Tae Kwon Do belt testing all weekend long means lots of awesome like this:
but not so much this
Just like in dance and cheer, there is always that one (or more) parent or grandparent who could care less that there are perhaps ten or more people behind him or her who can not watch their pride and joy…BECAUSE YOU ARE BLOCKING THE VIEW!!! And often they will literally do this through the entire performance/presentation because, yes, that is how they roll. They’ll use their flash too because they either:
(a) do not understand the REPEATED requests from the kids’ teachers/coaches to NOT use flash photography for the safety of the kids.
(b) just don’t give a fuck
Given the fact that several people asked this dad to please move or sit down so they could enjoy their kid’s testing too and he remained standing, I’m guessing it is b. Definitely b.
I have a long lens. And I was lucky to get there early enough to get a good seat away from this dad photog.
Back to my Tae Kwon Dan.
Yeah, I’m pretty proud of him.
Even better, he is proud, very proud of his hard work.
Brown belt, black stripe for the win!
And that, my friends, is your moment of Dan!
