It’s now my fifth year being in SMK BUD(3)’s Taekwondo Club, and now that I think about it, I realise time really flies before our eyes. I can still remember clearly how it was like when I first joined Taekwondo during 2010 when I was Form 1. And to think that now I’m here, writing this as the secretary of our club… Time really flies. Throughout the years, our club has been improving rapidly, and the number of students who are interested to join have also increased greatly as the years go by.
“What makes the students so interested in joining our Taekwondo Club?” That’s what everybody asks. Truthfully, which sport if none other than Taekwondo can blend discipline with fun during training? Taekwondo is not just a sport, it exposes and subjects us to strict discipline, leadership and teamwork and at the same time develops our strength, speed, flexibility, balance, stamina and self-awareness. It builds up our confidence and gives us a boost of faith in ourselves.
What makes Taekwondo training fun? Of course it’s because we have a pair of professional instructors. Fun, friendly, patient and caring, they are none other than Master Yap Ping Soon and Master Tan Kien Tat. Both of them have shown great passion in teaching and guiding us. They always push us to our limits so we can improve and be better. Through them, we’ve gained much perseverance and we’ve acknowledged that when there’s no pain, there’s no gain.
Anyway, we all know that teamwork is important, and through events like Sports Day or Hari Koko when we are required to make a performance, we learn how to work together as a team and gain experience from it. Taekwondo makes us an all-rounder, one who not only excels in sports but also has discipline and team spirit in us. Together we have grown closer to each other through the sharing of experiences in various events and also in the midst of overcoming new challenges. One thing I’m sure of is that I’ll never regret joining Taekwondo because thanks to it, I’ve learned to get back up when I fall and not just stay down there forever.
Last but not least, on behalf of all the members, I would like to thank our teacher in charge Puan Kee, our instructors, and of course all the members of the committee who have put a lot of effort in making this club a success. Thank you so much.
