Two more weeks,

and we'll be flying to Korea for this year's World Taekwondo Hanmadang.

Mixed doubles pattern practice

I had been hoping that we will be sufficiently well prepared to give the Indonesian and Spanish national teams a run for their money, but a closer review of the videos show that we still cannot match their physical conditioning and technical superiority.

There are many, many fine details to pay attention to, and prolonged diligent practice will give one the muscle memory to adjust, flick, thrust the right body parts at right time without conscious control.

With conscious effort, we can perform very very nicely on small bits. But to bright it all together requires the automated movements of muscle memory and to allow the conscious mind to focus on the big picture.
