At my last grading, I had a parent who's been around Taekwondo in the province for years attending who isn't usually around during classes. She told me afterward, having watched me teach a little bit before the grading and demonstrate a technique for the students, that I reminded her of a certain instructor I had growing up in technique and teaching style. This particular instructor, I consider to be the best all around martial artist I know and he is the instructor I consider probably the most important to my development and the one I looked up to the most, since he was fairly young at the time and easiest for me to identify with. To me, this was very high praise and it made me stop and reflect on a few things. I'd consider it a turning point for sure and to be told that makes me proud of what I've done in Taekwondo. Has anyone else ever been likened to a former instructor of theirs? What'd you think about it? It is a bit of an odd feeling to me but a good one.
