Discipline: activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill; training.
And so above is the definition one must endure to become proficient in anything. Last week Manong Rich visited the San Diego Crew and as always we enjoy and appreciate his tutelage, even though he brought the rain with him, and yes we trained through it. I believe he was generally pleased with our Group's progress, but like any good teacher, will always encourage and set goals and point out what to work on. While our group has made strides, with progress also comes challenges within and outside the training. Sometimes in the eagerness to absorb knowledge or reach milestones, like a sponge there comes a point even a sponge cannot hold all it takes and a pause is taken to free up those spaces again for clarity. Following the lead of what Manong Rich would like to see and expects, last Sunday's Group Practice concentrated in slowing down the pace and reviewing the Level 2 curriculum we have thus covered, we also fine tuned other areas each of us may have little smudges within our ever growing skills. By the end of the morning training, it was good for all I think we all felt better about reviewing and clarifying.
One thing I'd like to bring out, each week is a testament of who our founding members really are, since the start of our still inaugural first year of becoming a group, we have grown from 4 participants on the first day to as high as 16 participating, but through it all we know the consistent "8" and it is documented, just go back each week and see who they are. One day when we look back from where we want to be and recall this first year, I hope to see the consistent members of our first year still around and with us, because the founding members of this group will be the foundation of what FCS San Diego will one day be, stick with it and stick with us (no pun intended) my brothers and sisters.
