The pursuit of the martial arts is the only physical exercise that seeks to develop the human spirit. All other forms of physical exercise tend to be stultifying to the human spirit. The development of the human spirit is a prerequisite for the development of Renaissance Personhood.

Latest news, November, 2005. Lynda Hudman tested for her sixth degree black belt. She was awesome! It was very enjoyable to get together with all the people, which included Grand Master Brown of the National Taekwondo Federation of America, who is truly a role model to me. Not only is he talented in martial arts (he has an eighth degree black belt), but he is also a talented musician, and he and Mr. Allen entertained us with guitar and song at a pizza party after the testing. Mr. Lester from Phoenix also came, and he's another of my favorite people. And Rose Hudman just turned 80, and she hasn't been to class much due to injury, but plans to come back regularly. And Lynda Hudman earned her sixth degree. Congratulations! I think all of these people are fine Christians, and I really appreciate knowing them.

News, March, 2001: my instructor's mother just received her fifth degree black belt! She is 75. Congratulations to Rose Hudman!

You may wonder whether or not Mrs. Hudman could legitimately earn such a rank at her age. So I will tell you what she had to do. She had to perform ALL of the forms in three sets of forms (most martial arts schools only teach one set). She had to do the school's one steps interactively with a partner: both of them were performing one steps simultaneously, rather than taking turns downblocking for each other. She had to do a creative form she designed herself. She had to spar and break boards. She had to take a written essay test that takes approximately three hours to write. She had to demonstrate her kicking ability. She had to answer fact questions and thought questions on her feet after doing forms. And she had to do Won Hyo on the wrong side: a surprise requirement. She fulfilled each of these requirements. Yes, she legitimately earned her rank. She is an inspiration to me.
