Dragonchucks at WMAC HapKido Springbreak Camp
At WMAC, just as an adult higher belt is expected to help with the training of lower belts, from early in their training children are given the opportunity to teach their peers. At last week’s Spring Break Camp I got to watch as the kids brought a high level of patience and focus to the task of sharing their knowledge.
Under the tutelage of Sabumnim, Bodan Instructor Lauren, and Assistant Instructor Ezeldine, our young warriors made rapid progress through their forms and techniques, especially “dragonchucks”, the Dragon Form/nunchuck hybrid, an advanced, kids-only form. Because if there’s one thing kids love even more than teaching each other, it’s knowing how to do something that the adults around them don’t.
