Special Training

Even though we had to leave early special training for me yesterday was great. I really appreciated it when KJN talked about not doing the exercises that you know you shouldn't do. In my first degree test I wanted to be able to do everything everyone else did. As I am getting older I realize I really don't want to get hurt. And that means I have to make some changes to some of the exercises. It took me a long time to figure out that it doesn't make me less of a black belt if I am not able to do some of what the younger testers can do. I have to make those adjustments in order to avoid injury and to set an example for others. So if you see me making those changes I appreciate your energy and support.
