ATA Taekwondo Tournament Board Breaks David Roberts 2.26.2011
Despite a painfully injured foot (cracked bone it turned out to be) & many people telling me I shouldn’t & shouldn’t have competed with it, I managed to earn a 3rd place medal in board breaks this Saturday. It may not look like it in the video but each kick is very painful. I withdrew from the forms & sparring events after board breaks due to the big blood bubble forming on my foot, previous injury broken open again. Even now (Monday night) the bubble is still there & simply wearing a shoe hurts!
I never air-balled a board, but I did finger pop a couple of the 360’s, my thanks to my tough-as-nails board holders & their knuckles & my instructor Ms Hale for allowing me to do advanced content in the competition.
And thanks to my mom & wife for doing the video recording too!

My boss sent me this one, pretty funny stuff..
Wall of Shame – Wallmart Parking Job
Latest Injury – Broken foot
In the ER yet again. Practing my quad combo board break for the compitition on saturday. It’s a pretty awesome combo – starts with a left snapping chin level jumping front kick, then a right foot knee level roundhouse following into right foot 360 head level roundhouse and ending with a left foot shoulder level spinning axe kick. It’s all one fluid motion where my feet barely touch the ground. Really cool stuff. Well the last 360 round house sent the board flyin across the room, into a wall which then fell on a table and onto the floor making a big racket…but didn’t break it. I screwed up and hit the board just below my right foot big toe.. Very little instantaneous energy transfer due to the leverage & lack of inertia on the tip of my foot, but full power backing it up. Turned a dark purple and produced a bubble looking thing about the size of a ping pong ball all around the base of the big toe knuckle within 5-10 seconds of the hit. Still sitting in the ER waiting on my turn for an xray. Sure hope the joint is just blown all to hell intead of having broken bones. They might not let me compete on saturday if they find out i broke my foot.
THIS IS MY NETWORK.
THERE ARE MANY LIKE IT, BUT THIS ONE IS MINE.
MY NETWORK IS MY BEST FRIEND. IT IS MY LIFE.
MY NETWORK WITHOUT ME IS USELESS. WITHOUT MY NETWORK, I AM USELESS.
I MUST SUBNET MY NETWORK TRUE.
I MUST PATCH FASTER THAN MY ENEMY WHO IS TRYING TO HACK ME.
I MUST DETECT AND CONTAIN HIM BEFORE HE BREACHES ME. I WILL….
MY NETWORK AND MYSELF KNOW THAT WHAT COUNTS IN IT IS NOT THE BANDWIDTH WE PROVIDE,
THE LOW LATENCY WE ENJOY, NOR THE UPTIME WE MAINTAIN.
WE KNOW IT IS THE SECURITY THAT COUNTS. WE WILL LOCK DOWN…
MY NETWORK IS HUMAN, EVEN AS I, BECAUSE IT IS MY LIFE.
THUS, I WILL LEARN IT AS A BROTHER.
I WILL LEARN ITS WEAKNESSES, ITS STRENGTHS, ITS PARTS, ITS ACCESSORIES, ITS SWITCHES, AND ITS ROUTERS.
I WILL EVER GUARD IT AGAINST THE RAVAGES OF UPPER MANAGEMENT AND USERS.
I WILL KEEP MY NETWORK UPDATED AND EFFICIENT, EVEN AS I AM UPDATED AND EFFICIENT.
WE WILL BECOME PART OF EACH OTHER. WE WILL….
BEFORE GOD I SWEAR THIS CREED.
MY NETWORK AND MYSELF ARE THE DEFENDERS OF MY IT DEPARTMENT.
WE ARE THE MASTERS OF OUR USERS.
WE ARE THE SAVIORS OF OUR UPPER MANAGEMENT.
SO BE IT, UNTIL THERE ARE NO VULNERABILITIES, BUT FUNDING!
Finally some nice weather
So. Apparently no amount of strenuous exercise can make up for a poor diet.
