PICTURES FROM YESTERDAY’S COMMUNITY LIVING GRADING

Good Morning

As you may or may not know, Sir Jeff Morrow teaches our Special Community Living Taekwondo class for West Northumberland Community Living. Mr. Morrow teaches their class here at Cobourg Tae Kwon Do twice a month. At the end of each yearly season we test them for their next rank. Below are some of the pictures from their grading. Also Mr. Morrow gets some occasional help from Joanne Hall and Ryan Donnelly, two of our black belts here. They are a big help to Mr. Morrow. Sir Jeff’s guys do a wonderful job when they are training with him. They want to better themselves and Jeff makes it super fun for them as well.

VIDEOS OF SOME OF THE INSTRUCTORS I GET TO WORK WITH

Good Morning

Here is some videos of some of the instructors and world champions I get to work with and compete against over  the past 11 years since I bought Cobourg Tae Kwon Do. I would have to say that our students are lucky to have these people influence their training. This is just a partial list.

SELF DEFENSE CLINIC ON WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 20TH

Good Morning

On Wednesday November 20th Master Gayle Richards and Sir Jeff Morrow from our dojang went to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Cobourg and taught an one hour self defense seminar/clinic to a small group of teen girls. They volunteered their time to help show these girls some basic self defense techniques as well as to educate them on the mental side of self defense. The group was very pleased and are thinking of doing another self defense clinic in the spring time. Master Gayle helps teaches at the dojang on Wednesday nights and SIr Jeff teaches our Special Needs Adult Taekwondo classes. They both also volunteer their time to help teach the odd self defense seminar.

Thanks guys!

Special Needs Class Dec 2012

Good Morning everyone

Here’s a video of one of our instructors Jeff Morrow teaching our special needs adult Taekwondo class on Wednesday Dec 12, 2012. Jeff does a fantastic job with this group. Really encourages them to work hard and do their own personal best. A hidden or not so hidden message in all of this is you should always try your best and enver ever compare yourself to others. Compare yourself from where you were and where you end up. See the progress you have made. Everyone has something that they are extremely good at and so do you. Never be jealous of someone else’s talents has you have talents they do not have.

Local Newspaper Stops By / Zen Saying

Good Morning Everyone

Hope everyone has been having a good week so far. I know I have. Every day is an opportunity for YOU to create a good day.

newspaper-clip-art-7Anyway Paul Rellinger, the sports writer for The Northumberland News stop by yesterday and did a nice interview with Jeff Morrow, one of our 2nd Degree Black Belts and the instructor for our special needs class, and Mike who is one of our students who will be going for Orange Belt in June, as well as myself(Master Jonathan). Mr. Rellinger arrived early and first asked myself some questions about the class and why we started it. He then interviewed Jennie, the coordinator of the program while Mike and Jeff had their photos taken by the photographer Karen. She had them doing some kicks on the paddles and doing some poses. After that Mr. Rellinger interviewed Mike and Jeff. Mr. Rellinger and I corresponded through email this week and got some of the background information ahead of time. He did his homework before he came in. That is always important to me.

It was a nice experience for our student and I look forward to reading the article when it comes out in the Northumberland News so keep your eyes open for it.

Here’s a ZEN saying that will make you think.  “In walking, just walk. In sitting, just sit. Above all, don’t wobble.”

Have a great weekend
