Making good progress on the assistant instructor course at Soryong Korean Martial Arts
We recently reflected on the 5 tenets of Taekwondo, my audio thoughts below
This week was the start of my assistant instructor training at Soryong Korean Martial Arts in Cardiff. Below is my first thoughts on it after the introduction session;
DoJoTV posed these questions to members of the Welsh Karate Union recently. Their responses can be heard here
I'll be recording my take on this shortly!
What would your answers be?
Following on from my last post, below is Part 1 of a series created from interviews with Cardiff University conference attendees by DoJoTV. I had the bonus of some extra time talking with Lady Sensei of New York City!
If the video does not show below, the direct link is at the bottom of this post :)
I managed to get to some of the conference talks and listened in to some of the filmed conversations with DoJoTV this week at the Martial Arts Studies conference in Cardiff, UK. I was the youngest person there by 10+ years I think, but I still found it inspiring and interesting. Although it was mainly aimed at academics, I still found myself nodding or shaking my head at the speakers and met some amazing adults who are as bonkers about martial arts as me!
Look out for the films on DoJoTV soon - www.dojotv.co.uk
DoJoTV have launched a new project called "DoJoConnect" - see http://www.dojotv.co.uk/dojoconnect.html
If you run a club or provide independent / private instruction, you can get a free profile video as part of the build up of DoJoConnect.
If you're able to get to Cardiff over the next few months, book in :)
Sometimes you need to train in something else to make you a better martial artist. I do like a bit of a box - as do my friends at Soryong!
