Let's try and remember that all of us are here for one reason-our love of taekwondo and our search for knowledge. When I really think about it, it occurs to me that some of my exchanges have been...less than productive towards that goal. I am just as likely, if not more so, to start arguments, so this thread is for my benefit too. Here's to a new year in Taekwondo. Anyway, so this isn't an empty thread... Lately, I've started doing yoga. I did this mainly as rehab on my knee-the place I go to practices in a 105 degree room (roughly 41 celsius) and the heat let me run through the ROM of my knee much easier and safer. I've found this incredibly valuable, as well, as a mental exercise and a psychological reset switch, and it got me thinking. What about using Taekwondo the same way? So lately I've been choosing one poomsae and practicing it three or four times. Always one I know well, so it's less about learning and more about engaging in the practice, and always one I like. Taeguek 7 is out . Pyongwon in particular is my favorite. I do a quick warmup, more to get myself into a Taekwondo mindset than any physical reason, and a quick cool down when I'm done to go back to the day. I tend to get frustrated occasionally and this often gives me a new perspective and a better sense of what's really important. I find I don't always get this while sparring honestly. How about you guys?
