We do not rise to the level of our expectations; we fall to the level of our training.
The more you sweat in training, the less you will bleed in battle. - Motto of Navy Seals
Remember, you will be training in Taekwondo for years. Do not try to rush things and cause an injury that may deter your training for weeks or months.
Physical fitness is the ability to function effectively in physical work, martial arts training, or other activities, and have enough energy remaining to handle any emergencies which may arise. Fitness is improved by physical training.
Best Way to Train
The best way to train is at an actual dojang. Training at home is okay if you are disciplined and motivated and already have a good solid foundation in Taekwondo (obtained by previous training in a dojang). However, if you are new to Taekwondo, it is critical that you get professional instruction from a qualified instructor. Reading books, watching videotapes, or using a web site such as this one may serve as a supplement or guide to your training but they are no substitute for actual training in a dojang.
