World Tae Kwon Do Champion Visits Brunner

Last week a two-time Tae Kwon Do World Champion came to visit our school. Her name is Lyndsay Conway.

She is originally from Ireland but grew up in New York. Ukraine asked Lyndsay to represent their national team. She won her first world championship in 2013 and only recently won her second in October in Dublin. She is a 3rd grade black belt.

She spoke to us about how she achieved her dreams. After that she did a demonstration of her skills with Ms. McNamara! Then, she asked Patrick from 5th class to come up, she gave him a suit and some sparring gear. Next, he put on Lyndsay’s black belt. He looked good! He gave 1,2’s and kicks.

Lyndsay let us all have a go at kicking and punching a “flipper”. Finally, she showed us herimage1 image4 image1 (1) image3 (1) gold medal and gave us her autograph.

It was a great day at school.
