It’s back to school time here in Central Pennsylvania. Some students of Tiger Rock Martial Arts of Central PA have taken the summer off to enjoy the vacations and family time that the season has to offer. For those coming back, we welcome you back! For those who stuck it through the summer, keep training hard!
Going back to school offers a set of challenges that were not there in the summer. Now, after a hard night of training, you can’t just sleep in the next day. Going back to school also means homework and sometimes a LOT of it. This is a challenge in and of itself but when you’re trying for your next belt or getting ready for a competition, it can sometimes seem like too much of a burden.
How does one overcome these new set of challenges? It all comes down to time management. Learning how to manage you time is one of the most important things one can learn and martial artists are no different. Making sure that everything is done at the right time and in the right order is something that is a part of the martial arts anyway. It is only logical that in order to make sure that homework and school projects get done is to think of them like they are a PART of your training! Like the forms, school work should be done in the proper order and with the right timing.
At Tiger Rock of Central PA, academics takes precedence (of course) over TKD training, so if you aren’t making the grade or are getting in trouble at school, stay home until you can get that part of your “form” down right. Just like in the other school sports you are involved in, the “no pass, no play” rule applies here too. However, I don’t think we’ll have that issue if everyone does their best like they have been at the academy.
I wish everyone luck going forward this school year.
