Starting out is probably the hardest part in any endeavor a person undertakes. And martial arts are no different.
To Dina Parker, a 77 year old retired tap dancing teacher, training for Taekwon-Do started out as form of hobby.
She was encouraged by the involvement of her sons in this sport. Eventually, she developed a love for the sport and has continued to trained since then. Of course persistance has paid off and now she proudly sports a black belt.
She really shows how you just have to find the right motivation, make a start, and then begin working your way through those goals one by one.
Ultimately, martials arts is not just about enjoying a hobby. It’s developing a lifestyle and a commitment to live it, just like Ms. Parker.
