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

taekwondo saturday just got a lot better when i learned that i was invited to train with team canada poomsae coach, master rim. so stoked to be attending this poomsae workshop hosted at north shore taekwondo school. master rim delivered a very informative session; he talked a lot on taekwondo theory and ran through many drills with corrective movements. this gave me a preview of what’s to come during the workshop he will host later this summer
