Sabonim Says…

sabonima Korean term and title signifying a master level martial arts teacher/instructor

We play this game with our grade school students, a modified Simon Says, to encourage focus, concentration and listening skills.  I wonder sometimes how long the adult students (myself included) would last.

They are all abilities, that as adults, we are expected to have acquired.

Yet my mind wanders.

“There is always room for improvement.” my Sabonim says.

I hate that.  Would prefer to be better than good enough right now.

But part of what we learn is that we are always and at the same time good enough and getting better.
