A huge aspect of TKD that I admire and really enjoy seeing in Perseverance. Tenet 3.
To me, I enjoy it, while integrity dictates that I need to follow my instructors call for what we do, it's perseverance that gets me to meet my goals. I'll give 100% for that exercise, now I'm tired, but that won't stop me giving 100% on the next exercise that we're thrown.
oo easily do I hear that things are given up, and I know I let things fall by the wayside, but I know I'll pick them up again. Sometimes this can be a detriment, but we should only persevere in situations that we need to, we can drop things that will not be great for us.
I try my best when exercising to reach my max, to improve through perseverance, although with a lot of my training I know where my limits are and how everything should be. Holding yourself back then, should then be implemented if you don't know your limits, so that you don't burn yourself out, so that in the future you can exploit all of your potential.
I like Perseverance. It's one of my favourite aspects, but it's one of the most common things I see in class that isn't adhered to.
Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!
