9/11 Forgive but never Forget!

Posted: September 11, 2017

Today marks the 16th anniversary that changed the lives of thousands of families and emotionally impacted the entire country. Thousands of family members and survivors are in NYC at the World Trade Center Memorial today paying their respects by reciting lost loved ones names, sharing and holding pictures, moments of silence and tolling bells. Others grieve differently and visit the memorial once a year as a way of closure and in the hopes of being closer to loved ones who passed. Victims family members also come together once a year to share their stories and help each other grieve and support each other. As we get older I think we can all agree that seeing and feeling our loves ones pass and taken away from us is the hardest thing that a person and family has to go through.

16 long years have passed but the wounds seem like it was just yesterday, people are hoping to take a step back and use this moment of darkness and healing to shed some light on uniting the country that has been torn a part this year. Today whether you were white, yellow, brown or black, it didn't matter. We all came together and put aside our differences on a united front where we shared the memories of our loved ones with smiles, hugs and tears. Today showed us that we do not have to agree on everything but we can still respect, support and love each other.

At Master Parks we would like to take a second and have a moment of silence for all the loved ones we lost on 911 and our hearts go out to all the families that were affected. At our dojos we have parents and training partners that miraculously survived the attack on 911 and continue to fight everyday and keep their heads held high for their families and friends, we know it's hard and appreciate every second.


4 Ways Tae Kwon Do Helps Kids With Their Studies at School and Adults at the Workplace

No doubt, studying and doing well in school is one of our main priorities for at least the first 18 years of our lives plus college and then onto your master and PHD. This may have initially been encouraged by our parents, which we will also be unabashedly passed down to our next of kin, but ultimately all of us want to make the most of our years at school because it will help us fulfill our goals in life. While we know that education is the key to future opportunities, what else can we do to supplement our education in order to maximize our learning potential, output, and results? The answer lies in one of the many academic research studies that have found evidence of a link between exercise and a boost in academic results.

1. Form Awesome Life Changing Habits

Success starts with believing in yourself. With martial arts, you will always be striving to be 1% better than yesterday and be goal-orientated in learning new techniques and mastering old ones. In the same way, hours of hard work need to be put into progressing to the next level in martial arts, succeeding in your studies is equally based on the commitment you put into it.
