Watching Will come into his own as a student of Tae-Kwon-Do has been so much fun, and seeing him rewarded for his hard work and focus nearly brought tears to my eyes. Regardless of how long Will sticks with this sport, the time (and money) we've invested in helping Will learn how to control and manipulate his body, focus his energy, respect his elders, and work hard toward an individual goal has been well worth it.
