My grandmother bought me a set of 6 china cups and saucers for my 21st birthday. Now I’m 50 but those cups and saucers have been used almost daily. Sure, I lost two cups at some point but it doesn’t really matter. Those objects were given for me to love and enjoy them and I’ve had nearly thirty years worth of enjoyment out of them. Of course I could have kept them safe in bubble-wrap at the back of the cupboard but what would be the point of that? Most of us will happily use supermarket glassware and keep the cut-glass in the cupboard. Why? If you have precious items that you want to use but are worried about them being lost or destroyed consider the following: -Take a really great photograph of the object. If you lose the object you’ll have the photograph forever. -Make sure items are properly insured. -Display them somewhere safe (in a lit cabinet? In a jewellery box?). -Be sensible about their use – don’t give your best cut glasses to the children (although I used to … and my children never broke any). -Don’t put your favourite items in the dishwasher or the washing machine (wash by hand) … I’ll admit I stick most things in the dishwasher but that’s just me! However, once you have decided which precious items to keep, clean them carefully and look after them. -Make sure your antique jewellery has a safety chain fitted (a good jeweller will do this for you). Don’t wear that precious necklace until you get the clasp fixed etc (be sensible about it). Then, once you’ve taken precautions, use and enjoy the items that you love. Granddad would have wanted you to have worn his gold pocket watch occasionally or at least have it placed in a beautiful display box where you can enjoy it every day.

Comments Off on Taekwondo One of the best defensive sport for kids
In 1952, there was a martial art demonstration, in which martial art participants showed their skills and movements. On one occasion, Nam Tai Hi broke 13 tiles with a single punch. The then President of South Korea initiated the reintroduction of martial art skills in the army. The name -Taekwondo- was submitted and accepted in April 1955. There were nine Kwan (taekwondo practitioners) at that time and all these agreed to the same code of conduct and KTA (Korea Taekwondo Association) was established in 1960. After that, masters of taekwondo were sent to different part of the world to teach people all the techniques and rules of Taekwondo. These efforts to grow the sport have led to the widespread popularity of martial arts throughout the world. The ITF (International Taekwondo Federation) was established in 1966 and the WTF (World Taekwondo Federation) was established in 1973. Taekwondo was a demonstration sport in the 1988 Olympics and then became a full Olympic sport with medals during the Sydney 2000 Olympics. The Common Wealth Games also added taekwondo in 2010. Taekwondo is not only a sport. It is a lifestyle, that improves fitness, tolerance and overall mental health. Quick movements with the hands and feet are practiced repetitively to build muscle memory and to enable the fighters to react in the quickest manner possible. The fitness level obtained with training for this sport is comparable to the most demanding Olympics sports. Taekwondo also provides an excellent level of confidence for the practitioner. The mental focus required to complete at an international level is as important as the athletes physical ability. Originally confined mostly to Asia, martial arts are practiced in almost every nook and corner of the world. The Olympics has helped Taekwondo to become mainstream and one of the most popular and fastest growing martial art. taekwondo videos olympic taekwondo
