Tae Kwon Do Kicks Butt!

So, with RW having OCD it's hard to find a sport he will do. We tried T-Ball, but it was bad. He didn't want to get dirty or run around the bases. He didn't even want to try football, because it was.. dirty! So, when we said he wanted to try Tae Kwon Do, we said "SURE!" and it turned out to be the best thing! He LOVES it! It's clean and structured. PERFECT for him! He's been in it a couple of months, and already tested for his Yellow Belt! :D
