One-Step Questions for Week #12 - 1/5/13



Welcome to the NEW YEAR!  Raise you fist, pump it in the air and  give a big Boo-Yah if you are going to become a Black Belt or get a New Degree in 2013!  

We are now officially in the last half of the time you have left to train.  Its time to start pushing yourself a little harder each week and increase your fitness and endurance for the pre-test. I hope to see you ALL on the winning side of the Red Rope this week and wearing a new belt in 16 weeks!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  I ran the full 1.5 miles 1 time this week and logged my time.  In addition I had one other running training session (can be interval training or other training) this week.

2.  I did my 100 consecutive pushups 2 times this week and timed myself.

3.  I have done 300 consecutive multiple round kicks on the bag 3 times this week.

4.  I have done 40 each of "crunches 5 ways" plus 7 bridges at 8 count 3 times this week.

5.  I have physically practiced all 15 of my forms 3 times each this week.

6.  I have mentally run all 15 of my forms 2 times this week.

7.  I have done air sparring or partner sparring for two 2 minute sessions with a 30 second break between.  Total of 4 minutes.

8.  I have 40 or more moves to my weapons form and I have practiced them. (Completed form due next week 1/12)


9.  I have asked a peer, a current Black Belt or an Instructor to watch me do my weapons form to give suggestions.

10.  I have Taeguek Il Jang checked off.  (Taegeuks Il, Sam and Oh are due on 1/19). 

11.  I have video taped myself doing Taegeuk Il, Sam and Oh this week and am improving my Taeguek forms for check off.

12.  I have video taped myself doing Palchugi Il, Sam and Oh this week and am performing these forms at the same level or better than I was required to perform them in order to get them checked off.

One-Step Winner's Chart Week #13 - 12/29/12

Congratulations to the 10 people who continued their training over the holiday and earned a bonus One-Step win today!  People worked on their weapons forms, practiced forms, practiced running, did crunches and pushups, multiple round kicks, etc.  Some people did ALL of that this week and more.

Becoming a Black Belt is about having the diligence and drive to do what you need to do even if there isn't anyone telling you that you have to do it.  Kudos to those who rocked it out this past week.

A big congrats also goes out to Mr. Aidan - you've pulled ahead and are now in the lead for most wins from a first degree candidate!  Mr. Craig and Ms. Leni frequently train together and remain neck and neck for the second degree and higher candidates.
