And what happened next…
Stepping off the sidelines where I’d sat for five years watching my son do Taekwondo, and out onto the floor as a student was one of the MOST terrifying things I’ve ever done.
I had three main fears.
Fear Number 1: Look like a complete GOOSE in front of our club’s Master.
Fear Number 2: Look like a goose in front of the other students.
Fear Number 3: (Weird when I think about it now but at the time the most terrifying of all) Look like a goose in front of the other parents I had previously been sitting with on the sidelines.
Not very long into my journey of taking up Taekwondo at age 40, yep! It happened.
I went waaaaaay beyond GOOSE. And: It was BRUTAL!!!
