Effects

Greetings fellow…fellow…fellow…tea ceremony-waiters? It’s just not the same as saying fellow cyclers. I’m not running into the dojang or the house anymore because I forgot my book, or journaling daily, or in the backyard practicing poomsaes. It just feels weird, like there’s a unfillable void that I have no power over. I miss assisting with class (wait, I still do that), or going through hapkido 4 & 5 thousands of times with my mentor, or hearing the protests of my mentee after telling him his Pal Chang needs work. There are some effects to the ending of the black belt cycle. Am I missing it? Who would have thought? Anyway, I just wanted to say that everyone did great during testing and it’s amazing how much we all persevered; so pat yourself on the back! And I also want to thank all the instructors and especially the masters for leading the...

3/24 Journal

I haven't done a journal since I hit 50 so I decided to just do one now. The spring 24 cycle is finally over, im so proud of myself, my friends and everyone else who made it through testing, it was a difficult night and having to do it again in the morning was even tougher, I am so grateful that I got to do the cycle alongside so many amazing people. I'd first like to thank my parents for pushing me to do this and getting through it, I would also like to thank Master Foster and Master Knight for helping me prepare for it. It's been a long 3 months but it finally paid off. It felt weird not having to do any requirements and just getting my first day off in a while. I can't wait till the tea ceremony! That's it for today.

Today I was a alright day. But I was scrolling on tiktok and a saw a video of David Goggins  doing his runs and his intense training and it kind of reminded me of the cycle when I saw it, he was saying, "They dont know me son" and "Whos going to carry the boats, and the logs" which gave me motivation to strive harder

Hello! I know I haven’t done an entry in a few days since i’ve hit my 50 journals but i thought it would be good to do one. Today I got picked up early by a really good friend of mine and we went to church together. We also went to lunch at culver’s which if you haven’t gone to you should give it a try. At lunch I came up with the brilliant idea to give him a haircut. His parents said that would be okay and we went to his house and I indeed cut his hair. It looks great by the way and I’m very surprised with myself for doing so because i’ve never once cut anyone’s hair.  I did get some help from his mom but I did some too. When I got home It was weird not having to do any requirements or any class even...

My Thankfulness to my instructors

I would like to say thank you to all the people that helped me during the cycle. I would like to say thank you to master Natasha as my mentor and getting my curriculum straight for the cycle, And Master Chelly and Master Marcus for all the constructive criticism they gave me that helped me get my work up. I also want to thank Grand Master Evins for the privilege to be on the cycle. Lastly I would like to thank Master Foster and Master Knight for letting the cyclists do the testing at their school. Then I would like to thank my dad and my little brother Johnathan for cheering for me in the background, and I'm sorry that my mom couldn't be there to watch me break my brick for the second time.

So. So this is it. The end of my - and all of yours - spring 2024 black belt cycle. But at every ending journey, another adventure starts. Look forward to these next months or years of your nth degree black belt. This black belt cycle was a blast! I learned so much and learned with so many people, it’s amazing how 11 weeks of determination had such an impact. I’m more open minded which is a great character trait to have. Next black belt cycle, I’m not looking at the ground and seeing how many requirements I have to do or how much I have to know, I’m looking up at the sky and awaiting the experiences, the people, and the journey. This has been the best 11 weeks of my life and I was honored to share the experience with all of you. I cannot wait to see ya’ll...

It'll come

Hello fellow cyclers. Welcome to journal #number-I-have-no-idea. I have one question I want to ask you guys though. Do you know the difference between type 1 fun and type 2 fun? If you said no, let me explain. Type 1 fun is fun that you have instantly, in the moment. Maybe you're laughing with your friends because someone told a really funny joke or watching a movie or at a birthday party - that kind of stuff. Type 2 fun is fun that doesn't come instantly but gets there eventually. Type 2 fun is fun you have to work for. For example, you know that huge event that is coming up in less than 24 hours? Yea, it's only our black belt testing. That's an example of type 2 fun. During testing we'll feel tired and nervous but when testing is over you'll feel extremely happy and be enjoying that quality...

3/20 - #50!

Fifty journals! That's really cool. I really like the idea of reflecting on my day and writing about it, I think it's made me a lot more relaxed after putting my thoughts down somewhere. I wish I had been more consisten with these journals, but I also think I'm going to continue journaling somewhere! Testing is just about ~2 days away, which is really exciting! I'm so glad I get to be on this cycle, and I hope to make my first Master, the one who believed in me when I didn't believe in myself, Master Gina, proud! Goodluck to everyone!!

Hi King Tiger Family. Well... I finished all my requirements today. Although Nate and I are only auditing, I feel like this cycle has been a great way to get back into the swing of things. Now, I need to maintain until the next cycle where we test. I wish everyone luck on Friday and Saturday. Breathe, Relax, Enjoy the moment, and just show what you worked so hard to do. It is an incredible experience. Take care.

Hello fellow cyclers and welcome to - WE INTERRUPT THIS BROADCAST WITH AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: ONLY 2 DAYS REMAIN BEFORE BLACK BELT TESTING - Oh my goodness! I could have sworn I shut down all interruptions in my device settings earlier… but that’s a problem for another time. Anyway, as I was saying... welcome to another late-night journal! But what that guy was saying is right.  It’s only two days before testing and I can’t sleep although I’m really confident in my stuff and I’m going through everything over and over again while counting down the days. Today was my last class (not counting sparring) before testing. I won’t be able to make it for Thursday 6:00 class. :(  It doesn’t really seem like I can ever get taekwondo-ed out. Not that I want to. Today I assisted with some classes in afterschool and then returned for Master Chelly’s class, which like...

Final Reflection

Good luck to everyone who is testing this weekend. I wish I could attend, but I am working all weekend. I have one more cycle. I made alot of progress in the beginning, and slowed down when I started working. I will continue to train in-between in the cycles. There's a few more things I need to work on/learn. I'm excited for rest of the year.

3/20 Couple more days..

I know I haven't done these in a while but we only have 3 more days till testing so I though I might as well just do one. First off I don't know if everyone gets this enough but even if I don't know you, I'm proud of you. I didn't make it this far last cycle and I'm proud but I'm also just out of words.. I can't believe myself and a bunch of others have mad it and I just want everyone to get a good night rest for the next couple days before you get too tired. I'm out of words right now but I'm really proud.

Today I came to Tae Kwon Do to get a Class Assistance, a mentor session, and a mentee session. My class assistance was fairly straightforward; I helped a few kids during line drills and was not very needed in breakout classes. My mentor session was very productive. My mentee and I worked on Koryo, Hurricane Hooks, and Yellow/High Yellow Self Defense.

Rollar skating

Went running with my dog, he did so well. I reward him with frozen treat. I put a collar around my cat, and the collar had a feather attached to it further away. So my cat kept trying to get the feathers. My cat and dog were entertaining so I worked on stretches and kicks. Rollerskating tonight and practice some jumps, Because we outdoor skates, we have level skating routes from beginner to advance. I went on the advance route tonight, which was very long routes with hills, going up in big hills going down. It’s tough and it’s hard to keep up sometimes because those people are so fast, I was told that actually come to the advanced skate more and I should psych myself out.

3/19 - #49

School was really normal today, nothing super interesting, but taekwondo was fun! I needed two more mentee sessions, so I got to work with a yellow belt and high yellow belt! It was confusing because I believe those two poomsaes are really similar to eachother. After having them do 'minion poomsae' (doing their poomsae on their knees) and 'animal poomsae' (doing their poomsae based on an animal, they chose a cat), my brain was getting tripped over the two. So, I had them work on hopstep kicks. They raced down the mats, which I thought was a good idea until I saw them doing more running down the mat and less kicking down the mat. I challenged them to instead do really good kicks down the mat, and anytime they (purposefully) did a bad kick, whether that be from speed or not trying, they had to do 3 jumping jacks. They...

Dad Habits

Every Dad (yes, Dad should be a proper noun) has at least one of the following character traits: happy, funny, crazy, strong, helpful; amazing, right? (or maybe, like mine, your Dad has them all) It’s all the more helpful to have a Dad. Whether they helped you win the school stand-up comedy competition, which no one participated in, or they correct your blocks in Sa Chang, either way your Dad will always want to be proud of you, which is why he will take any chance to boast about you to anyone around. And maybe you’ll think - ugh, dad’s so annoying! but your Dad does this because he loves you. He wants everyone to know that you aced the test, said something funny or got your 2nd degree black belt. No matter what, he’s proud of you and he wants everyone to know. To all my future Dads, please do this....

I talked with my friends during AP Gov. as I normally do. I then came home and did homework for a while before run club. I then left for run club and talked to my dad in the car about everything going on. I had a lot of fun at run club and got a short, but good workout. Afterwards I talked to Coach Fam and got one of the best pieces of advice I really needed to hear. I then came home, ate, got my uniform ready for tomorrow. Now I am here.

TKD and book talk

Hello fellow cyclists. Welcome to another journal. I want to talk about how excited I am about the upcoming test this weekend. I kid you not, this will be the longest week of my life. Tonight in class we did some preparation for the test. Praneeth and I were the only two testers taking Master Chelly's class. We did some self-defense and poomsaes. All of these classes in the last week have a special feeling to them and it seems like they're talking to me and saying, "these are your last days young bird, use them wisely".  To relax, I started a new book that Instructor Jen recommended to me called "Bridge to Terebithia", which is about a kid and his best friend who make a magical kingdom called Terebithia. That's all I'll say for now. I don't want to ruin it for anyone else who may want to read it...

Burpees

If I wasn’t done with burpees I would be done with them today. I had to do 75 burpees at CrossFit. 30 secs on, 30 secs off until I got to 75. It didn’t take long 5-6mins, but man was it great warm up. I started working with my dog on leash training, he’s 6yr but I never trained him consistently because of school. So we’re working on it now. A lot of it will be me and my consistenty with it. We only been in two walks, but I can already notice the difference. its amazing what 30 mins of work, or a bit of daily effort can make in progress. With his training, or when I work on tkd, or with crafting and roller skating.

I was asleep for a lot of yesterday. When I woke up around 12 I went downstairs to eat, stretch my arms (that still hurt today?!), and helped my dad clean around the house. We also saw a lamborghini while driving around, and I made the joke of crashing into it. My dad was fully against it, jokefully disagreeing because that would be way too expensive. He then laughed and said he should race it in our 2007 Honda Odyssey.

Lost in a maze

Ask yourself, have you ever imagined or even dreamed that you were stuck in a giant labyrinth with only one exit at the very bottom? And the labyrinth is filled to the brim with items designed to destroy your credit cards? Welcome to IKEA! A giant concrete box of Swedish architecture. We went there to get a missing piece to a new dresser for my brother Liam. We walked around in the giant maze that they call the showroom. We explored all the model living rooms and kitchens that are cool to walk through but are absurdly expensive. At one point I stopped to look out into the parking lot through an emergency exit door. It was then that my brother became possessed by who knows what and decided it was a good idea to push me into the door which set off the alarm.  The alarm was blasting through the...

Today I woke up and did some requirements. I then went to church, which as always I volunteered in the kids room. They were little crazy today, but I had assistance from my friends in handling them. I then went to Walmart and bought a new LEGO set. I am excited to build it. I then ate and did a lot of requirements since I was behind. I then ate some more and had a hard conversation over the phone. I then sat in the Normatecs and ate since the conversation lasted a while. I then played Fortnite with my friend Erick. We didn't play well, but we had a lot of fun. Afterwards I read, stretched, and now I am here.

This is a late one, but a summary of my day was: track meet. It wasn't bad, was very hot. I did pretty good. Dealing with a lot right now so being able to just chill and do something I love was amazing. I then came home and got some school work done and now I am here.

Today we had to wake up really early and i didn’t get very good sleep last night because of my foot and having to elevate it. When we got to the track to run the mile the stairs were hard and it was very difficult to watch everyone else run and I couldn’t. when we got back to the school we did our physical requirements that were more difficult but I pushed through and still beat all my scores from last time. I felt good about the written test and got a really good score.
