This Week’s Training
This week I want to work on line drills moving up and down the floor demonstrating various techniques. The goal is the feel the weight and movement of your body creating the most power with the most efficient use of energy possible. I also want to add to our form set; we have been working on Sae Kye Hyung Il Bu. I would like to add Sae Kye Hyung E Bu – note the minor differences. I would also like to see every one demonstrate their first two one steps in Hands, Kicking, and Grabbing.

Meditation for the Week
Indomitable Spirit: Indomitable spirit is a hard tenet to grasp. From this tenet comes the strength to not just persevere, but to rise above one’s Self. American revolutionary Thomas Paine describe the indomitable spirit as “the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. It is the business of littleminds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles to death.” Don’t Quit! Press on to the greater goal. Run the race laid before you with honor. “Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone [even the rude], and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians 6:9–10)
