I'm Mike Michelozzi and a few months ago I started taking taekwondo classes because my twelve year old grand daughter asked me if I would with her and I thought that was a good idea.
My only previous experience is reading and watching a lot of youtube videos of all kinds of martial arts - bagua and aikido being my favorites. So for a few years I just improvised and tried to mimic what I saw and did some forms along with the stretching and other things I do.
For the past ten years I've hiked a couple of hours every morning and a few years ago began alternating with cycling outside. So I'm somewhat good shape for a sixty-seven year old and tkd is waking up new muscle groups, joints and connective tissue which I like.
