To the editor:

I have been doing martial arts for 4fouryears. I will be 9 soon. That means I started when I was 5! I am a brown belt, and I am training for a black belt. It is very fun! It is also a lot of work. We study Taekwondo. It means a lot to be a brown belt. All this work will pay off. It has helped my physical health, mental health (aka anxiety), and concentration.
