New Beginnings

One nice thing about academia is that you get lots of new beginnings. At the beginning of each term, you get a new group of students and a new class to teach.

TKD is kind of like that, too. Now that I've passed my last test, I get to work on a new form!

We're now working on Hwa Rang. I like it. In general, the brown belt forms are interesting. This one's particularly cool--it's not symmetrical at all and we get to do lots of new moves--a pressing block to the right diagonal, an X-block that goes into a reverse elbow strike, some scissors blocks.

Tonight seemed like the beginning of a new term, too. Some people returned after being gone for a while. Aimee is back after being gone about 4 or 5 months. Paul is back after his first year on a high school football team. And we had two young people trying out the class and one adult watching!
