A Way

“A Way” in My Life

It is funny how sometimes we need other people to remind us of our beliefs. Oneonta Taekwon-Do recently put on an excellent seminar. My Taekwon-Do instructor Mr. Raymond Mannion, 2nd Dan brought up an excellent point in which he learned from his instructor Grandmaster Suk Jun Kim, 9th Dan. That Taekwon-Do is “a way” of thinking and living – it is not “the way”. Meaning there is more than “one way” in given areas of life. I believed in this principle before this seminar, but sometimes we need reminders to apply this principle to all areas of our lives, and for this, I am grateful.

1,016 Steps To Go

~ 1,016 Steps To Go ~

“The Way” in My Life

#2

This writing is a continuation of my article “Reappearance of the Do” that I posted on 06/12/08.

Although I am proud of what I have accomplished in the very short time that I have been practicing Taekwon-Do, I have barely “scratched the surface” of learning “The Way”. I have been practicing this martial art for months not years or decades. My original exposure to Taekwon-Do twenty years earlier was even shorter, but it made a lasting impact on me. I am now fortunate to be learning “The Way”.

My long term goal in Taekwon-do is to learn, practice, live, and excel at “The Way” for twenty years. And if a week of my Taekwon-Do practice is a step, I have taken 24 steps, and I have 1,016 steps to go. The only possible way for me to achieve this huge goal is to learn, practice, and live, “The Way” one step at a time.
