Making Jeong

This weekend I talked to Master. He asked how it was at the new studio. I told him exactly what I thought of “New” Master.

I explained that I was trying to have an open heart, but that we didn’t have jeong. I told him Special Forces and I were starting to have jeong between us.

He understood.

I showed up to taekwondo tonight.

I was the only student.

I warmed up and then Special Forces Instructor and I chatted in Korean and worked on poomse together. We were alone for twenty minutes, when another student finally showed up. We continued to work on poomse.

I love poomse. It is my favorite part of taekwondo.

After class, Special Forces and I sang the Three Bears song (a Korean children’s song) to the other student. Then Special Forces and I chatted about Korea. By the end of our chat, we were both muttering, “아, 보고 싶어…”

I miss Korea.
