At age 7, Madelynn Gorman-Shore was looking for a sport she could participate in and enjoy. Little did she or her family know that a taekwondo demonstration during her time at the Collegiate Academy charter school would capture her imagination.
“I thought it was really cool,” she said. “It looked energetic and fun to do.”
“It looked exciting to her. She said that she wanted to do taekwondo, and I said, ‘Are you sure?’ ” said Erin Gorman-Shore, Madelynn’s mom.
