day 2248 – noodles night

after a long taekwondo teaching shift, went out to have noodles with parents. it’s been a real busy and stressful term, sometimes i think the grandmaster is testing me and not my students given the scenarios i’m put in. i struggle to have set teaching staff all term. some students were preparing for tomorrow’s promotion test and some are training for master cup. it’ll be longer shifts for the next couple weeks until competition day

day 1879 – teaching shifts

two teaching shifts after lots of jamming isn’t ideal. not the best day of teaching at taekwondo having to deal with a number of difficult students. the first hour had a handful of uncooperative students while managing a class of thirty two very beginner class. one kid wouldn’t follow instructions, one wouldn’t stop complaining, and one wouldn’t move and kept crying. i couldn’t attend to at the same time, but i did the best i could out of the gongshow situation. survived the day on two peanut butter toasts and a sore throat
