belt_bible_1_featuredThe Bible tells us that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.  We are to take care of them.  We do this spiritually through devotions and reading of God’s Word as well as memorization of bible verses.  Physically TKD is a ways of developing and maintaining strength, stamina, quickness, flexibility, coordination and balance.  One of our favorite bible verses talks about a race . . . Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly, I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.  1 Corinthians 9:24-27
