The more I learn, the more I realize how much I still have to learn.
Taekwondo is a life long journey.
I have been practicing and studying Taekwondo over half my life and not a day that goes by where I am not learning something new. Whether it is relearning the basics, sharpening up the advanced skills, or figuring out how to teach so that everyone can learn with ease. From relearning the basics over and over again to figuring out how to teach so that everyone can learn easily is a journey that never ends. One in theory might be able to learn all the techniques and skills of Taekwondo but to really know and master it is another story. One must strive to practice to perfection which is a destination that can never be. For it’s the journey not the destination that matters. How you approach and travel along the journey that matters as well. We all have different paths and different reasons for being on the journey. For whatever the reasons are, enjoy the journey and learn as much as you can and strive to really learn it. Don’t be concerned with becoming a Master when you are still a white belt. Focus on becoming a master of practice and training and you will move along the journey nicely.
