Martial Arts Georgia – Go Be Great!

Choe’s HapKiDo Martial Arts Georgia: Being discouraged is easy. While the intimidation of others can happen anywhere, it’s important to not let them stop you from doing what you planned.

Let’s say you wanted to try out a new sport or a muscial instrument. We all know that there are great legends out there like Michael Jordan and YoYo Ma. And we will meet others who are playing on different levels than us.

Don’t stop in your tracks because you feel like you can’t be great like them. See them as inspiration. A lot of these people have natural talent, but they have all put in a ton of hours into perfecting their abilities to be great.

Most importantly, all the greats have started from level 1—like you! To be great at anything, we’ve got to start at the beginning.

The Group of Frogs

The Group of Frogs

A group of frogs were traveling through the forest when two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that there was no hope left for them.

However, the two frogs ignored their comrades and proceeded to try to jump out of the pit. However, despite their efforts, the group of frogs at the top of the pit were still saying that they should just give up as they’d never make it out.

Eventually, one of the frogs took heed of what the others were saying and he gave up, jumping even deeper to his death. The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the group of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and to just die.

He ignored them, and jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, “Did you not hear us?”

The frog explained to them that he was deaf, and that he thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

Moral of the story: People’s words can have a huge effect on the lives of others. Therefore, you should think about what you’re going to say before it comes out of your mouth – it might just be the difference between life and death.

Choe’s HapKiDo: Live Stress Free!

Choe’s HapKiDo- Let go of your Stresses!
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: ”How heavy is this glass of water?”
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.”
She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”
It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!

Kids Benefit from Gwinnett Martial Arts Karate

As you may have observed, being a kid is tough. Not only are kids learning more about this world, but they also run into difficult problems like trying to make friends and overcoming everything that’s thrown at them from school. And especially with the making friends part, it can definitely be a struggle for a lot of our kids. As a result, their self-esteem is affected, and they become shy and develop social anxiety. On the other hand, other kids may be unaware that their behavior can discourage peers to approach them. Whether it is from the child being high in energy, impulsive, loud, or angry, other students will find reason to dislike one another and unfortunately stay away. Gwinnett Martial Arts Karate fixes the problems that kids have with each other by being a place where all kinds of students collaborate daily.

At Choe’s HapKiDo Gwinnett Martial Arts Karate, people of different personalities and characters come together. They learn to work with one another, and they develop great respect towards each other. Children who learn HapKiDo grow more confident about themselves, and they learn how to take control of their emotions. They start making friends with everyone in class because of the bonding that takes place when working together.

With a well-rounded martial arts program like Choe’s HapKiDo Gwinnett Martial Arts Karate, children who struggle with making friends will have an easier time to do so at school. They learn what their strengths are and how to use them. The fear of approaching people or starting up conversations lessens because they are  around students of their age all the time. When it comes to ice breakers, sharing with someone new what belt rank they are and what kind of techniques they used to board break always impress listeners. And kids who struggle with anger or rudeness learn the importance of waiting in line patiently or letting others have their fair turn in a game.

When kids learn how to work together and put aside their differences, they can accomplish great tasks. As they spend time together in class holding kicking targets for each other and advising each other on how to improve a technique, they focus on helping one another.

Don’t Be Afraid!

Don’t Be Afraid:
Here we are, afraid of losing what we have all the time, holding on to it so tight that not a soul can touch it. We think by hiding it from the world, it’s hidden and it’s ours. Nothing is. Nothing ever will be. For, nothing ever was.
If you think there is anything that you have that’s yours, be it money, a house, a job, or a girlfriend… it’s nothing but an illusion. It’ll all disappear… in one blow. One blow, my man.
Here we are, so insecure that we are afraid of re-starting our lives, so we just carry on trying to sort out the current mess. The thought that we should give it all up and just start all over – with nothing – might cross our minds some time, sure, but we get scared and we push away anything that scares us.
There is nothing I can ever achieve or gain that I cannot lose, in a matter of seconds. You have never gained enough to not be able to lose it all, in just a few minutes. What you think is yours, was never yours and will never be yours. Whatever you make here, you leave here. You came naked and you’re going to go back naked.
So what are you afraid of?
Let all be lost. Let them take away everything. As long as you have your heart beating strong, as long as you have your nostrils working fine, as long as the blood flows in your veins, you will live, you will breathe and you can get it all back… again and again. For, if you can do it once, you can damn well do it again. It’s just a game we play – Life.

Take Control Of Your Life

How do you take control of your life? Perhaps, a parable will help!

High on a hilltop, overlooking the beautiful city of Venice, Italy, there lived an old man who was a genius. Legend had it he could answer any question anyone might ask of him. Two of the local boys figured they could fool the old man, so they caught a small bird and headed for his residence.

One of the boys held the little bird in his hands and asked the old man if the bird was dead or alive. Without hesitation, the old man said, “Son, if I say to you that the bird is alive, you will close your hands and crush him to death. If I say the bird is dead, you will open your hands and he will fly away. You see, son, in your hands you hold the power of life and death.”

In your hands, you hold the seeds of failure or the potential for greatness. Your hands are capable, but they must be used for the right things to reap the rewards you are capable of attaining.
