poomse seminar day 1

we worked from 10 am to 1 pm, took a 2.5 hour lunch break typical of the spanish lifestyle, restarted from 3:30 to 7:30. it was a full spanish workday. the countries that were at the seminar were finland, denmark, navarro (spain), USA, france, and portugal. we all introduced ourselves to each other and no one could pronounce each other's names or even say nice to meet you.

we did some cool drills, including warmups that help with poomse stances and poomse motions. there was also a good mix of young (16-18 yrs old) and old (>50), who were still limber and ridiculous.

in the afternoon, as the sun took on a orange low and lit up the walls which were red with yellow curtains, master ketoo dang looked more and more like a buddhist monk philosopher master teaching all of his disciples about life. at the end of the day, my knees hurt and my head was giddy but i was full of new poomse knowledge. and now for the second 3 course meal of the day...this time i'll have some wine with it.
