Great Album.  Not the topic of discussion.

Lots of folks seem to have felt the need to find a reason for our family's choice to step back from running a school and being active.  I get it, we strive to make sense of the world around us.  I still get to talk to people though, so from time to time, I get to learn why I did this.  Some of these are fascinating, some humorous, and some are downright hurtful to hear from my TSD family.

The truth is quite simple:

It stopped being fun.

If that's inadequate, and you feel the need to postulate on the real reason, I'm sorry.

2018 was a year of change for me. We handed off the Tang Soo Do classes we were teaching to one of our senior students. We took a step back from involvement in our organization, including my stepping down from the position of Regional Director. We don't go to tournaments, tests, clinics, camps, etc. We didn't quit; we're lifetime members of our org. Just taking a step back for awhile.

At the end of the year, the bill came due for my webhosting. I decided I wasn't using it, but wanted to keep the CTSDA domain, so blogger came to the rescue in case I want to write anything and anyone wants to read it.

I've gotten a new job, delved more into tai chi, started playing disc golf, and otherwise focusing on my family and enjoying life.

I still practice TSD. I walk through the one-steps and forms for memory purposes. My personal training revolves around Seisan and Oh Sip Sa Bo.

Maybe I'll write more. Maybe not. :)
