This week we continue work on tournament training. Bring your sparring gear. I have only a limited amount to lend. For Tang Soo Do, we wear Head, hands, and feet foam padding with a mouth guard and athletic cup. I will hand out basic protocol and introduction sheets for presenting yourself at the tournament.

Meditation for the Week
Obedience to Parents – In the code, “Parents” implies father, mother, teachers, elders, and instructors. It is respect for others, esteem, honor, and appreciation. In many ways this is a given, still this is a code that must be retaught regularly because of our inclination to to disobey and do our own thing (also known as sin). God commands us in Exodus 20:12 to “honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.” This is the first of the 10 Commandments with a promise. The Apostle Paul picks up this theme in the letter to the Ephesians telling us to obey our parents because it is the right thing to do (Eph 6:1) and in the letter to Colossae, obedience pleases the Lord (Col 3:20). Adults, don’t dismiss this code believing it only applies to the youth. We have just as much a responsibility to those placed in authority over us. The code is a transferrable principle. Seek to show obedience through your attitude, your personal honor, and a desire to glorify God in your thoughts and actions.
