Tiniest Taekwondoists

The Huffington Post Comedy blog recently crowned this “Toddler Taekwondo” competition video as “the cutest thing ever.”

Maybe they’re right, but the thing is, it wasn’t at all unusual for kids back in the olden days to fully partake in adult activities, especially since they lacked the luxury of lengthy lifespans.

But in our current climate of over-coddling children, seeing uncoordinated adorable ankle-biters doing stuff they aren’t “supposed” to be doing for at least several more years compels us mystified big people to erupt in giddy fits of ooh-ing and aww-ing.

(Oh, what the heck, it is cute though.)
