Well the last year has been one of the strangest I can recall. It's been a year of trial and tribulation. Like many out there I contracted Covid, fortunately the disease ran it's course and didn't hit me all that hard. For those of you who have lost somebody I offer my prayers and sympathies.
Due to the pandemic and lock down I shut down the Covenant Hapkido School. Given the circumstances it seemed the most responsible choice. We have now been without our local school for a year and I miss my local students and the time we spent together. I recently took the first of the two part Covid vaccine. I realize this is may be controversial to some of you. Please remember that I served in the military for 20 years and I'm accustomed to getting vaccinated for just about everything so for me it didn't really take much consideration.
My main reason for getting vaccinated is I want to get back to teaching Hapkido locally. For my students, for my son, and for myself. I think the future will have some bright moments but I also continue to prepare for the worst and keeping fit and strong and ready to defend yourself is the best medicine for the unknown.
As for Hapkido Online, the pandemic only increased it's popularity. It's as busy now as it ever was. The Hapkido Dummies have been improving as well thanks to the ingenuity of one student in particular.
Moving forward I wish you all my prayers for the very best.
Teacher and Hapkido Online Developer.
