Have you worn your Taekwondo White Belt recently?
Deb put a dent in her learning the other day.
'I was working with a junior grade on hook kick. Nothing tricky just a front leg hook.
I did my 20 kicks on each leg. Got a decent sound on the target. Thought I was doing OK. And then it was my partners turn.
Bam! Her kicks were awesome! They were higher and more powerful than mine and her overall technique was far superior. I gave myself such a hard time!
The negative thoughts came thick and fast. "You're so useless! You're a higher grade you should be able to do better. She's a lower belt than you for goodness sake!"'
