As they say in Taekwondo:
Achieving your first grade black belt means you are finally ready to start your ‘real’ training.
You have survived the basics.
And now the actual work begins.
I love that.
Let’s do dis.
I am looking forward already enormously to continuing our training.
The lessons will go even deeper, and we will soon get to work on practising our first black belt-grade form, Koryo Poomsae.
Also, we will get to wear our ‘saved for this moment’ (black belt approved) Taekwondo doboks from now on in class – these training outfits have been patiently waiting for us for over 3 years.
And you? What is it you are excited about learning/studying/practising in the coming months?
