Jasmine Leilani's Journey to Her First Black Belt.

Jasmine Leilani Goodwin

Taekwondo is an empty-handed/unarmed combat form/technique for self-

 defense that entails the use of the whole body. It involves the skillful application 

of techniques that include: punching, jumping, kicks, blocks, dodges, parrying 

actions with hands and feet. 

Taekwondo is more than a mere physical fighting skill. It represents a way of 

thinking and a pattern of life requiring strict discipline. It is a system of training 

both the mind and the body in which great emphasis is placed on the development 

of the trainee's moral character.
