As I progressed in my journey, I learned patience by being given opportunities where it was needed. Even during the car ride home from my test, earning my black belt remained my goal. As my yellow and orange belts came, I thought it was getting more interesting and started learning my definitions. No matter how much physical strength a person has, they are weak if their spirit is sick. If we made one small mistake, she would either hit us or tell us we get no lunch to eat. I too have a gift. Instructing the students really helped me correct my own mistakes in technique and forms.
Another reason is because of the enthusiasm of the instructors. Well this is the best part because I get to help those coming up the ranks with their forms, movements, definitions, and techniques. In addition to gaining more knowledge about the movements themselves, being a Taekwondo instructor has also taught me important communication and teaching skills. Learning the history is important to really understand the art of this style of self defense. I felt, and feel, that I must train harder than most to make the same gains in training. If I receive the rank of black belt, one of my many goals will have been accomplished. Knock has always believed in me when I did not have the faith in myself.
As they go through the ranks, it is amazing to see the transformations that take place. I felt like I had failed her and all the other instructors who had worked with me since I was ten. Then, when I was an orange belt I had to quit. After about three months of watching and getting to know the students, I realized that none of them would be who they were without TaeKwonDo, and maybe it would change me as well, so I joined. The first class I took here, I was feeling pretty scared and nervous. Fun is the reason that most people do Tae Kwon Do and stay with it.
The Chief Instructor is ranked 5th Dan Master and is supported by a group of Black Belts who are dedicated to helping each student find their personal best selves. Should I give up and let everything, my hard work go to waste, or actually stand up for myself. Success in showing that I have remained committed to my Soo Bahk Do training and will continue to better my life through the concepts and values that the Soo Bahk Do classes provide me. One of the most important things I have learned about leadership is to be confident. When one writes these papers, they can be an intimate exercise in self-examination or an extensive outreach that pushes the boundaries of what you think you know about the martial arts. Look for a second person to read out your black belt essay for you.
As I teach I continually notice more and more intricate details of the art of Taekwondo. I believe the long road will make the destination that much more rewarding. What I have learned since getting my Junior Black Belt is that it takes energy, dedication and practice to be successful at karate. Just a demonstration that the thought has gone into it. After college I hope to be a professional chef. For me, it was a relatively easy transition. .
As a dedicated athlete during my younger years, I was programmed to achieve and continue to strive to be better. I appreciate every belt level that I have accomplished and believe each step toward my black belt has been full of valuable lessons in life. During this time I was able to do a good flying sidekick. I have enjoyed learning the Korean terminology for movements executed in the dojang, and I am currently having fun with learning the basics of the written language. I don't care how many people I go against or how my bruises I will end up. As a young adult, I lost my way. It is now my turn to give back, and to pay it forward by helping others the way I have been helped.
Tae Kwon Do has also given me a place to take a break from the pressures of life. She makes the class fun by always changing exercises so that they don't get boring. Does it make you closer to Mushin? So everyday I try to convince my mom over and over until she said yes. One day I will achieve this goal and finish this through. This is about thirty minutes away from the Medford Amerikick studio.
That was the first of several incidents at the hands of not one, but two bullies. I feel thankful for my dad. Also I will be expected to be at class on time, not goof off and be respectful to everyone. I was only half listening to what they were saying, and even now I can only remember bits and pieces of what they told me. At Tae Kwon Do fun is one of the reasons that people join. It offers me a constant challenge to focus on.
