Overview

Sam lives on a farm in the country with his family, but he practises his Taekwondo every day with his siblings at home. In The Spirit of Courage, Sam personally struggles with his passion for Taekwondo, and he faces some challenging situations, including his grading to a higher belt level. In order to overcome these hurdles, his big brother, Stephen, first establishes the need for courage. He offers Sam some reassurance and perceptively provides Sam with opportunities to practise his courage. So Sam learns to act bravely when he doesn't really feel brave. Through this process, Sam discovers his will to achieve is within him.

The Spirit of Courage does not provide instruction or teaching about Taekwondo but offers insight on how Taekwondo has positively infl uenced the life of a little boy and his family.

The martial art and Olympic sport of Taekwondo provides children with opportunities to practice the virtues of courage, courtesy, honesty, perseverance, and self-control. These virtues are subtly interwoven in The Spirit of Courage and create an atmosphere of love and respect.

The Spirit of Courage is the second book in a series that seeks to engage children's empathy, develop their characters, and enhance their lives.
