Thinking about Saturday, 2 July, it will be a day I will never forget.
It was the day when I put myself up for grading to 6 Dan.
I passed and am eternally grateful to the assistance of several important instructors who have guided me over the last six months of preparation: Master Rocky Rounthwaite; Master Lawrence Mantjika; Sabum Carl Robinson; Sabum Richard Burr; Sabum Graeme Walshe and Sabum Dane Canton.
Thankyou to Sabum Walshe and Ms Millissa Bethel for taking my Wednesday classes to free me up for training.
Thankyou to my students who uncomplainingly put up with my non attendance for close to two months.
I couldn't have competed this project without your input.
I'd like to share three things which applied to me over this period. They are part of what is called the Philosophy of Taekwon-Do, and are words written by the Founder of our art, General Choi Hong-Hi.
Be content with money and position, but never in skills. Grading to higher levels always requires students to learn more and harder things that are mentally and physically challenging.
Do the things that are worthwhile even though they are difficult. Part of what it means to be human is to continually reinvent ourselves by setting new limits and boundaries, or else we stagnate and don't realise our true potential.
Once you start something, don't stop until it is finished. This project was six years in the making. I had an opportunity to do it in five but realised then that I was not ready. But it always felt like unfinished business until I finally did it.
So doing this grading has allowed me to grow as a human and in some way has made me a better version of myself.
Thankyou General Choi for the legacy that you have left the world that is Taekwo-Do!
