day 1902 – cabinet vision

day one of a three day training on cabinet. vision. the expectation was to have a full day going through dry material while being trapped in a windowless room for eight hours. that wasn’t the case and it turned out way more interesting than expected. i was originally suppose to travel to ontario for this training, but instead, manager and coo was in support and brought in a presenter. company paid training and catered lunch from chopped leaf doesn’t sound too shabby

day 1292 – korean seminar 

today was a lot of learning from taekwondo to skating. i have a great learning opportunity to attend a seminar held by korean national team coach. the only hurdle is the grandmaster speaks and writes in korean. he has a wealth of knowledge to share; his teaching and training style is very different than the norm. although some of it is very deep and philosophical, it gives me a much better idea of how poomsae should be practice. i jetted immediately after to join the intermediate power skating class. the class is much faster paced; we did things i’ve never done before, but i was told i learn quickly

day 1116 – marbles

it was scary enough to be picked on to do my poomsae in front of a crowd but even scarier to show during the seminar under the scrutiny of canadian national head coach and an international referee. after day one of poomsae seminar, the crew and i relaxed with dinner and bubble tea before some fun and games. obviously i had to show my prowess and win the marble game

after taking care of the competition side of things with id pickup and weigh ins, the rest of the day was spent driving around town. montreal’s chinatown was very impressive, it was very clean with many eating options and street vendors that almost reminded me of china. we made our way to chinatown to satisfy our ramen and bubble tea craving. a red eye flight made me so tired, i was dozing off in the car starting mid day. calling it an early night cause it felt like i haven’t slept for two days
