At Betsy Ross, we know school isn't just about reading and math! Today we had Mr. L come to our class and teach a PE lesson. The students learned how to connect their left and right brains while being active. They also learned how to take their pulse and do exercises to increase their heart rate.
Thank you to our resident Tae Kwon Do expert, Angel for showing us his amazing skills!
Keep up the good work. Your parents and your Master must be so proud of you!
In case you don't know what Tae Kwon Do means:
Tae (태, 跆) means "to stomp" or "to strike or break with the foot";
Kwon (권, 拳) means "to strike or break with the fist";
Do (도, 道) means "way of life".
Thus, taekwondo may be loosely translated as "the way of the foot and the hand.
As many of you know, I am a great believer in the importance of extra-curricular activities for children. Being in a church, sport, or organization can have tremendous positive impact on our their lives and give them confidence in so many other areas.
As my students already know, I practice what I preach! I coach baseball and soccer,
and also lead a Cub Scout Den as well.
