Internet Falls In Love With Adorable Taekwondo Toddler, 3-Yr-Old Recites Student’s Creed In Cutest Way.

Taekwondo combines elements of Karate, Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu. The 60-year-old self defence practice is also the national martial art of Korea. With extremely fast kicks and devastating combinations, this style is not for the faint of heart.

Sophie Wong may only be three years old and new to the practice, but she’s already giving it all she’s got. She might not have been able to pronounce all the words, but that didn’t stop this little taekwondo master from reciting the entire student creed with energy and enthusiasm; as she pledged her dedication to the martial art and being the best that she can be.

Leeds Taekwondo & Premier Martial Arts Centre captured a video of their pint-sized student performing the recitation and some pretty adorable moves at the same time. The clip has gone viral for all the right reasons since the martial arts school first shared it on their Facebook page.

Sophie started learning taekwondo, about a month before this video was recorded, after being inspired by her 6-year-old brother who also practices the martial art. The school says Sophie is their youngest -and admittedly most adorable- student.

“We’re always trying to get the best out of our young people, but for a 3-year-old I’ve never seen this type of focus and dedication. Her attitude is fantastic,†the owner of the school said.

Check out her adorable recitation below!
