Grit and having a growth mindset have been a great asset when it comes to success. The general idea of being gritty is having motivation to push through obstacles despite the difficulty. A growth mindset is someone who will look at what they have as just the beginning start to what could be, opposed to believing that what they start with is what they are limited to. The two together are a great package because if an individual had a growth mindset perspective and the drive of being gritty, they will see a challenge and keep going regardless of failure and setback that will lead to accomplishing their desired task instead of giving up.

Throughout my years of taekwondo we always would talk about the three areas of a black belt champion, and now I feel like I fully understand what that means. I always try to do my best no matter where I am. At taekwondo, I always try my hardest and put in as much effort as I can. I take my training much more seriously then I did maybe five or six years ago. I put in as much effort as I can when it comes to practicing at home, training in class, or even when I'm doing leadership every Saturday. At school, I also try to do my best. I do my homework, study for tests, participate in sports such as Volleyball and Basketball, and get the best grades I can. I think it's really important for everyone, not just black belts, to know these three areas of a black belt champion, and how we can act our
During my high school year, I had joined the color guard team. Trying out for and being on the team had taught me a lot about myself and what I expect from myself. I had tried out for the team twice.
I’m at home on the high school parking lot. It’s the only space the administration grudgingly affords our marching band, and yet it’s ours. The band family lives and thrives off people supporting each other, we are there for each other when no one else is. I was elected by this family to be their band president last spring, and I have been completely changed. Despite the flashy title, I am still just one member of this 140 strong group, and I am still pushing to fulfill the responsibility placed on my shoulders.
“All-Powerful”; this is the meaning of the ancient Greek term pankration. Pankration was not only a sport, but a will driven, fight to the death. The empty-hand event had simple rules: no eye gouging and no biting. Everything else was fair game. The violent sport, which first made its way into the Olympic program in 648 (Miller 57), was a crowd favorite. When one opponent could not or refused to continue, the other was named victorious. In pankration, to concede was of utmost humiliation. This is what lead most losing challengers to merely accept their fate, and be choked to death.

The opportunities are plentiful and the rewards are generous. College, it’s a time for young adults to go off and try new things, grow as their own selves and pave their own path. There are an abundance of people who go off to college and participate in athletics, for myself this is an option. Wrestling is my sport, it’s all I know besides cattle, and it’s playing a major role in an extremely important life choice. Or is one better off sticking to school itself? Wrestling in college would provide new opportunities as well as limiting the things that a person could do.
A couple years ago I began my long journey to become a black belt in taekwondo. At first I was super excited to learn how to fight like the people on TV and have a way to defend myself against my brother. Shortly after starting I realized that the road to Jackie Chan status was going to take a lot longer than I thought.
A goal of mine, as well as others, has always been to be utmost person that I could possibly be. I realized though, I was doing the complete opposite of that. I was born with the rare disease called Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT), a disease that affects the nerves of my hands and legs. I used my disability as an excuse to hold myself from opportunities granted to me because of the shame I felt. As I started high school I realized that it was up to me to reach my full potential. I put aside all the self-degrading thoughts and fear that others would ridicule me. Although it made even the simplest tasks difficult, it shaped me into the person that I am today. I developed and achieved a new sense of confidence and even pride. With this newfound
Boom, bang, pow! Boxing was all I ever thought about as a child. I would dream, eat, and sleep boxing. Though I was a little shrimp weighing in only 75 pounds, I had a very big heart, which gave me the drive to keep on pushing forward. Everyone around me seemed like giants, but that did not stop me from doing what I love. Boxing sculpted me into a stronger person mentally.

Besides a coach an athletic trainer is the right hand man to an athlete. As an athletic trainer there are many tasks that keep us going. One is the athletes themselves and all of the requests they come in and demand. From recovering from an injury to preventing a life long injury from reoccurring trainers are always on the move. Prioritizing, viewing a wide variety of injuries, and differing work fields are just a few of the benefits that you get when you are a trainer.
Muscular strength, power, and speed are defined as the three vital skills needed by taekwondo players in their sport, as stated in Physical Training in Taekwondo: Generic and Specific Training (Haddad, 2014). Muscular strength is defined by Hall, E. (2003) as the ability of a muscle group to develop maximal contractile force against a resistance in a single contraction. Greenfield, B. (2016) suggests that power and speed goes hand-in-hand with strength. Greenfield (2016) defined power as the ability to generate high amounts of force over a period over a short time, while defining speed as the ability to travel a set distance over as short a period of time as possible. These vital skills allows a taekwondo player’s muscular units in the lower extremeties the ability to kick, jump, and maintain stances. According to this study, their hasn’t been a consensus about the different investigative studies done on the effect of muscular strength training in taekwondo, and only one study investigated speed and agility in low frequency taekwondo training measured through 50m shuttle run test (Kim, 2011). The study suggests that the findings are the result of low number of training sessions or non-sufficient stimulus eliciting speed and
