Happy New Decade! It is the time of year when many people commit to resolutions that will hopefully improve their way of life in some way. Unfortunately, many of these self-promises are broken before the month is out. Not so with the martial artist and particularly those of you who study traditional taekwondo at CHOSUN. Each of you make a "resolution" every three months to earn a new belt or stripe, keeping the taste of achievement fresh in your mouth. Martial artists in general appreciate the value of perseverance and apply this virtue on a daily basis. So, whatever your resolution may be for the new year, pursue it with vigor. Make it measurable and achievable. And in the words of Grandmaster Richard Chun..."Never Give Up!"
