day 1046 – corporate of champions

image

after a long and stressful day of taekwondo teaching and demo rehearsal, i immediately busted to richmond oval for the corporate of champions tournament. this weekend is lined up with a ton of dodgeball, both reffing and playing. reffing was a little wild as we were really short staffed on refs for the round robins. this is just a preview of what is to come tomorrow

day 639 – can-am demo

image

second year at can-am competition invited to demonstrate as part of the opening ceremony. no change to lots of waiting, standing around and listening to speeches, but what changed is we weren’t second last team in the program. another demo completed, another thing off my plate, and now i can finally focus on training for the┬ácompetition that’s been on my mind for weeks and months. mind you there’s only one week left until the big day and i don’t feel nearly as ready as i should be

day 275 – oval demo

the day of can-am international championship has come. for all of april,  the group has put in so much extra time and energy into preparing for this demo, and definitely pays off with a good performance overall. it was a fun experience at such a grand stage and wish to have more like this in the future. but for now, i am glad its over so i can focus on my competition

it’s what we call dedication when we practiced through a power outage during our final rehearsal for richmond oval demo. it was hot, it was crowded, it was dark but with the help of a few headlights, we pulled it through a two hour rehearsal in darkness. it was quite a fun and amazing experience
