HEAT ADVISORY IN THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES

This is an important message from the City of Los Angeles NotifyLA System

A Heat Advisory for the LA Region will be in effect from 11:00AM Wednesday, April 6, 2022 to 6:00PM PDT Friday, April 8, 2022.

Temperatures could reach 100 degrees in parts of Los Angeles. As temperatures rise, the City of Los Angeles urges Angelenos to prepare for the heat.

Residents and visitors can keep cool by staying in shade or a building with air conditioning and drinking plenty of water. If you do not live in an air-conditioned building, you may take refuge at a library, recreation facility, senior center or other public air-conditioned building. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. Check on neighbors or others who may be sensitive to heat.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. See an explanation of signs and symptoms in the graphic below. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.

Heat stroke is an emergency! Call 911. Non-emergency information can be found by calling 311.

THE PYRAMID OF SUCCESS

Thank you everyone for attending the Color Belt Promotion Test last Saturday. It was refreshing to see all of you.

Thank you as well for taking the time to listen. Please remember that the success of our students is one of our main priorities.

What is success? It is different for each person as we all have unique needs and goals. Success may be getting healthier, improving strength, improving focus, gaining confidence, learning respect, learning self-control, learning self-discipline, earning the next belt rank, earning the Black Belt, winning medals, making friends, and more.

The success that is the most challenging to achieve is practicing and living by ALL the Tenets of Taekwondo - self-confidence, modesty, indomitable spirit, perseverance, and** etiquette**. Put together, they provide balance in a person's life. As everyone knows, balance is elusive for many people and it will take great physical and mental effort to have it.

I presented the infograph found below to some of you. I discovered it at our daughter's back-to-school night. Please allow me to describe it. Like in school, there are 3 main parties involved and everyone has to collaborate, cooperate, and do his/her part.

Parties in a student's martial arts education - the STUDENT, the PARENTS/GUARDIANS, and the INSTRUCTORS.

The student is at the top of the pyramid because she/he is the one whom we wish to learn, grow, and get the benefits of Taekwondo. However, if the student does not actively participate and do her/his responsibilities, success will be hard to come by.

At either corner of the base are the parents/guardians and the instructors. Their role is to support the student in her/his endeavor. If one party does not fulfill its responsiblities, that corner of the base weakens and the entire structure will become unstable. Any environment that lacks stability is detrimental to a person's growth, especially children. The student will find it difficult to succeed.

Think before you share: Back to School Photos

Back to school photos often reveal personal information about your child. School name, grade, age, and identifying features, etc. - these can all be used by predators and scammers.

No matter your privacy setting or friends, it’s best to keep personal information to a minimum.

Have a fun and safe school year!

Looking Back, Coming Back, Giving Back

Last Tuesday, Excel TKD presented its gift to Las Pinas Taekwondo Center (LPTC) and its students. Mrs. Marcelino started the class with yoga and then we tried out the new equipment during class. They worked out great! At the end, we celebrated with some good ol' pizza.

We had bigger plans but circumstances beyond our control prevented us from carrying them out. Nevertheless, the important and critical pieces of our plans were put into place - teaching Master Arnold Baradi new martial arts school management systems, marketing, and retention techniques. Our goal is to help him recover more quickly and efficiently from the pandemic. Like many gyms and fitness facilities in the Philippines, he lost many of his students due to the lockdowns.

Master Baradi, or Kuya Arnold as we call him, is the head instructor of LPTC and a former Philippine national team member. He also served as a coach of the national team and is the first Filipino to win a a gold medal at the Asian Taekwondo Championships. He also won a silver at the World Games.

LPTC has produced many national team members in the Philippines. From its ranks rose Southeast Asian, Asian, and world championshipships medalists. Two Taekwondo Olympians called LPTC home - Master Eva Ditan and Master Roberto Cruz.

Most importantly, LPTC is the home of Mrs. Marcelino and Master Baradi was her instructor. He also trained Mr. Marcelino whenever the national team was not in session. As we always advise our students and athletes, extra training will mean the difference between winning and losing.

Excel TKD is proud to call Las Piñas Taekwondo Center as its sister school in the Philippines. We are grateful for the knowledge, skill, and wisdom that it gave us when we were in the Philippine National Team. We are honored that we have this opportunity to help the community that helped us.

In the Philippines, there's a saying that goes "Hindi ka makakarating sa iyong patutunguhan kung hindi ka marunong lumingon sa iyong pinanggalingan". In English, it means that one cannot reach her destination if she doesn't recognize or acknowledge where she came from. We look back and we give back.

Thank you Master Baradi and LPTC!

Our Story

The focus of our martial arts school is on physical fitness, character development and self defense, rather than fighting.

As soon as you become a martial arts student, you join a community that works together toward improved physical strength and stamina, better focus and concentration, greater self discipline, competency in self defense and, increased self confidence.

For us at Excel Taekwondo Center, the practice of martial arts means respecting each other, encouraging and supporting each other and celebrating each other’s successes.

These values are especially important in working with children and families — the primary focus of our martial arts school.

We have martial arts programs for students of all ages. For children, our emphasis is on character development and physical fitness. With adults, our goal is to deliver all of the benefits of martial arts, including improved muscle tone, increased cardiovascular fitness, lower stress levels, increased energy, and greater flexibility.

Self defense is also emphasized, but it’s always tempered with the training on how to seek alternatives to conflict.

Each of our martial arts instructors is committed to teaching the physical skills while applying attitude-shaping exercises aimed at bringing out the best character and physical potential in each student.
