Tonight’s promotion to 5th Gup Green represents the highest rank I have achieved in Tang Soo Do. Not that reaching 6th Gup several months ago wasn’t important but it really just represented catching up to where I left off back in the 80s when I drifted away from Tang Soo Do.
Honestly, I wasn’t happy with my performance. I was sloppy and my lack of training over the last couple of months was painfully evident. I can’t let that happen again.
