Reflecting on 2014, Looking Forwards to 2015!

*Originally posted on the FMK blog on the 3rd of January, 2015.

First of all, happy new year for 2015 to all involved in Freddie's Modern Kung Fu. I look forwards to whatever may come to contribute to the growth of FMK. 2014 was a difficult year. A Malaysian passenger airliner went missing without a trace and another was shot down over Ukraine. A gunman tried to assassinate members of Canada's parliament, and another man claiming Islam and armed with a rifle held people inside a cafe in Sydney hostage for 16 hours before being shot by the police, who were unable to prevent the deaths of 2 of the hostages. A more personal blow was the passing of my beloved dog Grace.

The Freddie's Modern Kung Fu YouTube channel was wrongfully shut down. On the bright side however, Freddie has made a strong new start on Vimeo and some of the videos he has been bringing out lately make me wish I live closer to the Northern hemisphere!

2014 was not the best year. Maybe this is partially why I feel very enthusiastic about 2015. This year I will be doing my last year in secondary school. I predict that it will be very hectic and thus I may not be able to bring out blogs as regally as I did in 2014. I will try to produce good quality in what I do bring out. I might even acquire new knowledge wether it be theoretical or/and practical as I will be starting Tai Chi classes. I have wanted to start Tai Chi for over a year now as I feel it's important to study the Yin in-depth, but I wasn't able to fit it into my weekly timetable. My solution to this is to cut down my Taekwondo hours and substitute it for Tai Chi. I also really like the teacher. He currently has 2 students as he likes to keep classes small for better quality instruction. You can read more about him here: http://freddiesmodernkungfu.blogspot.com.au/2014/07/local-tai-chi-teacher.html.

A big highlight of 2014 for me was meeting Freddie Lee and Steve Caissy on Skype, as well as becoming involved and communicating with everyone on the FMK blog. I joined this blog in June 2014 and have since contributed 47 blogs to this community. It was also a great contribution to myself as my writing ability improved, greatly helping me out in other areas in life (ie school).

This year will hopefully be a great year of physical, mental and spiritual growth for us all. Bring on 2015!!!

Thank you for reading.
