I imagine that once this process ends that this column will stop being weekly and start being occasionally. While Taekwondo is still a big part of my life, the everyday training is not as exciting as the key moments.
The final test, the meeting with Grandmaster is on next Thursday. A little over a week left to go. I am not nervous. I sat through my daughters test and understand what to expect. It is nothing like the five hours of endurance testing that we have already overcome.
Until then I keep practicing. They are teaching us black belt curriculum already. No, the expect us to already know black belt curriculum. These kids who tested with me, who I helped learn all their forms and techniques, are now belting out the black belt curriculum. Then there is me. I was so focused on learning what I needed that I did not bother learning beyond.
Why would I?
We will be studying this poomse for the next two years. I am not in a hurry to devour it. I want to learn it and perfect it.
I miss learning from a Master that is more traditional.
I have been thinking a lot about my weight. I cannot seem to loose it. I have been thinking about a doing a Whole30, but I think the philosophy is a bit extreme. Instead I am working on improving the small aspects of my diet. I am already mostly Paleo already. I plan on starting to reread some more of my health books in the near future.
