When I was a little girl, I used to do everything my little brain could think of to escape taekwondo training. After I passed my black belt test, I promptly and regrettably quitted (albeit temporarily) taekwondo. I graduated from primary school and moved on to secondary school, where I came to know of this taekwondo club, in SMJK Kwang Hua. Admittably, at first, I was only joining for the extra-curricular marks, but gradually, I fell in love with the community, the love and passion for taekwondo in the members, the friendliness and warmth of the members. And I’m proud to say I haven’t fell out of love with SMJK Kwang Hua’s taekwondo club yet, and probably never will!
It’s been nearly 40 years since our club was established, back in the early 1980s. Since then, for decades, generations of taekwondo-loving students have strived to keep up the good work, constantly changing the club for the better. Also, words cannot explain my immense gratitude for the much loved Sir Leong Yong Wah, who dedicates his time and effort for the well-being of his students, and also Mr Tan Kien Tat, who is the perfect role model for passionate taekwondo-loving students.
SMJK Kwang Hua’s taekwondo club is unique in the sense that we have members who are not studying in our school. Tiny children can be found training alongside the much older seniors, brows furrowed in concentration and sweat dripping from their little chins. Age is not an issue when it comes to taekwondo. Sometimes, it’s the youngest members that are the best fighters!
At approximately 4 p.m every Saturday, members would rush through the school gates, eager to arrive early to either train or share a joke or two with their friends. At 4.30p.m. sharp, class would begin, ending at 6.30p.m. All are welcome to join our loving community and share the fun! One thing though, the 2.4km run is made much harder because of our slopes and hills. Come mentally and physically prepared!
To me, taekwondo is not merely just a sport. It’s a way of life.
