day 1066 – annual award

image

another busy season of taekwondo comes to an end with the passing of canada cup. through this season, i have found much success further developing my own competition game as well as training my students. it hasn’t been easy at all, there has been lots of struggles and self doubts along the way, but i got the job done at the end of the day. here’s to another grand champion trophy to add to my collection. i don’t know how many more competitions i have in me; i am hoping won’t end just yet

day 701 – oh canada

image

canada day was exactly opposite of how a statutory holiday should be like; not only am i at work but i even worked overtime. it was a long and exhausting day with no shortage of frustrations and surprises throughout. so much effort, time, preparation, sweat and anger has been put in order to make this inter school competition possible, not only on the front end but also on the back end behind the scenes. on the bright side, today i got to see all my students put forth their efforts , many of which made great improvements. but man, was i ever tired at the end of the day and not many ounces of energy left in me

day 657 – my work of art

image

once again proving myself multifaceted with another volunteer gig. the things i volunteer to do for people in my spare time that happens behind the scenes often goes unnoticed, but i don’t mind as long as it is appreciated and respected. sometimes even i am impressed with the amount of things i take on within 24 hours a day. quickly whipped up this poster design and sent it over to the print shop

day 336 – post competition

top pick for competition action picture is our team taebaek during the opening ceremony demo. pretty good and synchronized considering we winged it without much practice, that’s when you know we are a team. still ways to go to match my once best kick but pleased for someone who’s been struggling to walk in recent weeks and literally kicking for the first time in over a month. glad to know i still got it in me

day 335 – annual canada day special

image

so much time of june has been put into preparing and coordinating for this taekwondo competition and annual awards on canada day. the long stressful days of rehab, practices, design work and meetings all contributed to my busy and sleep deprived schedule. after countless hours spent preparing the nitty gritty details, the big day has finally arrived. the venue is setup and ready to go as of last night, but not sure if my legs are. hopeful it will run smoothly with as little surprises as possible
