As a child, I loved the muppets character Animal. He was wild and played the drums with such vigor. Trying to follow in his foot steps, I begged my parents to play the drums.

They shattered my dreams by signing me up to learn the trumpet. Major bummer. I reluctantly played the trumpet and through time started to make progress.

The progress that I experienced was directly linked to my quality practice time. I’ll never forget the great feeling of starting to connect the dots.

In Tang Soo Do, you come to class and receive instruction. Most students will stop here. Take the next step and practice at home the lessons learned in the dojang. Motivation will naturally build as we progress ourselves forward.

In closing, don’t practice until you get it right. Practice until you can’t get it wrong. Best wishes in improving yourself through quality practice.
