Yes I was a competitive person but me and my child are different people for sure. Thanks for responding. I am on here to learn what I can and help him. It’s exciting to see him so interested in Tae Kwon Do and seeing his progress so I was just trying to get some advice to help him. I am definitely not stressed about any of this.He is 6. Lighten up. You mentioned a whole bunch of times how competitive you were. Let the kid be the kid. There is no one taekwondo and there is no one taekwondo culture. Every dojang is unique.
