Chi Liung Center Klang, 2012

Mandy and Mae Yuen had been training in the Chi Liung Center for at least 6 to 7 years now. Both are training hard as they are preparing themselves to go for their 2nd Dan test this coming April. Both have made remarkable improvement in terms of power and basic executions, but they are not about to ease up in their training schedule. They know what grueling test lies before them, and they want to get themselves in the best shape possible to face the challenges ahead.

One of the challenges they have to face is to spar with two partners instead of the usual one. Board breaking is the next. They have no qualms in breaking the boards with any techniques at all, but thinking about the sparring part with 2 partners  can make them quite jittery at times because it would be a completely different experience all together.

The challenge does not stop here. In fact, before the test, they have to do a physical which include a 2.4 km run, pushups, sit-ups, leg-raises, hyper-extension and squat jumps. Of course, all these will be done a day or two earlier.

Another member worth mentioning is Daniel Chee. Ever since, he joins the center training a year or two ago, my wife and I have noticed a significant improvement in his kicks. Syabas, Daniel, keep it up!

See here, how they train together with other fellow members every Friday, from 8.00 pm to 9.30 pm.

SMK Seksyen 9, Shah Alam, 2012

A decade has passed since the formation of the SMK Seksyen 9 Taekwondo Club. Since then, names have risen among our ranks and honour has been bestowed upon our school more than a few times. Following that, our members have been steadily increasing and on this year of 2012, our numbers reached a point unlike any year before.

Moreover, we owe a big appreciation to our stern yet loving instructor, Master Leong for the knowledge, discipline and the mentality of a martial artist he instilled in us. Although, we are not the best-mannered students in the world, Master Leong and Mr. Yap Ping Hong handle us with patience and teach us this awesome korean martial art earnestly. They set the perfect example for us in achieving excellence, both physically and mentally.

To our new members, welcome; to our old and committed members, welcome back! To the latter, a great thank you is offered as well. Another year full of fun and excitement as well sore limbs awaits you… Our Taekwondo training starts at 8.15 Saturday morning.
