A heartfelt thank you to my instructors, both those leaving us and those joining our ranks.
Practice the Old, While Learning the New
The longer you have known a technique, form, or sequence, the higher our expectations are that you can execute it proficiently. So, always remember that learning the new goes hand-in-hand with improving the old.

Looking on the Bright Side
It is easy to get discouraged and negative when things are out of our control, but we can also look at the opportunities that each situation brings.

Thank you, parents, for your dedication and perseverance in 2020!
