Taekwondo

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art with an emphasis on defence rather than attack.
Katie brought in her Dobok (uniform) and sparring equipment to share with her classmates (who were all keen to do some sparring with her!)
Katie gave us a demonstration and we were very impressed with how high and fast she could kick!
