I began to take class after watching my family take classes. They enjoyed themselves & my doctors all told me that I needed to exercise, especially after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia. When I began, I was on nightly medicine for the pain. Now, 2 years later, I am no longer on any medicine, & my doctor called me a “poster child” of what to do with fibromyalgia. It has taught both of my children the meaning of commitment & goal setting. Jon’s speech has improved so much that he will soon be dismissed from the speech program. He also has much more confidence & is willing to try new things. My daughter is enjoying the exercise & newfound confidence. She enjoys competing in tournaments, helping others, & has learned that practice makes better & applies this to her school work. My husband enjoys the health benefits of TKD & uses it to stay in shape & as a stress reliever.
