At Jung Do, we've always believed in a unique perspective on leadership, drawing inspiration from the words of thought leaders and visionary thinkers. Abraham Maslow once said, "We can either step forward into growth or back into safety." We wholeheartedly embrace this, encouraging every member to choose growth.
Similarly, we resonate with Simon Sinek's view that leadership is not a rank but a choice. It’s this philosophy that leads us to invite even our newest students, irrespective of their age or experience, to embrace leadership roles. After all, it's not about how long you've been with us but the choices you make while you're here.
Enter Coach Rebecca – the embodiment of this leadership choice.
From the outset, Rebecca chose to step forward. With seven years of training at Jung Do, there was a pivotal moment in her journey during the pandemic when she reflected on her progress. She recalls, "I realized I wasn't making the desired impact on myself or those around me. This realization was the crossroad between stepping back into comfort or advancing towards growth." She chose growth.
On the mat, her commitment to this choice was palpable. She became a beacon of inspiration, not only refining her techniques but also exuding a leadership presence that drew others in.
Beyond her personal growth, Rebecca took the initiative to guide others. When Coach Robert took a week-long hiatus in February 2023, she saw an opportunity and took it. "For the past seven months, I've taught consistently, and every moment feels like I’m truly living my purpose," she says.
Such transformative journeys never go unnoticed. Parents and peers alike have taken note of Rebecca's progress, often approaching us to sing her praises. And this impact isn't just a result of her dedication, but also the unwavering support she’s received from the Jung Do community, especially her sister, Ms. Sorensen, a 3rd-degree black belt and key member of our leadership team.
At Jung Do, we don’t just teach martial arts; we nurture leaders. Rebecca’s story is a testament to the supportive environment we've cultivated, enabling each member to realize their potential and make a difference in the community.
So, as we celebrate Rebecca, let her story be a reflection point: How do you define leadership? Is it a rank, a title, or as Rebecca has shown, a continuous commitment to growth and impacting others?
Join us in applauding Rebecca's journey, and may her story inspire many more to step into leadership and make a difference.
