Young martial artists and sportsmen can learn a lot from “veterans.”
I love the below sparring final video from the 2016 World Cup (Budapest) for two reasons.
First, you can clearly see how the opponents respect each either despite high stakes. After all, this was a fight for the champion title. This is what courtesy is about – the first tenet of taekwondo.
Second, the master from Argentina managed to literally squeeze out the victory six seconds before the match end. He demonstrated a true indomitable spirit – another tenet of taekwondo.
A great example of tenets in action.
