Pyung Ahn: Peaceful Confidence
Happy new year for 2018
For those of us who have been relatively sedate since the last class in 2017, now is the time to start moving again. Make the effort to go outside for a run, stretch or get back to the gym this week to lessen the shock on the body after the first class back.
For the adults, we're kicking off with a one-off pre-season class on Wednesday 31st January at the regular time. Be assured; you will sweat. The youth class will start the following week, on Monday 5th February. All class times are the same as last year.
This year, much of our focus will be on the Pyung Ahn Hyungs. These hyung (forms) make up a large part of the requirements at the coloured belt levels, and are steeped in history and tradition. We are not the only martial art that study these hyung, and a quick online search will return a lot of information that will help your study. A good place to start is the Wasatch Martial Arts website.
All students will learn these hyung this year, and as a way of assisting your study, we’ve added video footage to the members only area of the SMDK website [password = dojang].
Please be sure to let me know if you're unable to make it to training this term, otherwise Master Kehoe and I are looking forward to seeing everyone back in class soon.
