July 6, 2018 – Tae Kwon Do for Grandparents

The Tae Kwon Do master at the school told us that the Grand Master Lee teaches a class for grandparents on Friday mornings.  It is free to attend one class to decide if you like it.  It turns out that the location is just down the street from Son-in-Love George’s office. We stopped in Milwaukee Tools and had lunch in the company cafeteria.

Daughter Jennifer took stills and videos of our class and laughed at us. We wore shorts and t-shirts.  If you decide to take another class, you have to buy a Tae Kwon Do outfit. We stood in the back behind the regulars.

I call this head rolling.

The floor was soft and cushy.  Grand Master Lee led from the mirrored wall.  Note that several people did their Tae Kwon Do from or with chairs.

Here, more advanced students taught us to kick our legs out sideways. It sure helped to have my hands on her shoulders; I’m sure I would have fallen over otherwise. That is Grand Master Lee in the foreground.  A delightful man. Andy and his partner are reflected in the mirror.

The scene was hilarious to Jennifer.  Ha! She’ll get old one day. OK, I laughed at all these videos too.  I ought to be ashamed and too embarrassed to show them.

She did not capture the whole scene, but a room full of old people lying on the floor and swinging their legs around in the air is somewhat humorous, I have to admit.

I could not manage to get my legs parallel to the floor or even to keep them as far up as I did.  I kept rolling back down.

It was a nice workout and stretching workout.  Andy did not like the yelling (from the kids class; we grandparents didn’t yell much) so we will probably go back to Tai Chi when we get home. It was fun to have the experience.

    I would love to see you in your Tae Kwon Do outfit! I would probably have stayed at Milwaukee Tools. They would have to escort me out at closing time. I love those red tools. I hope you and Andy are both well.

      Yes, we love the red tools. George gave us a good tour a couple years ago so we have seen most of the facility. Tae Kwon Do outfits look a lot like pajamas to me.
