My name is Sage Hunter Santos and I am 11 years old. I started Taekwondo when I was only 8 years old. Before I was in martial arts, I have never heard of anything about Taekwondo except karate and wrestling. I was mostly into sports like hockey, football, and basketball. I remembered my first day in Mu Do Martial Arts, I was very shy and nervous, but Master Daniel was very nice and welcoming to me. After my first day, I realized how fun and awesome Taekwondo is. I have also made lots of friends along the way, but sadly some of my friends that I started with are not going to finish with me because they quit, but I am very proud of myself and my other friends that are still around. Even though I have played other sports, Taekwondo training has been my favorite. It has taught me discipline, confidence, and integrity. I love sparring, breaking boards, training with my friends, and fighting in all of my tournaments. I still cannot believe that I can actually do all these things.
I am very excited to be a black belt soon. I like to thank my parts for their support, cheering me on, and being there for me to all of my classes and tournaments. Thanks you to Master Daniel for training me, being there for me and believing in me when I thought I could not do it. He is the best instructor that always believes that I can do better and I am proud to be his student. It has been so much fun and I have learned a lot about myself. I am proud to say, “I AM A STUDENT FROM MU DO MARTIAL ARTS!
