Part of being a great leader is being a great example.  It’s not just about barking orders to get the job done.  My encouragement is for everyone to use their influence to improve others. Whether this comes in the form of being in class, practicing our skills or simply commanding more of ourselves.  What can we do this week to set a better example for the present and future generations of Tang Soo Do?

What would you like to Improve this week?  Are you wanting to improve a relationship, situation or skill?  I want to encourage everyone to zero in on what they want to improve and go for it.  Nothing feels better than making improvements on areas of our life that we know that we need to improve.  If you are tired of the results that you have been receiving, it’s time to make changes for improvement.  Good Luck with your personal improvement projects.  YOU are worth it!

When I first read about this idea in a Chuck Norris book, it was kind of confusing.  It makes perfect sense, when you apply this idea to learning a new technique, form, etc.  Slow down to help you understand.  Before long, you will understand and become more confident. So the next time you are struggling with (fill in the blank), Slow Down To Go Faster.

In Tang Soo Do, we have three Principles.  The first principle happens to be our word of the week – Responsibility.   A big part of our training is to develop responsibility for our actions.  As we become stronger physically, we need to become more responsible.  This week, I want to encourage everyone to dig deep and think about how we can become more Responsible.  What does this mean for you and me?

The No Excuses policy was presented to me by my retired Navy friend, Mr. Rich.  He shared this concept with me awhile back and quite honestly I just love it.  Instead of coming up with an excuse to why we haven’t done something, we hold ourselves accountable.  Don’t we need more of that in our lives? Let’s get moving PTSDA Karate.  No Excuses.  TANG SOO!!!

Nothing beats the feeling of being productive. You know what I’m talking about. It’s the end of the day, and you think back to all that you had accomplished that day. It’s a fantastic feeling. We have all experienced the other side of the spectrum. You were busy all day, but didn’t feel like you were productive at all. This week, we will give daily tips on how we can be more productive with our time. As we all know, productivity is something that can be accomplished when we have a plan. Let’s plan to be productive toward our goals  [ Read More ]

We recently made a small adjustment to our current Traditional Class Schedule.  This adjustment will allow us to concentrate our efforts with teaching our Beginner Students (White & Yellow Belts).  In addition, we feel the adjustment will challenge our Intermediate Students (Orange Belts) by allowing them to move up to work with the Green – Master Level. Our Tiny Tigers, Black Belt & Master Class, Teen/Adult, Morning & Weekend Class schedule will stay the same.  Let’s take a look. Beginner Students (White & Yellow Belts ONLY) Monday & Wednesday (5-5:50pm) Tuesday & Thursday (6-6:50pm) Intermediate – Advanced Class (Orange –  [ Read More ]
