A FEW ANSWERS FROM YESTERDAY’S BLOG ON WHAT A BLACK BELT MEANS TO YOU?

  • Good Morning

    So yesterday I posted a question of what does a black belt mean to you? I got a few well thought out replies and here are a few of them. All very well written.

    What does a Black Belt mean to me? Well it means that all the committment I put in from the day I started as a White Belt up and until Black Belt grading day. All the hard work and goals I met were definately worth it especially when I was presented with and tied it around my waste. It may me very proud to know I have achieved something not a lot of people have. So in saying that it means a lot to me to become a Black Belt knowing all the hard work I put into the journey was well worth it and showed me I can do whatever I put my mind to.

Without sound too corney………..When I started kick boxing many years ago I would watch the TKD class and always thought it might be fun to try it. So….I tried it, liked it and then I started wondering if were possible to get by black belt one day. I was sure I would never attain that goal. Then………..Voila. For myself it means I achieved a goal and every time I wear it it is with a sense of pride. it also represents a lot of friends made along the way

There is no real correct answer per say unless someone thought it was about all the wrong reasons but for most people this is not the case.

A VIDEO MESSAGE TO THE 2016 BLACK BELT CANDIDATES

One of my martial arts buddies, Tom Callos filmed this video a few years ago and I like to share it every year with the black belt candidates. I hope this inspires them and their training and journey. I hope it also inspires though who will be grading for their black belts in the next few years as well.

(VIDEO) 540 Push Ups Workout In One Day at Cobourg Tae Kwon Do

Good Morning

Here is a video I did a few years ago on Push Ups. Since the 2016 Black Belt Candidates have started their training and are required to do a minimum of 10,000 push ups before their grading I thought I would share this video to give them ideas on different push ups variations. Enjoy!
