Sparring Drills Are A Vital Part Of The Learning Experience In Taekwondo.

My instructor was lecturing me about the importance of our Taekwondo sparring drills. I enjoyed the drills just as much as everyone else in the dojo, but I was not sure where my instructor was going with this particular lecture.

I always enjoyed listening to her lectures, especially when she was speaking to only me. She continued to tell me about her first competition and how she felt a little anxious about how the competition would go. She was nervous because she was …

Some Snowboarding Trick Fundamentals

I like the floating feeling you get on quarterpipes, it feels like you’re hanging in the air and you can with no trouble grab anywhere on the board.

Admiration Of A Better Player Is A Good Thing

I like to think we all seemed to have our heroes and greats in our early years. Growing up in front of a television had us dashing around with a sword or packing a six-shooter at our side. Depending on what we were watching at the time, whether it was in front of a television or out on some field watching a football game. We all seemed to mimic someone at one time or another.
