I’ve long been a proponent of having new people come to class, but I really love new folks that come and have a lot of experience. We live on the outskirts of nowhere, on the edge of the world, but we have a highly transitional population and we occasionally get lucky. Case in point – last week we had a new young guy who was incredible motivated and appeared very excited to be in class, but never showed up afterwards.
This week we’ve had a new lady show up and she’s also from a TKD school. She has her black belt and appears to be enjoying our class, but you can see the confusion in her face at times because of the difference in teaching styles. I hope she stays because she brings in skill as well as having another lady in class. Our only other one is Swimmer, but she’s in High School and her schedule keeps her away from class frequently.
