My Living Heroes by Michael L.

My  Living Heroes.

  1. 3820638129?profile=original My first living hero is KSN Ulityonok. He is my hero because he was and is a very respectful man. Another reason why he is my hero because he trained me harder than I imagine and many life skills.
  2. One hero I’m also ever grateful for is Forest because I followed his leadership and gained access to many other skills. My second reason I chose Forest is he was a true friend not like a friend who just leaves you hanging.
  3. Another hero who is my family is my brother George. The reas

My Weekly Push for 2nd Dan- Eric Sams


This week was a goocollectors_splits.jpg?width=493d one for me.  I feel that I am making progress toward being a teacher of martial arts and a leader. I still have a ways to go, but I am confident that I am on the path.

My fitness is still not where I would like. It is not horrible, but its in need of improvement, as well as my flexibility. I still long to do the splits, but not sure I will get there.  But I will keep working at it. Upper body strength needs work. More pushups!! I foresee lots of pushups in class in the futur

Don't Fear the Test

   3820637199?profile=original  So over my time practicing Marttial Arts I've known a few people to get really stressed about belt tests.  Myself included.  Understandably so, it's stressful.  Of course you want to make progress and be rewarded for it, but then there's always the doubting voice in the back of your head. 

    There are numerous ways to cope with stressors, too many to talk about here.  Some people shout, some cry, some bottle it all up, some run, some fall, some people stand up and take it head on.  No matt

My weekly push for 2nd Dan.

Hello again. This was a tough week for me, I worked late three days and I lost my aunt Sebing yesterday. I was only able to make one class this week, but what a class! We got worked! I love it! When I can barely stand at the end of a class I know it has been a good one. I would like more of those please.

 To everyone, keep working hard and you will get where you what to go. 

 I am as motivated as ever. See you in class.

Overcoming setbacks

persistence_of_a_dream.jpgIn life there are always things that will challenge you to reach your goals. They come in may ways. I will let you know a few of mine.

As a few of you know Eric (CKN Sams) and I started TKD with Master Wells 6 1/2 yrs ago. Our goal together was to achieve our black belts. Well, 3 yrs ago I hurt myself during a belt test. I was going for my Brown belt. I did pass my test but it left me injured. I had to have surgery on my knee in the following 3 months. Needless to say, it was hard for me to watch

My weekly push for 2nd Dan.

It was a tough week this week, I was getting into a grove then I got sick and my car broke down. Bummer.

 Other than that I am looking forward to more training and more learning. I will get through this challenge, and continue my journey. It really is about the journey, not the destination. I can hardly wait.
