I attended my first Tae Kwon Do class in nearly a week. My cold has subsided enough where I was not as concerned about me passing out in class as I was last week. There were a few minor coughing fits, but nothing bad enough to warrant me stepping out of the class. I warned any partner I had to be careful due to my cold. I would not wish that on anyone. It was horrible.
The instructor had us facing different directions from each other when doing forms. This is to see how well we knew them. People who do not know forms as well can be easily confused when facing a different direction than they are used to. I fared pretty well. I made a couple minor mistakes, but a few of the students got really confused. I laughed when my mom made a mistake and the person next to her echoed the same mistake. He did not know the form very well and was watching her as best he could since she was the closest to him on that side. It was humorous. I managed not to say anything, though. I did not want to irritate anyone.
I helped that student and another go through one of the forms after class. I am pretty sure one will be testing for his first black belt in June. I am not sure about the other one, though. They have some work to do before they are ready, though. It will be interesting to see their progress.
