i was at lost when i got a chance to talk right in front of the crowd during our graduation rites last Sunday and so i ask for deepest pardon for that.
i want to get back and have my formal speech for you guys in form of parchment, and i would want to do this now.
First, i would like to congratulate batch 11 who subsist the challenge of the brotherhood. Do your best in everything you do, in every practice you will be participating to uphold the glory of the institution. defend your name, and our insitutions’ as if it were your last fight. Retain your respect to your senior comrade. In PTC, it is you will not learn to kick but you will learn to have friends, treasure them.
Secondly, to all Senior batch. Wow~! its been two years that we’ve handled you, know you are at our place may you handle those freaky PTC batches as properly as possible. As the lead batch for the season, learn how to lead PTC properly. I know its difficult to be a leader, I can attest to that. But being a leader somehow gives you the prime against other guys, a prime that you would be proud of as you graduate. As a leader, learn not to be boastful nor eager for the post as the captain, assistant, and or the senior batch. Give your best shot in order for the PTC to maintain its name. Be more patient every time. Difficult but worth it.
Third, to all junior batches specially the Batch 11. As the junior batch of the group, be more open to every words that the lead batch would tell you. Respect and obey them. Think of you are in their post that your rank and file are not on what you’re saying. Just learn to follow them specially the instructors. Laziness is not a tenet of taekwondo. Your parents and instructors let you enter the institution not just for their own merriment but yours, to learn to be responsible, to gain more knowledge not only in taekwondo itself but as a whole.
In addition, to all my fellow batch 7 graduates. Congratulations, we surpass the challenge we had as batch 7. We may slip through our past and see that it is not as lucky as they have now, what we have encountered as batch 7. As a team captain of the group, I want to send my deepest gratitude to all who help me in handling the PTC [Philippine Taekwondo Contingent]. Thank you everyone.
PS: Batch 7, outing naman tayo~!

Team Captain – Batch 7
