Kids Can Not Keep Up With Me

I have been training for nearly a year and have never felt better than I do right now. I am stronger and far more confident than I have ever been. As a nanny of four, I was discouraged to realize at 22 years old I was having trouble keeping up with the kids. Now after 11 months of training, the kids can’t keep up with me.

As well as the changes I have experienced physically, I have noticed a change in how I view things. I was very much an “I Can’t!” person for the majority of my life. I didn’t have much faith in my abilities, and was often second-guessing myself. Since I began training I noticed little by little that I was becoming much more of an “I Can.” person. If an instructor told me to do something, I no longer hesitated or wondered if I could do it, over time I just did it. Whether it was how high I could jump or how low I could get into a position I learned to trust my instructors as well as myself.

This quickly spilled out into my life helping me to become more of the self-sufficient, confident woman that I now am.

What most impressed me about Oom Yung Doe was that not only was I learning from skilled instructors, I was also given personal attention and instruction from Regional, National and International Level Instructors. Of all the martial arts that I looked into and attempted there were none that offer so much.

I have had the privilege of attending three International Level lessons since I began training and have been amazed at what I have learned. Each of the instructors knows who I am and where I am in my training. This multi-leveled attention and guidance has been a key factor in my progress as a student over the last eleven months. I can’t wait to see what the next year of training will have in store for me.
