This is the ready stance - Chunbee. Jayla likes this move!
Middle punch - supposed to be aiming for the solar plexus of opponent.
On Justice's first night of practice the teacher said that this is a place where you are expected to be LOUD!
High punch - aiming for opponent's nose. :)
More punch sequences
After they rehearsed these techniques and performed their Chon-Ji form they each got to break boards which is one of Justice's favorite things! For the white belt level they break 1 board using the side kick technique. The trick is to hit the board with your heel right in the direct center of the board. I don't know why I didn't think to take a video of Justice breaking the board. Instead I had tried to take a picture and of course it turned out really blurry and you can't even tell what is going on. I'll have to try and get a video of him breaking at practice. Before Justice's test the black belts did a demonstation in which they did a sequential board break. They can break boards with their hands, feet, two boards at a time...you name it, they can do it. It's just like the movies! So cool to watch!
So, I am sure you can tell by now that I am really loving this tae kwon do thing! It is so fun watching Justice progress. This sport is really rewarding...maybe someday I can sign up! And yes, Justice passed his test and he is now an official YELLOW belt!
