Advanced and Adult Classes are rocking again Wednesdays

Albany Indoor - Athens Soccer Academy

1--KORYO SA-- a new and free TaeKwonDo gym has begun operations in Albany, Ohio. Follow the link to get directions and facility Ground rules. Lead Instructors are Holly, Peter, and Tad who will rotate. This Friday Tad is on the Hot Seat, last Friday Holly Delong had the Group. Peter Zeisler will host us all for our first October gathering.

Training takes place from 6:30-7:30PM Every Friday, thanks to Mark Groll and Live a New, a business we will learn more about shortly. Don't forget to thank Mark Groll if you see him and learn a bit about the Mission and Core Values of his work.

7:30-8:00PM is for Pre-Black Belts--the program is dedicating this quarter to learning and understanding the First Four Palgwe and next quarter to Palgwe O, Yul, Chil, Pal. Notice these are the same Prefixes as the 8 TaeGeuk set they should already know.

The focus is on getting the pre-Blacks knowledgeable enough to test--they may still need to train more to be "Ready"-- to test if they feel they are ready!

Please message me or reply to all if a ride-share/carpool options interests you.

Directions to Friday Training--

2--Advanced Adult Wednesday--We have a very good group. Tonight we talked about how progressing through the belts should change you both outwardly and inwardly, and we worked together with a partner practicing Attack and Evade, Inhale and Exhale, Inward and Outward Focus.

The calm fist has potential energy. These students are maturing physically and emotionally, and to see them train and successfully assume a more disciplined attitude assures me they will house the greatest Potential Energy as well.

Attaining the Black Belt is like a flash of Kinetic expression.

Then you again assume the role of student....

Finally here is the Facebook and YouTube channel links you should follow...

Hope to see you Friday.

[05/14/15]   Greetings and Happy Thursday. The weekend is within sight...

Here is a quick update about the content we are exploring in Wednesday night TaeKwonDo.

This message will list the 8 criteria for Poomse (Form) refinement we worked on in class.

These are taken from the article at--,-265,65

Knowledge of Poomse
Eye Focus and Precision
Posture and Balance
Breathing and Kihop

With reference to power and timing, we distinguish between a) power derived from force and b) power derived from timing and technique. The proper balance of timing, technique, and focused force will naturally lead to more effective technique.

With reference to Knowledge and Attitude we discussed the philosophical meaning of forms and how they fit into a bigger circle with 8 component parts. These forms have specific proscribed Attitudes; more can be learned at the above link and here--

Secondly, the Korean Flag exhibits four of the eight trigrams from the above cosmology/context. This flag reminds us of the inter relationship between the "physical" and "attitudinal" aspects of our art.

Finally, as my spring soccer season winds down, I am hoping to be able to attend Don's forms class to learn from and to watch his teaching style.

Thanks for supporting your kid, or thanks for studying yourself. These minutes training in this art will last a lifetime in a way very few other experiences can match.
