Why I do Kung Fu
2. To be healthy
I jump and run a lot in training. The more I train, the less often I get sick. The less I get sick and the more I train, the faster I grow and the stronger I get.
3. To think better
The better my movements are, the faster I get. I even begin to think faster and better, because the fitter I am, the more I can do.
4. To be balanced and calm
Because I move a lot in training and have learned to focus, I am calmer and more balanced. My teachers and parents have noticed – Kung Fu helps me to concentrate.
5. To be flexible
Stretching is lots of fun and really important. It helps me to get stronger and fitter – the more flexible I am, the more I can do.
6. To get stronger
We do a lot of pushups, squats; we run and jump a lot. Sometimes it gets very difficult, but when the class is over, we still have energy to play. Every day I am becoming stronger for longer and soon will be able to beat my dad at wrestling.
7. To defend myself and my friends
When I train a lot, I get more confident in my abilities and myself. Confidence and skills help me to not be afraid of bullies.
8. To have new friends
There are a lot of children at Golden Dragon – I like to be friends with them, here I have a lot of friends and we spend a lot of time together after training.
9. I like the instructor at Golden Dragon Kung Fu School
Kung Fu instructors at Golden Dragon can do a lot of things. They do everything with us. We have someone to look up to. Also sometimes we have tea ceremonies, where instructors tell us lots interesting stories.
10. I watched “Kung Fu Panda” and after that I wanted to become just as awesome
I love movies, but most of all “Kung Fu Panda”- this movie is very funny and Panda is very kind and strong. I want to be like Panda.
