Empowering Girls: Taekwondo Orange Belt


Ainsley passed her test for her Taekwondo Orange Belt on Saturday.

Of about 25 people testing for various levels of belt, there were four girls. She was the only girl her age and in her belt category.

I was extraordinarily proud of her.

We witnessed a middle-aged woman qualify for her black belt. Watching her achieve that skill level was so gratifying to both she and I. Ainsley was so excited to watch her break a board with her hand and her foot.

Give her a pat on the back from me! I earned my orange belt in college, had a "thing" with my instructor. He turned out to be a jerk. Warn Her! It's all that admirng themselves in the mirror too much I think.
