    I ≪3 Taekwondo

    I've done a lot of sports. Soccer, track, basketball, but I never liked any of them. But I started taekwondo about six month ago and I absolutely enjoy every minute of it. I go 4 days a week (which is pretty tough on gas). My school is meant to make fighters, so the work outs are...

    I'm 14, and I'm a very good athlete.

    I'm not very big. In fact, I'm rather small for my age, but I'm very fast. I'm usually one of the smallest boys on my team, but I have lightning reflexes and I play smartly. In other words, size doesn't matter, as much as people think. I've played just about every sport, from...
