From about grade 2 up to the end of grade 7, I was involved in a Martial Arts called Tae Kwon Do.
I enjoyed it and had a lot of fun, I
but not everybody felt the same way.
A lot of people
thought that Tae Kwon Do didnt qualify as a sport,
because those people never got into it,
and just from looking at it decided that it takes no skill to get
to the top.
I understand where all of these thoughts are coming from, I too thought the same thing just watching the little kids as white belts,
but I realised later, once I had recieved
black belt and was accepted into the "demo team," it started to get very challenging.
Now, if you're wondering why I quit Tae Kwon Do, it's not because I got bored because it was too easy.
It's because I did it 6 days a week
and I wanted more free time.
Also 'cause I wanted to try new things.

The linked site above mentions that Tae Kwon Do is one of only two martial arts to be in the Olympic Games,
implying that it is technically
more qualified to be an actual sport than karate or kung fu.
