Quantum Kicking

This week’s TaeKwonDo epiphany is brought to you by quantum mechanics. Not kicking quantums – that is something that intrinsically happens. We’re always kicking quantums. Anyway. Yesterday, as I was struggling with a turning kick in Taekwondo, our Teacher made the remark that I will have to let go of trying to check what my… Read More Quantum Kicking

Mending for Strength

Strength training (or any training) is, in a way, like mending clothes. Or mending Taekwondo Doboks, in today’s instance. Things become stronger where they are repaired.
