Thank You Letter
Test Date June 2016

I would like to thank David Schultz for always being there for me. David was my partner for sparring, grappling, and self-defense.
I would like to thank Peter Schultz because he’s been there ever since I’ve started. He was always gentle to me because I really don’t like to get hurt.
I want to thank Mrs. Schultz because when I put my hands down she reminded me to bring them up. She would be there every single time I put my hands down and would keep reminding me over and over and over again. Now it is really useful so when I’m sparring I’m not always getting hit in the head.
I want to thank Mr. Schultz for helping me with sparring. Whenever I had someone big he would always have confidence in me and tell me to never give up. Thanks Schultz’s, you really help me.
I want to thank Kyle Berube for making sure I always have fun in class. He’s a really, really nice guy and I don’t know how much I could thank him for being there for me.
I want to thank Luke Dobson because he helped me with my stances and if I got it wrong he helped me fix it. It really helps me in sparring and self-defense.
I want to thank Mr. Lane for being my mentor because he took time off from work just to help me and a couple of my other classmates in TaeKwonDo to train hard. Mr. Lane has increased my push-ups. He made me do more push-ups than my body can hold, but it’s been really good because we have to do 1000 push-ups for the Black Belt test. Thank you so much, Mr. Lane.
I want to thank Master Randall because he’s been my teacher for five years and helped me out with my training. I’ve learned a lot more than I knew when I was a white belt in TaeKwonDo because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be able to protect myself. Thanks dad!!!!!!!!!!
And, thank you to Gabriel Wilber because he helped me with my stances. He helps me with my side kicks. He helps me with sparring and self-defense. He helps me with just about everything and I learned I’m not the fastest learner but with Mr. Wilber’s help I can learn pretty fast.
I want to thank Mrs. Esposito. She has been there for me. She invited me to her basement to train with her. She helps me do my conditioning and a couple of my other classmates in TaeKwonDo. She’s been really awesome to me and Gabe.
Last, but not least, I want to thank Gabby Whisnant because she’s really fun to play with in anything goes sparring. She’s a really, really hard person to spar. She gives me a good challenge.
Thank you everybody who has helped throughout my training.
