A Night At The Dojang

Not aikido, but a good story:

Some of it sounded familiar.

Re: A Night At The Dojang

I was hoping someone here challenged A Tae Kwon Do guy. No such luck.

Re: A Night At The Dojang

a sad story... her so called dojo didn't even give her a shred of self confidence...

Re: A Night At The Dojang

I agree with Edwin; That was far from a good story, but one I'm sure many can relate to in their own way. From the very beginning of the story the theme throughout seemed to be an attitude that bounced between low self-esteem of herself and outright fear of her peers in her dojang.

She wasn't comfortable with who she was, what she had achieved, had no confidence in her own techniques after 2.5 years of training.

Hopefully things are better for her now.

Harmony does not mean that there are no conflicts,
for the dynamic spiral of existence embraces both extremes.
