Dynamic Duo Reign At Arnold Sports Festival

Brooklyn Center residents, Mark and Sarah Wurdeman, placed first and/or second in every event that they competed in during the Arnold Sports Festival 2018 held in Columbus, OH.

The international event hosted several hundred competitors in over 40 martial arts divisions. Mark and Sarah, students in Taekwondo (Korean Karate) and Haidong Gumdo (Korean sword) at White Tiger Martial Arts, headquartered in Fridley. Both are senior students and instructors there.

Mark placed first in all four divisions that he competed – Tang Soo Do forms, Traditional Taekwondo forms, Weapons and Target cutting. Sarah had the misfortune of competing against Mark in three of the four divisions and against black belt ladies in another. Sarah will test for her black belt in Taekwondo in May 2018.

White Tiger Martial Arts focuses on the personal development of each student and uses tournaments as a way to challenge knowledge/understanding plus provide an opportunity to spend time with like-minded martial artists.

Awesome Day!

So, today I received the appointment to b the Co-Director of the Gumdo/Kumdo division of the Arnold Sports Festival/Battle of Columbus. this is a great honor bestowed by Supreme Grand Master Choi. T am honored to work with Senior Master Robert Gross on this event. He is an awesome martial artist and I believe that we’ll make it a success.

Fools!

If you don’t make awareness part of everything that you do, you will fall prey to the skills of those who mean you harm. This is from a simple pickpocket to an assailant wanting to harm you. Be Batman and prepare for all options that you can conceive!

Don’t leave things out! Make sure that you’re working to make sure that you’re safe and in control of what you can. Even the mightiest can be corrupted!

Hero Round Table (October 23 & 24, 2017)

WHAT IS THE HERO ROUND TABLE?

Often called the TED Talks of heroism, the Hero Round Table teaches people how to be more than a bystander. From our humble beginnings in Michigan to our global series on three continents and counting, we’ve already seen attendees go on to do amazing things.

Most importantly, the Hero Round Table has created a worldwide community dedicated to practicing heroism. We have spurred academic research on what makes people do heroic things, and we help regular people act on what we’ve learned. (quoted from the Hero Round Table website)

I have a very distinct honor coming up in October. I get to be one of 21 presenters for the Hero Round Table in Michigan. I will be discussing how the martial arts helps create your Hero! These Heroes take on the daily challenge of life.
