Taekwondo is a martial art but nowadays it is also being played as a sport. It is something that I have been doing for the past 4-5 years. It is something that I love to do, I work upon my skills and fitness.Â
I demonstrated LO1, LO2, LO4, LO6
LO1-Identify own strengths and develop areas for growthÂ
My strength was attacking which helped me to gain a lot of points but before the tournament theÂ problem that I faced was with my defense, I used to lose a lot of points. With the help of my coach I practised a lot on my defense which helped me perform better in the tournamentÂ
LO2-Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills in the process.
Taekwondo helped me develop new skills as before starting taekwondo it was very hard for me to concentrate on academics or in different activities as I was easily distracted, but taekwondo helped me to develop my skill of concentration.
LO4-Show commitment to and perseverance in CAS experiences
I practice for 2 hours everyday except Sunday and I have been doing this for 5 years. IT is hard for me to manage time with studies as I am in 11th but for improving my skills it is necessary.
Also as I said before nowadays taekwondo is being played as sport, so as it is observed that people don’t care about their fitness and because of which people face a lot of diseases, for example obesity. Taekwondo helps me to be physically fit.
Taekwondo helped me to achieve learner profiles like being a risk taker, being balanced. This learner profiles will help me at any point of my life.
