Mandie Calvert was uncertain about enrolling her then 4-year-old son, Zachary, in Choi Kwang Do.
Zachary was born at 26 weeks as a micro preemie and weighed less that two pounds. Micro preemie babies have a survival rate of about 60 to 70 percent and about 40 percent of them have long-term health complications.
“Zachary has what’s called Sensory Processing Disorder,” she said. “He wasn’t able to stand well, and it took him as much as 18 seconds to respond to people and actions.”
Importance of Uniforms
Posted: May 03, 2019
The moment a student begins the CKD journey, he or she receives a uniform. To earn their White belt, the student must study and answer seven questions correctly. No belts are given, all belts are earned. They are both special moments as can easily be seen on a student’s face. But how can a uniform and belt set the tone for the rest of their practice?
The uniform demonstrates a student’s commitment to growing and progressing on their journey. People who learn commitment at an early age are better able to persevere when situations become difficult. Any successful career requires commitment. So do relationships, friendships and parenthood. Teaching your student, or yourself, about commitment sets a foundation for success.
