Korean traditional martial art: Taekkyon

Taekkyeon lesson

These days I am learning¬†taekkyon with my friends at school. At the beginning of the “free semester”, we can choose any class we want. It’s similar to to a university’s class registration system.

Taekkyon resembles fluid dance movements. Players use kicks and an opponent’s moves to knock them down. Taekkyon is the first martial art to join the UNESCO World Heritage list. However, it has remained unknown to the world outside of Korea for centuries. During this time, Chinese kung fu and Japanese karate have become popular.

Today was my second taekkyon lesson, so it is still a little hard for me.

Rain

It was raining when I went home today. But I didn’t have an umbrella. So I got very wet! And I was really cold! My mom had to be at the cafe, so she couldn’t pick me up at school. My mom was very wet, too!

How to cut CO2

Today at school I learned about how to save energy. There are six things that make earth hot. One thing that makes earth hotter is carbon dioxide. From now on, I will not fart. I don’t want to make more carbon dioxide.
