Last year I was searching for a suitable venue to study Tai Chi
The Black Belt Academy was recommended
Recommending a restaurant is difficult enough , but I had a good feeling
I phoned and visited
When you approach the building it is like finding a house you want to live in
I signed up for the Wednesday evening session
It has been a marvellous year
The session has now been transformed into an over-40’s Tae-Kwan-Do Beginners session , which I will be signing up for [ I am 50 + ]
The Academy offers a positive an inclusive atmosphere where individuals and families are encouraged to achieve at a personal level
Nothing is a problem
The teams work includes satellite venues , schools and other projects with young people
The instructors’ are also encouraged to develop individual skills , teaching and business skills
My translation of Master Vince’s philosophy :
We can all swim from the stream to the sea , through rivers and lakes .
We just swim .
At the Academy , you are encouraged to ‘ grow ‘ your legs or wings , leave the water , challenge and engage with your world ; yet not to lose touch with the water
Adapt and overcome
For as long as I am in Norwich , or wherever I go in the World , I will remain grateful for the opportunity I have had to share my time with everyone at the Academy
