Belt Testing Tonight, November, 2008

by Terry 11/14/2008 3:53:00 PM

Tonight is another DMW Martial Arts belt test. For me this is another credit-test with no new belt issued. I just go and do my best and say thanks for the workout. I am not eligible for my 2nd degree until March, 2010, nevertheless I keep practicing and working and learning.

I did a 45 minute workout this afternoon to loosen my body for the day. I would have otherwise been sitting at my desk for eight or nine consecutive hours. Sitting all day and then jumping into a two hour workout is never a brilliant plan. I have had injuries to prove that enough. My workout today consisted of stretching and practicing forms (called poomse in Tae Kwon Do).

I also made an effort to work through some of the weapons forms I know; Nun chuck, Kama and Bo staff. I used to know a form with the Sai (http://www.tkdtutor.com/16Weapons/Offensive/Sai/Sai01.htm), but I have managed to forget enough of the Sai form that I do not try anymore. As a result of this, I have made one of my personal goals, in working towards my next black belt, to maintain or improve the proficiency with the weapons I have started to learn so far. This will help with the requirements I need to meet for my 2nd degree. I will get serious with the planning in January. For now I just try not to lose what I have. It is not exactly like riding bike.
