Mama That Could Get Her Black Belt | 9 Days to Black Belt – Practice at the park

Here’s a fun little video clip of me training at the local park with my partner, Rebecca. I’m grateful she is able to partner with me for my test. A great target/bag holder and committed partner helps make the journey so much smoother. Rebecca is a dedicated Tae Kwon Do student who is testing this month for her advanced Blue Belt, along with my son, Sol.

Since I missed a day of training due to a tummy bug, I made up for it with a workout at our local park. It was a good challenge working out on uneven ground.  It’s crazy, I think this is the strongest my legs have ever been.  I thought I was going to try to trim down for my test to be lighter on my feet, but it has been an asset to bulk up in my legs a bit.  It has helped with strength and power when I work on bag kicks.

My sister, Ma’am Polly Villatuya, is the owner of Villatuya’s Academy of Tae Kwon Do in St. George, UT. It means so much to me to have her as my instructor. She has graciously worked around my injuries this past year, yet doesn’t let up on disciplining me on my form and technique. She pushes me to just the right limit. I have a tremendous amount of respect for her, not just because she is my sister, but because she is an incredible Martial artist and instructor. So you know…I want to make my sis proud:-)
