MPI Forum in Chicago

Just came back from the second official meeting. I guess I can claim to be a member now (IU has a vote which requires to attend the two last meetings). Not much to say (officially), but it was very very interesting and productive! I’m looking forward to the next one. Here a picture of the crowd (try to find me :)):

Taekwondo updates

Yeah, I made my next belt (green) last week! So that was fun, ok, I know, I should have done this two months earlier, but I was traveling ;). And I will be traveling again soon. We (the IU TKD demo team) had a performance at some community fair today. That was fun.

There is even a psychadelic picture of me breaking a poor and helpless board with a side-knifehand strike:

see also the “longest belt in club” ;-).
