Good afternoon, all.
It's been a very good week of training! Several are preparing for our Region 6 Tournament on September 22nd and most everyone is focused.
Our lesson is preparing with purpose. Everyone should be practicing at home, a little bit at a time, to do their best. For both the tournament and a rank exam coming up.
Tournament signup is open until September 7th. When signed up, "Reply" this email to let me know.
It's finally here! LMAC has three students and their families making the trip to Greensboro, NC for some excellent competition and camraderie. I leave Tuesday early afternoon to head up and spend the next few days helping set up the hospitality suite, and greeting and meeting visitors, in the tournament hotel. I'll also spend some time brushing up on the referee manual for judging.
Everything else is optional :)
COMPETITORS: If possible, please video your martial artist's competition for me to review. You won't be allowed on the floor, but with a camera and tripod if you have it you can get good quality from outside the competition area.
Always remember, show up to do your best. If you've properly prepared (translate: did what I suggested you do) you will walk off the floor with your head held high, win or lose.
If you didn't do what I asked...
Tournaments are won and lost in practice. Find joy in the practice.
Competitors and families, I'll see you in Greensboro!
We had a nice week of training this last week! This is a good ramp-up to preparing for the World Championship for a few, and the Fall Region 6 Tournament for a few more. Even if you (or your child) isn't participating in an event, your energy is needed to build up those who are. Those who will be getting anxious for the competition.
Deadlines are fast approaching for summer events. Below are links to the two big ones. If you're going get signed up.
Speaking of summer, the class days and times remain the same.
Reminder: no class this week.
Everyone, have a safe Spring Break holiday.
Our Personal Journey. We spend our time living it, but how do we "find" it? How is the best way to follow it?
Well, it's in the practice. Find joy in the practice; everything else pretty much takes care of itself. (I'm still trying to teach this to my own kids.)
