Starting Tae Kwon Do at 50. Are You Nuts? – David Haynes, author

Articles
Water aerobics would make more sense; or maybe even yoga, so why choose one of the “hardest” of hard martial arts, known for its powerful, and sometimes aerial, kicks? The short answer is that it was accidental. My 11-year-old son wanted to give it a try, so I brought him in to Koryo Do School of Tae Kwon Do for a try out class because it was the closest to our house. I took a seat, intending to relax while I watched my son work up a seat. I only got to sit for about five minutes before being invited to join in and learn some simple self-defense moves. I was hooked. Unfortunately, my son discontinued coming after about a year, but I continued. Almost four years and about 1500 hours of…

They Call Me Master

[caption id="attachment_469" align="alignleft" width="300"] taekwondo master testing[/caption] They call me Master, yet as I look at my students I wonder. Some of my students are much faster than me; yet they still call me Master. Many, by far are already more flexible than me and dare I say stronger; yet they still call me Master.  Quite a few could easily beat me in a competition; yet they call me Master.  Their progress executing forms and using weapons is nothing but an expression of art, each one an artist in its own way; yet they call me master. But what is a master may I ask?  I did dare to ask this question to two of my senior students and was pleased with the answer, or the lack of as neither…

[caption id="attachment_752" align="alignleft" width="109"] High School/College graduate[/caption] As we prepare to attend a number of high school graduations and get our children out to college I had to pause based on a mother's comments and her intention to keep her daughter at our school while she was going to college.  This simple comment made me happy but instilled a query on my mind about the facts.  My query turned into research and a great web site I found with the information and source at the bottom of this post. In this particular case I wish more parents will act like her and think about measures to empower their children and give them the tools needed to succeed and be safe.  The impact of this mother's comment and the facts are…

Lose Weight and get in shape

News & Updates
Have you ever considered martial arts as one of your resolutions of the year?  Lots of individuals have incorrect assumption about martial arts such as: I'm too old for that, that stuff is for kids alone and even the I'm afraid I'll get hurt.  However in my book the true martial artist is not the one that hurts others but the one that seeks to improve himself/herself.  So far my adult students have lost weight, gain balance, improve their conditioning and even learn how to defend themselves without having to kick or punch someone. So consider us as your new year's resolution and lets work together at increasing your quality of life.
