Being green, greedy, and egotistical, the Grinch soon wanted even more money. One way to get more money was to increase the enrollment in his Taekwondo schools; but, since Taekwondo was a martial art, it meant that the schools were tough on their students and their rank requirements so high that few students could ever become black belts. The Grinch found that by changing Taekwondo from a martial art to a martial sport that everyone could play the sport, and, by lowering rank requirements until anyone of any age could become a black belt, he could increase student enrollment and greatly increase his coffers.
Then the Grinch realized the potential of the Who children. If he started them young enough, enticed them with easy to attain black belts, and made them indentured instructors, he could open more schools, enroll more students, make more money, and gain more power in the Taekwondo community.
Over time, Taekwondo became know as a children’s sport that helped build confidence and character in children without the aggressive behavior and injures of other sports. As the Whos lived in peace and ignorant bliss, the Taekwondo warrior became a relict of the past and was frowned upon.
