Tae Kwon Do Inspiration

Last night we went to our Tae Kwon Do class and I was doing pretty good considering I still have a leg circulation problem (no diagnoses yet). I looked around at all the students (our class has been merged with the later class now) and said, is everyone here under 20? Apparently they all were and making me look bad, lol. Then the teacher told an inspiring story. She said when she was taking TKD there was an old lady who signed up. Not old like me ok, but really old, she was 70. She went through each level very slowly but kept going and didn't give up and by the time she was 76 or so she had her black belt!!!!!  Ok you couch potatoes get off the couch, no more excuses! IF SHE CAN DO IT, SO CAN YOU!

    I don't understand how people can afford these things...TKD here costs upwards of $150/month PER CHILD. How can I do that?? It's impossible!

  2. Oh -- and for what it's worth, I'd hardly consider you "old".

    What a rip-off Heather! Here its only $50 per child or a family plan for $100. Mosques in Ontario also offer it but I'm not sure how much they cost as mine doesn't that's for sure. I think you should shop around and check with different mosques. Not old? Pshaw, you're just being kind, rofl.
