Extreme calastethics

| No TrackBacks

After getting picked up from the airport, I had a divine feast at Pio Pio Resturant (Jackson Hghts,Qns).

My walking partner and I proceeded to gourge ourselves with avacodos, rice/beans, and sangria. It was after the second glass of sangria, that I realized that I was to engage in a workout with some TaeKwondo practitioners, later that evening at the Tessa Gordon's Pure Energy Martial Arts dojang.

Once I got to B'klyn, I hurredly grabbed my taebok and other essentials, and jogged to the studio.
Never like to be that visitor who arrives late and disrupts class. Luckily, they hadn't begun class
when I walked through the doors.

Gordon had a decent sized class with several gups. Once we began the workout, I quickly discovered
that I was in for a real treat. We jumped rope, two-count squat thrusts, push-ups, leg raises,
crunches, and host of other assorted excercises. Thirty minutes into the workout, I thought I had Peruvian chicken coming out of my ears and nose. This was not the first time I had trained with TaeKwondo practitioners, so I was not too suprised by the focus on endurance. Actually, this makes alot of sense for their style, as it is heavily influenced in tournament competition and sparring.

Nevertheless, I endured and continued with earnest. Clearly I wanted to represent World Moo Duk Kwan Tang Soo Do system well. Although, I had to stop a few times, I did enjoy it and will return on my next trip to home to B'klyn.
