    Hi,

    I've heard some MA schools have a special program or system including leadership training and/or homework.

    My school doesn't have something like that, so I was looking for a website. Specifically homework or written assignments. Not physical ones like, "do 10 slow side kick, 10 fast side kicks, first against a wall, then away from it." I can come up with that kind of homework just thinking of what is done in classes.

    So far the closest thing I've found is this: http://www.maichampions.com/homework.html
    I was hoping for something a little less kid-ish. I'm a strange person, I guess, wanting assignments. :)

    Thanks

    You're not strange at all -- but homework assignments aren't how you learn or cultivate leadership or maturity. It's a matter of daily practice and habits. It's making the tough calls, and doing it habitually, 'til it's automatic. You might try some of the ideas HERE as a starting point. Look for opportunities to be a leader; volunteer. Be willing to step up and go first. Especially when you're uncomfortable. Do the right thing -- even if everyone else isn't.

    What attributes are you actually wanting to learn or cultivate?

    I shadow/assist tkd classes at my school 3 days/week. The owner is wanting to get me to black belt so he has a female teacher, and the newest instructor is wanting to double promote me which would put me one step from black belt and teaching. I'd like to be a solid one when I get there. In both technique and character. Either way I may get there sometime this year. I'm not sure what specifically I need to cultivate. Anything that helps handle kid students and parents, professionalism details (like any pitfalls and such working in a MA school).

    I know I need to work on some habits. Procrastination is the top one right now (it is really bad as far as getting myself to go to BED at a decent hour and leaving the house on time, so of course it's probably crept into other areas, but these seem the keys to breaking it - as well as being majorly disruptive to me). I have some confidence issues, although shadowing these past 3.5 months has helped. Still not comfortable with large groups of unfamiliar people. My school rents the space for some events, so I help set up and I'm usually there when people arrive. I think I should be greeting them and making small talk? Funny something so simple is so difficult for me.

    I'm sure there are also things about my taekwondo that I should know in case someone asks. I've got to sign out now, so that's all the response I have right now.123
