My daughter began Taekwondo classes in Grantham in April of 2012 when she was 9 years old. Now, just four years later, she is getting ready to test for her black belt and I couldn't be more proud. She has shown great dedication to this sport as she now attends classes in Hanover as well as in Grantham.

Taekwondo has been good for her self confidence as well as teaching her how to set goals and focus on getting to those goals. I'm especially thankful for the self defense aspect that Taekwondo has given her. She has been to several tournaments in the last four years and has done well in competition. We are proud to be part of the Blue Wave family and have made many lifelong friends.

Blue Wave Taekwondo has been an incredibly positive experience for not only our two boys that have been students of Master Hopkins' for 4 years now, but for the entire family as well! It is focused on respect for their fellow higher AND lower ranking students, their instructors and for their family and friends, too! The focus and determination by the students, and the support and dedication given by the instructors, is unparalleled. No other sport that my children have been involved in is as organized, respected or as fun as BLUE WAVE TAEKWONDO!

Joining Blue Wave Tae Kwon Do is one of the best choices I have ever made. It has helped shape my life in so many ways. For starters, it introduced me to people I had almost never talked to before. I am rather close with some of my friends in Tae Kwon Do. It also helped my in academics, believe it or not. It taught me discipline, and patience. It emphasized the point of having to work hard for what you want in life, and not waiting for it to come to you. I have always wanted to be a black belt, and the tenacity that comes with reaching that goal is a great lesson in life. Tae Kwon Do has also helped me immensely in athletics. It increased my flexibility, my stamina, strength, and every possible thing that could have been improved. Tae Kwon Do is amazing. It is one of the greatest sports on this planet, and I am extremely happy to say that I am a part of Blue Wave.

Taekwondo has been beneficial to me in many different ways. Physically, it keeps me fit and flexible, and helps with my balance. It also helps me grow as a leader. Many times I teach others, which I rarely have the opportunity to do elsewhere. Finally, I have made many friends in Taekwondo that I would never have met otherwise. Taekwondo has been great for me and I will continue to do it for as long as I can.
