I Just learned what TaeKwonDo is all about!
It's not about becoming a black belt, or being the best
Its about learning and perfection, becoming at one with the "Do"
I used too look at the black belts and envy them, but why, because they started years before me and worked their butts off...
That's no reason to envy them at all. They were white belts like me once.
Now I have learned, you could stay a white belt for your whole life if you didn't mind, once you perfect your movements and listen to your master, be respectful and be a true TaeKwonDo student, that's all that matters.
At the end of the day, a belt is a colored piece of material around your waist. That's it.
its is a reward, not a goal.
I have learned, the belt is not what you should strive for, if you put in passion the belts will follow.
TaeKwonDo is all about Learning.
I Believe that even when you are a GrandMaster, byou can still learn and perfect the "Do".
The journey of learning never stops.
TaeKwonDo is with you for life but you have to stick with it.
And that is the beauty of it <3Deb's Reply
So glad you've learned all that so early in your journey. This area of the website is the bit I love most - so so many of you give so much to help others learn.
