Why Every Martial Artist Should Compete in Tournaments

 

Since we have another tournament coming up very soon it seemed like a good time to talk about the why we should compete.   Tammy and I have competed in nearly every local and national tournament since we were Green Belts.   Are we some sort of competition junkies or something?  No, not really.  But I can say that one of my most memorable experiences in my martial arts journey, happened at a tournament.  It was a priceless family moment for me that would not have happened, if I were not competing.

Chelsea's TKD Journey!

 

So excited that one of our students took time from her very busy schedule to write down her taekwondo journey to share with others!  So inspiring Chelsea! Thanks so much!  We'd love to hear from others, adult taekwondo students or parents sharing their children's taekwondo stories.  If you've been studying martial arts for any length of time you have a story!  It amazes me the perseverance and inner strength we all build overcoming our own unique challenges.

Why is it so hard to make myself do the right thing?

 

In our kids taekwondo and cubs (pre school) taekwondo classes we teach the meaning of self-control in a fun way, complete with hand motions.  I will make myself (thumbs pointing to ourselves) do the right thing.  (Finger pointing out pumping, like a mom, saying “do the right thing”)  =) But we all know kids don’t always want to do the right thing, because they would rather talk to their neighbors in class than listen to the teacher or would rather wiggle than sit still.  It’s hard to make yourself do the right thing.  But as adults doing the right thing takes on a different meaning.  We want to sit still and Facebook or read or watch TV or what ever rather than getting up and playing.  Playing takes the self-control rather than the sitting still.
