I’m guessing it’s a combination of not wanting to learn new stuff at the expense of the old stuff along with the inclination to think that the way...
IMO for those who chose to stay with what they knew it was more about sticking with what they learned - not having to learn new stuff as opposed...
I know its been a min since Ive been in here but....Im back! ;)
Ive read a few post in this form but not all and Im sure all have already said why...
Hey checkout my new vlog on YT: [MEDIA]
Working on a new video to post today.
I know he got his certificate of Hanshi (?) meaning he had the right to teach, from Itosu.
There had to be a Dan system by the 1940's because Im...
That suppose to say "How LONG did it take......"
Im curious about this. Back in the old days like the 1930's & 40's.
And did they do the 2yrs to get 2nd Dan, 3yrs to get 3rd Dan, 4yrs to get...
Ok here's and other one. I tried to get two angles as best as I can.
I do have an old pic of my teacher in Korea back in the 50's with some writing in the back ground but every time I ask a Korean to translate...
I never knew that.
Its the blank part I need to know tho.
So did the Korean people migrated from China and did they speak Chinese or was it Chinese writing...
Oh one more.
But I think this is written in Chinese.
Can you read old Korean?
I would like to know what this says especially the parts (besides the name and date) that were hand written in.
Mines would be:
Ki Whang Kim
Me (1st Dan)
And then it would be:
Ki Whang Kim
Me (2nd-4th Dan)
He was my teacher. I grew up around him. My dad would take me over his house some Sat and I would watch Kung-fu movies while they would talk. All...

I think you would get a better answer from the person who is teaching because its gonna...
Oh ok...well I dont know. I never cared about getting a certificate from the KKW.
There a lot ppl that do that here in the States. The US Chung...
Yes. To me thats just a scam to make money. You pay the amount of whatever level you're testing for. So 6th Dan is $600. This is what Ive been...
Who was your instructor?
Thats fine. I can see what you're saying. I just disagree.
I grew up in TKD and we had Aikido techniques that were part of the curriculum. I would say go with Yoshikan Aikido but Im bias because my...
Nah. Kusanku, Sa Bang Kwon and Chinto.
I trained with Saotome in Aikido and he told me that I was a white belt in his system but that doesnt that my skills are null and void. But they...
Nah.....I was taught it don't work like that. I've trained in Kung Fu and Aikido and none of them asked me to wear a white belt. They excepted me...
Thats how it should be. If a person walks in with a BB from somewhere else you say ok no problem you just have to learn the curriculum. I guess...
Ok I understand. Like I said I already know how USCDKA works and what it takes for yall to get a certificate from Master Uhm. I just dont agree...
Ok....if you say so.
