Having plants in the dojang is more than just for decoration.  To me it’s a symbol of growth and life.  The bamboo plants are one of my favorites.  They give a daily reminder to be strong but flexible.  With lots of change occurring this week, let’s strive to be flexible in our daily walk.  The flexibility allows us to have more peace of mind.  Peace of mind leads to growth and a happier life.

July 26-29 – Our team went to Washington, D.C. for the ITF World Championship.  Everyone did an amazing job!  We participated in seminars (judges and rank req), awards banquet, competition, demonstrations and testing.  In addition, our team was heavily involved with setting up, conducting and closing down.  Needless to say, everyone is pretty pumped about the experience. A special thank-you to Master Joiner, Kyo Sa Nim Duane, Kyo Sa Nim DuFour, Mr. Fowler, Bryson Harden-Cooke and all our parents for representing our dojang in such a positive way.  BTW – the next ITF World Championship is going to be in  [ Read More ]

I believe we can all agree that we need more kindness in our world. Several years ago, a bumper sticker become rather popular for its message. It read Practice Random Acts of Kindness. I feel like this is a great message for all of us. Let’s make it a daily goal to be kind to ourselves and others around us. Being kind without looking for anything in return brings a special peace and joy. Looking forward to promoting more kindness in this world. Don’t delay…start today!

Have you been in a situation lately that required you to use courage?  As a child, it seemed like it was a weekly deal.  The butterflies would stir in our stomachs as we tried to muster up the courage to jump off the diving board or ride our bike without training wheels.  After a lot of bumps and bruises, we finally reached success. One of the many things that I love about the martial arts is that it constantly pushes us to have more courage.  The list is endless –  breaking boards, doing shoulder rolls, sparring, etc.  By humbling ourselves  [ Read More ]
