In what can only be described as the cutest thing ever, Leeds Taekwondo & Premier Martial Arts Center captured a video of 3-year-old white belt Sophie Wong reciting the student creed with serious verve.
The video, which has undoubtedly melted many a heart, was posted to YouTube last Thursday and has since had more than 4 million views, and watched by more than 15 million people worldwide.
As the instructor goes through the lines of the taekwondo creed, the adorable tyke yells back in a delightful high-pitched voice whilst matching her teacher’s stances and hand gestures like a true tiny champion (which so happens to be the name of her class).
According to Leeds Taekwondo on their website, “The Student Creed is a little promise that all of our Lil Dragons and Juniors make at the beginning of each class. It is a promise to our instructors, their parents, and also to themselves that they will consistently uphold the values of a black belt: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit.”
Of little Sophie Wong, school owner Ricky Lam spoke admiringly of her enthusiasm in an interview with the Yorkshire Evening Post, “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.”
