Thought I'd kick us off on our New Year's Resolutions.

For me I want to:

1. Get more consistent in my own training
2. Grow my club to 100 members (starting the New Year with 32)


Anyone else want to share their goals?

My New Year's Resolution:

1. Lose weight (but still be the Fat Cobra)!
2. Increase the size of the ShuBuKan.

Just change the “Fat Cobra” to “Phat Cobra” and it’ll be a smooth transition

2019 goals...

1. Be done with the disc issue that’s kept me off the floor since October.

2. Test for shodan*

*By test for shodan, I mean being truly ready - drop weight, be stronger and more flexible. I’ve got the mental part. I just need to sharpen up and get into the physically grueling test shape.

This year I'm shooting pretty high

1. Get certified as a d-level instructor & d-level judge
2. Get a tenure-track faculty appointment
3. Start a university karate club

I fully expect this to be a major challenge to do in my first year of trying, but here goes nothing!

Always hard setting these yearly goals, but important. So, here we go:

Grow Academy by 10 percent.
Maintain 4 day/ week average in training.
Get back into a weekly dose of PTK.
Maintain 2-3 days of additional conditioning.
Be smart enough to not aggravate injuries while trying to attain points 2-4.

Best of luck on the tenure-track job! I'm not sure what the market looks like in your field of study, but things are pretty flooded for mathematicians.
