The North Carolina Bar Association's Member's in Focus series recently did a fascinating video profile on Laura Noble and her enthusiasm for Tae Kwon Do.
“After watching them for several weeks, my husband and I sort of got an itch so we joined too. We hope to be a family of black belts,” she says.
Tae Kwon Do is an intense workout that requires intellectual as well as physical rigor, with a focus on developing character, moral and ethical traits. Noble says that when she’s practicing, she’s not just working on improving her form, she’s working on being a better person.
“Tae Kwon Do has enhanced my ability as an attorney. Both in the way that I communicate with my clients, but also the way I communicate with opposing counsel and in the courtroom. You know, no matter what they say, they’re not trying to kick me in the head, so how bad can it be?” she laughs.
