Happy New Year, my wonderful readers! If you don’t follow me on Instagram (please do @melaniegibsonauthor), you haven’t seen my taekwondo goals for 2020. I wrote these in my office one day in late December and have them posted above my desk.
These aspirations should keep me motivated when I’m getting too mired in conference calls or presentations (and inspire me to get off my ass and move around).
If you can’t read my handwriting, here’s what it says:
-Learn 540 kick…my body finally got the hang of 360, so we’ll see what happens
-Be a badass in sparring (head shots/back kicks)…actually landing them on my sparring partner, not just doing them 🙂
-Roundhouse/360/spin kick—one right after the other
-Jump back kick
-Double flying snap kick
-Simultaneous punch and side kick
No Pae (form) with a board break punch…that’s a thing in this old, rarely practiced form
15 hand-to-hand and weapons self-defense techniques…as of today one of my training partners and I came up with eleven!
And of course…THIRD DAN!
What are your martial arts goals for 2020? Let’s make this a kickass year!
