Soham's Journal Entry #06 2/03/2023

Today I woke up early since I need to attend one puja ceremony at friends place before my office starts. I joined the office 2 hours late because of that, can't avoid. I need to extend the office hours today beyond 6 pm , that too on Friday. But tomorrow morning I don't have Black Belt class, so can relax a little late today. Finally a weekend , hopefully will get some rest and good practice of Poomsaes.

Soham's Journal Entry #05 2/02/2023

Yesterday was another busy weekday . But I managed some time to assist one TKD class before regular Sparring class. Got some practice for 1:1 sparring. Yet to find one Mentee. Muthu didn't responded yet , its 2 weeks now. Also need to get some leadership credits. I was too tired to write the journal.

Soham's Journal Entry #04 2/01/2023

King Tiger Black Belt website was down for few days, that's why not able to write the journals. Completing the pending journals today , since the website is up now. Today was like any other busy weekdays, daily routines and office work. I thought I can assist one TKD class today, but was not able to finish office on time. So directly went for TKD Black Belt class. Today I am little bit disappointed , as not able to perform Korean Poomsae correctly. Need to practice this more.

Jordan's Journal #8 - 1/21/23

Yesterday I didn't have much to do because I was Traveling to Tampa, But I'm still trying to keep up with my requirements so I don't fall behind.  When I got to my hotel we went to hang out with family in the hang out area.  Today I got ready, then we went to get breakfast at the hotel's cafe.  Then I went to the gym to do my requirements.  I also did an exercise in grit on how to track your grit level, and I realized that I was a 9 "I got this" when I was doing burpees.  It was really hard at first and I wanted to quit, but I found a way to push through it.

Today I attended weekday black belt class. It was a lot of fun! Before class I has my first session with my mentor. I learned a lot! In class today, we did kicking drills down the mat, practiced shoulder rolls, and did some self defenses! All in all, I feel like today was a great day!

Today after school, I went to the recreational center's indoor track. I ran/walked two miles. So far, I haven't beaten my personal mile record, but I think I'm getting better. After I ran, I did some of the required exercises for today. I'm excited to push my personal boundaries during our cycle.

I woke up early and went to Black Belt class. I learned some moves for the stick forms. Later today I have to do a blood test but other than that I plan on relaxing.
