When you think of excellence, what makes it excellent? Sometimes it is a look, while other times it could be a taste. I strongly feel that excellence is not stumbled upon.

Many of us have learned along the way the importance of the ancient secret Tang Soo Do method of practice. It takes discipline to consistently attend class, but it takes understanding to delve into the wonderful world of practice.As you know, it takes many years to master a skill. To avoid becoming overwhelmed, let’s start with a few minutes of focused practice. Make time for 10-15 minutes of focused practice time with specific things you want to improve.
