day 1903 – continuation of seminar

enjoying my poke bowl for lunch during my second day of this seminar. it’s customized with salmon and tuna sashimi, mango, crab meat, masago, ginger, nori, shoots and topped with spicy sriracha sauce. since we got the basics down yesterday, we’re learning how to build a project and practicing how to setup according to our own preferences. i’ve been pretty intrigued and impressed with what the program can do

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 1516 – level b certified 

nine hours of my sunday spent at st john’s to take my recertification course and now i’m back to saving lives. good old timmy’s to help me get through and stay awake through the boring stuff, just like those university days. the test at the end of the course was easy peasy. i have a feeling there’s more to come in order to complete my nccp, but hopefully the next one won’t be nine hours long

day 1293 – seminar sequel

it was a good two day seminar held by grandmaster lee. i learned a lot of theory and technical things i wouldn’t otherwise have in regular classes. with his in depth explanation and new found knowledge, i now see poomsae in a different light. while i spend my three-day long weekend at taekwondo, i never got any restful time off. my mind wants to sleep but leg cramps are preventing me from sleeping. calling it an early day to get take on another week head on

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 1199 – coaching team

the two grandmasters and the coaching team at yet another grandmaster yoon sport poomsae seminar. it’s great opportunity to pick his brain from his wealth of knowledge; no wonder he’s one of the best coach in california state. a good poomsae refresher for me but a bad headache kept my home in the evening, probably from dehydration or something. i feel fatigued and much discomfort so all i can do is lie down and roll out on my pvc

day 1117 – juvenile delinquents

day two of future camp poomsae and referee seminar held by taekwondo canada. i was busy on the floor rolling my leg until these two naughty kids jumped on me and started treating me like a wrestling dummy. i only found out yesterday that i will be taking the national referee exam today, meaning i read through sixty pages of the manual last night. stayed up way too late last night, but getting nationally certified was worth it
