In Step With … Simon Kraushaar

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

Jumping on his trampoline and riding his bike are a couple of the fun things that 7-year-old Simon Kraushaar likes to do. Now he adds Tae Kwon Do to that list. He decided he wanted to try out a new sport. After friends gave glowing reviews about Master Shim’s World Class Tae Kwon Do, Simon started at the Fayetteville location six months ago. “I think the instructors are all awesome!” states Devan Stewart, Simon’s mom. “They are great with the kids and make sure they have tons of fun while maintaining an appropriate level of discipline when necessary. Simon loves them and we always feel comfortable dropping our kids off with them for special events/camps.”

 

With more on his Tae Kwon Do adventure, here’s April’s student profile with Simon Kraushaar.

 

What is your belt level?

Green Stripe

 

Did you have any problems/issues that Tae Kwon Do helped you overcome?

I was very shy before and it has helped me with that.

 

Is it good exercise?

Yes. It makes me very tired at the end of the day.

 

Why do you like Tae Kwon Do? Why would you tell another kid that it is fun to do?

I like it because you learn how to fight if you ever have to defend yourself. I would tell another kid that it is fun because the instructors are always fun.

 

Why would you encourage someone else to consider Tae Kwon Do?

Because every time you get better at something new it makes you feel very happy.

 

Anything else you would like to add?

I really like sparring!!

 

 

In Step With … Zachary Koehler

Sunday, April 28th, 2019

Nine-year old Zachary Koehler is new to Tae Kwon Do, after starting in January. His grandparents gave the gift that keeps on giving … and though it’s early, they have seen some positive changes. “We gave him the membership as a Christmas gift,” states grandparents Barry and Kathy Holcomb. “He shows more willing(ness) to answer questions when asked,” they say, adding, “he has developed strength and flexibility.” With more on what made Tae Kwon Do a good choice, here’s this month’s student profile on Zachary Koehler.

What is your belt level? At what location do you attend classes?

I just received my yellow belt. I attend classes at the Fayetteville location.

 

Why do you like Tae Kwon Do?

It’s challenging, but in a good way. It is a sport you do at our own pace. You control your pace based on what you put into it.

 

What are some of your Tae Kwon Do achievements?

After being in it for only a couple of months, I have received my yellow belt. My flexibility and range of motion has improved.

 

Why would you encourage someone else to consider Tae Kwon Do?

It’s a fun sport that almost anyone can take up. It’s up to you what you put into it.

Easter is almost here. Whether you are commemorating a religious holiday and Jesus’ crucifixion, or observing the day of springtime fun, there are sure to be activities that you will enjoy.

 

Many parks and churches are hosting Easter egg hunts. There are a few notable holiday happenings around the city. Callanwalde Fine Arts Center will hold an Eggstravaganza event, while Callaway Gardens is pairing its egg hunt with a 5K race, a kids’ race, entertainment and an Easter Sunday morning sunrise service. Stone Mountain Park will also host an Easter Sunday service, both at the base and the top of the mountain.

 

Other activities during Easter weekend include the Georgia Renaissance Festival in Fairburn; several restaurants serving Easter brunch, including Park Tavern and downtown’s Ritz Carlton; and free entrance into several area national parks.

 

Celebrate. Commemorate. Invigorate yourself with a relaxing weekend of enjoyable activities.

 

Happy Easter from Master Shim’s World Class Tae Kwon Do.

Exercise – Good for the Mind

Monday, April 15th, 2019

April is National Autism Awareness Month. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) describes a group of neurodevelopmental disorders. The goal of the month designation is to increase awareness about autism itself, as well as anything relating to the condition. That includes understanding methods that can be used to help those dealing with autism. One such method is exercise.

 

According to autism.com, studies show that vigorous exercise at least 20 minutes in length, 3-4 times per week, can help decrease hyperactive or destructive behaviors. It also helps stave off unhealthy weight gain that can creep in with a sedentary lifestyle. If a loved one in your life is living with autism, healthy options are available to help.

 

Anyone seeking an activity that will get the blood pumping, the mind engaged and offer good clean fun doesn’t have to look any further. Master Shim’s World Class Tae Kwon Do may be the perfect physical exercise outlet for all ages.
