Mat Chat - June 2014

A brief Mat Chat for June.

May was such a massive month, and June is shaping up to be much the same.

Separate newsletters will go out regarding Tigers Term 3 so we don't overload everyone with emails.

Seminars with Master Angus

Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th May was a massive weekend at Hapkido Canberra with Master Angus, from Warrior Hapkido on the Gold Coast, conducting 2 massive days of Self Defence, Sparring, Ground Flow and Kumdo (Sword).

Everyone had such a great time that we have already booked the next Seminar for Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th September.

Mat Chat thought

Hapkido has such a depth of technique and principals to explore - it's honest to say that there is more than a single lifetime of learning.

SaBomNim Tom will admit that he has only scratched the surface when it comes to his training, and the Seminar with Master Angus was enough to remind him.

We would ask that people don't feel rushed to reach Black Belt, sure strive to learn new techniques AND also try to ensure you learn to understand the techniques you have already learnt.

SaBomNim has a goal for you all to be better martial artists than him, to be better people and to know that there is greater strength in walking away than to demonstrate your ability.
