We had some fun today. Ninja Boy and I went to one of the local elementary schools to help our instructor with a class. This was a BIG class – 60 boys and girls in Grade 6. One of the girls comes to our Taekwondo club and her black belt mum was there to help too.
So with four black belts and two teachers, we did our best to keep the mob under control!
I think most of the kids had fun. We did a warmup, some front and side kicks, some partner kicking and self defence. Towards the end, the instructor asked Ninja Boy to demonstrate some more advanced kicks, which he did, and then he set up a board break.
Three children crouched down next to each other and Ninja Boy performed a flying side kick over them and broke the board. I was so pleased that he did it – and the kids watching were impressed. (Unfortunately I didn’t take the camera.)
The other mum and I did a bit of sparring with all our protective equipment on too.
I think our instructor will find a class of ten kids easy after today!
