Junior Faith Walker participates in taekwondo at Kuk Sool Won of the River Valley. After Walker’s past two years at Kuk Sool, she recently claimed her red belt.
“I’ve always wanted to be in shape and learn how to defend myself. I will be testing for a red belt with a brown stripe in January,” Walker said.
Not only does Walker practice taekwondo, she plays with the school band, a member of NHS, and Partner’s Club. Throughout her week she attends four regular classes and the time she starts her class depends on the day.
“It’s taken some time trying to balance everything with Kuk Sool Won, but it all seems to work out,” Walker said.
Some of the most common injuries from taekwondo are bruising, leg pulls, and strains. Many receive the injuries from receiving or delivering a kick.
“Our environment is exciting because we all support each other and encourage each other to do our best,” Walker said.
