Thank you all for your flexibility last week when I had to cancel class at the last minute. I had a Soldier who was in a training accident. He was admitted to Scott and White, but he was released that same night. The injuries could have been much worse. I praise God that he will be fine and back to work on Monday.
I am looking forward to another great week. Invite your friends and come back.
1800-1830: School age kids class (5-10 year old)
1830-1930: All Students ages 10 years to Adult.
This week we continue to focus on foundational concepts including basic stances, blocks, punches, and kicks. We will look at applications of those techniques in the Hyungs (forms), Il Soo Sik (one-steps), and Won-Hyong Dae-Ryun (circular sparing). Please take time to explore our loaded resource page.
Concentration – a lot of attention and thought directed to an activity or subject. This week’s meditation is concentration. In Tang Soo Do, it takes a great deal of concentration or focus to practice consistently, to try your best on every technique, and to receive correction. To be an expert in Tang Soo Do, you have to be able to concentrate keeping constant awareness of every tiny muscle in your body.
The godly life also takes consistent concentration in every facet of your life to glorify God. Deuteronomy 6 tells us how we practice this type of concentration.
4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. (Deuteronomy 6:4–7)
