Welcome to Little Black Belt, a martial arts blog about life, learning, and the journey towards a girl’s greatest accessory: a black belt in taekwondo!
Hello! My name is Melanie, and I am your resident Tae Kwon Diva. This blog began as an online diary to chronicle the insights and ideas I was having about a year into my taekwondo training.
Over time the blog has morphed into something different. Practicing martial arts has not only taught me a great deal about the taekwondo itself, but I’ve gained insight about self-development, facing challenges, leadership, maintaining a positive attitude, and living your best life.
My goal is to share those lessons with you.
Here’s the truth:
Taekwondo helped me rein in the crazy and create an awesome life. Martial arts may not be for you, but the life lessons I’ve gained from it can help everyone.
If you’d like to read more about how I got into taekwondo and my thoughts on modern-day practice, check out my interview on my fellow martial arts blogger page: MyWifeIsaBlackBelt.Com.
The black belt mindset is for everyone, regardless of martial arts experience or training.
Confidence, perseverance, hunger to learn, and becoming the best version of yourself can happen without setting foot in a dojang. It’s about breaking bad habits and stopping the endless chase for answers to the wrong questions.
