Hello, Nick! I'm Kyorugi, the girl obsessed with taekwondo! I'm training to be an instructor - though I don't have my black belt yet. I am testing for it next summer though! (not this coming summer, the summer after that) Currently I hold the rank of blue stripe belt. (We call it blue stripe, but it's actually a blue belt with a black stripe. It precedes brown belt.)
I love the 39 Clues, as well as Young Samurai, but I haven't been reading a lot lately because I've been working on several books of my own. I hope to finish my first book by the end of this year, although that might not happen because with my taekwondo books, I want to get my black belt first and gain a better understanding of the spiritual side of taekwondo. I'm finally making progress on my book, though! It's going to be awesome! I don't share my writing on here, though, unless it's a true story and I don't want to publish it.
I also have ambitions to make the Olympic team someday. I know it's going to take a lot of effort to get there, but I'm willing to try. And I'm willing to fail and try again. In addition to that, I hope to be in the poomsae championships. (Poomsae means taekwondo forms. "Form" is short for "formal exercises." A form is basically a series of martial arts moves performed in a certain order.) I have faith that I will reach these dreams someday because I not only believe in myself, but I'm training with the best instructors ever.
Yeah . . . I talk about taekwondo a lot.
