Growth in Martial Arts = Progress not Perfection
Many people talk about living and breathing martial arts, we mean it! Our Academy is filled with incredible martial artists who are living proof that it’s possible to make martial arts a way of life.
Just take a look at Richard Boomer – not slowing downs even a little bit even in the summer. He’s been training hard for the past couple of weeks and it’s really paying off. Last week, he took part in the demos New Energy muay thai Academy in Scarborough. And guess what? He totally rocked it!
He went up against a much bigger opponent and applied all the skills he’d been practicing. It was just a demo, so there was no winner or loser, but we all walked away with some great insights into how we can keep improving.
Pretty good for most but not even a week later, Richard headed up to Bolton, Ontario to see his Sensei and celebrate another milestone in his training as he’s testing for his 4th-degree black belt!
You heard that right – 4th degree! Not really ever the type to brag about his accomplishments, but the students and parents in his classes can definitely attest the difference in quality, attention, and energy that he brings to every single session.
So there you have it, folks. Richard Boomer is living proof that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible. We couldn’t be more proud to have him as part of our martial arts community.
