day 2074 – killarney class

my weekly saturday ritual is all about teaching at killarney and the new civil war season that just started up again. it was a crazy hectic shift. the first class of the term is always busier, but also had to worry about preparing students for the belt test while teaching with two fewer instructors. i enjoy teaching, for that reason, my work week doesn’t end on friday, and sometimes doesn’t even end on sunday. sometimes i could use a weekend off

day 2035 – coaching duties

i went to flipping after work because i have nothing better to do before poomsae training. coaching was a must even on a bad ankle when i could barely walk when untaped. no question i work tirelessly for my students and just want them to improve and be all that they can. though i enjoy teaching and helping the students, these long days are very taxing both physically and mentally. i basically worked seventy thirty to nine with a two hour break. i ended up eating dinner at almost 10pm and was beyond starvation at that point

day 830 – sentimental saturday

teaching has become a staple over the years but suiting up today felt a little different. i go to main branch very often but it must have been at least six months since i last taught regular classes there. it almost feels weird, but suiting up felt strangely good and i don’t know why. sometimes i wonder if i miss teaching at this location instead of just the branch, or if i miss the students i used to teach. i didn’t mind teaching today, i had to be there for poomsae training regardless since it is about time to prepare students for upcoming provincials
