My life for the past year has been like a roller coaster ride, full of ups and downs. There have been lots of lessons learned: financial, work, health, you name it.
Lately, I've been helping a good friend by working in the kitchen of her school and have been very humbled. My 'diabetes' is doing excellent. The relationships I have with family and friends are going very well. I have a renewed love for the martial arts and hope that one day I will be able to become an assistant teacher like I used to be.
With the upcoming school year approaching, I thought I would do a story or two on dojo/dojang etiquette. Something very simple for beginners. I will follow these articles with stories on what it means to be a "martial artist": the tenets and why they are so very important, not only in our training, but in our daily lives as well.
Last, but never least, please pray and give thanks to our men and women of the U.S. armed forces. They continually have a tough job and need our support.
