Yikes, all! I bought a hogu, which is the protective pad for sparring for taekwondo. I also bought arm and leg pads and a mouth guard. I thought only athletes needed mouthguards!! :lol: I am going to put on all this gear tonight and go sparring. Like for real. With other people who are stronger and faster than me. Ummmm, good thing I have protection, eh?

Sounds fun! I attended my first sparring class yesterday morning. It was a great way to start the weekend. Was so fun! I hope you enjoy it!

Remember to move and dodge and watch out! It's such good fun once you get used to it! :hyper:
My trainer thinks I'm bad at sparring (or could be better...) because I've never been hurt - I tend to just stand there and watch them kick me! He says he doesn't want to start hurting me, but unless I move he's going to start beating me up! :yikes: I'd better get him first! :lol:
