Pissing People Off :) | ITF Taekwon-Do

People are funny (and apparently pissed)!

It seems as though last week’s article about it being possible to get your Black Belt in 12 months has pissed off quite a few people. 😉

If you remember, in that article I outlined how it was possible and the two main reasons why people would disagree with me, which were
1. it wasn’t how long it took them (their past)
2. and/or not being clear about what a Black Belt represents (a beginning).

And just like clockwork, everyone complaining about it was comparing it to their past experience… just like I said they would. Most of the comments were some version of, “at my school we…” or “I got my Black Belt after __ years!”

It’s obviously not a common path and all I was saying is that it’s possible. But here are some responses from Moosin.net:

ITF Taekwon-Do Instructor Business Success Training System - 12 month black belt comments

I think this one is my favorite (a true example if the tenets):

ITF Taekwon-Do Instructor Business Success Training System - 12 month black belt comments

There was one person who commented that he had achieved a Black Belt in 13 months and as I said before, it’s not common, but it’s possible.

I’ll leave it up to you to choose the path you want to take your students down and the proof will be in the results. But don’t be afraid to think a little outside the box even when everyone inside the box is throwing daggers at you, trying to keep you in.
