Johnathon got a Credit and a Grading Award

One of my hobbies is Taekwondo – a martial art that originated in Korea but is now one of the most widely practiced martial arts in the world. I myself have been training long enough that I’m approaching my 2nd degree (black belt) grading later this year.

My son, Johnathon, does a form of Taekwondo designed specifically for young kids aged 4 – 7. He had a grading last week, to get his Little PUMA brown belt. Turns out he did well enough to get a Credit! Later the same day, I spoke to his instructor and she told me how surprised she was. The previous week, she had told Johnathon she wasn’t going to let him grade because he’d been so naughty in recent lessons! However, she let him grade, and he did a great job – in fact, he did such a great job, he also got the Grading Award as well as the Credit!

As I’ve only ever had one credit pass in my coloured belt gradings and I’ve never received a grading award, I was really, really proud of Johnathon for doing so well! His instructor told me how amazed she was at his performance at the grading, especially as she’d threatened to stop him from grading!

Well done, Johnathon!
