Sunday, 19th June 2011 was a long day for the members of SMK Seksyen 9 taekwondo club. They were told their demonstration would be around 9.30 am. They waited and waited under the blistering sun. Usually they are a high spirited bunch, but their enthusiasm took a dip that day when their turn never seems to come. Their energy were sapped out, and many were getting restless. I had to think of ways to cheer them up . It was for a full 3 hours under the torrid weather before they were told to perform their demo at around 12.30 pm.
With their somewhat flagging spirit, I am heartened to say they gave a great show with the audience cheering as they showed off their stunts and power in destruction. The star for the day was Muhammad Aiman bin Md Nasir who jumped over 8 human obstacles to break a board. The cheer and scream he drew forth from the audience was deafening but encouraging.
