Songahm Taekwondo

Songham Taekwondo is a great sport to be involved in! I joined our local ATA school about a year ago. I have always wanted to be in a martial art, not only for self-defense, but also for physical fitness and to have a long-term goal. It is great for flexibility and cardio!

Jeremy and I competed in our first tournament on January 27, in Valdosta, GA. We had a great time. It was a wonderful learning experience. We will be attending two other regional tournaments in March and April.

I am currently a green belt and Jeremy is as well. Shelby decided to drop out for a period of time, and now that he is back in, he is a yellow belt.

This sport has brought my family closer together. My mom, Mary, (who is in this picture with me) is 59 years old and she is currently a camo belt. My two nieces are also involved, and my sister Lisa is going to join when her college schedule gets a little better.
