lol, I'll try my best to not be so quick to say things.
Was there anything specific that inspired you to try out TKD and Hapkido? How are you finding the changes?
Well, I still do Karate, and I started Taekwondo and Hapkido. I loved Karate so much, that I wanted to extend my knowledge of the martial arts.
The changes though, I find them more like differences. The stances are what trip me up. Even though it seems easy to differentiate between the 3 arts, I have trouble with it. are there any tips out there to make sure that I can tell the difference?
Particularly with TKD and karate (depending on the type of karate), there are a lot of similarities from what I've heard. Apparently they both come from the same overall source, so the strikes and stances are probably very similar. From experimenting with different kempo styles, I had the same issues...my body knew very well my kempo stances and particularly my kempo kicks, took forever to do the slight changes to make them more kenpo kicks (eventually my sensei just gave up).
That's what I've learned from reading other posts on this forum, so one of those posters can likely come on and give you a better explanation
Thanks, its also good to know others struggle as well, and is not just a me thing
Ooh can I join? Don't forget to discuss which is more real between aluminium and aluminum
If we are going there Tez do you know what a male tea bag is in Australian?
Ah but that's not as saucy and interesting as the suspender discussion.
What differences, similarities, advantages/disadvantages have you seen specifically with your Hapkido studies compared to your experiences with Karate or Taekwondo? (Understanding only 3 to 4 weeks with TKD and HKD).
I'm the wrong guy to ask. I still use the archaic spelling "clew" when I wasn't to piss of Spelling Nazis.
Peace favor your sword,
*piss "off" spelling Nazi's
not sure about in Australia, but here in the states i heard it said that in the original karate kid script, after the knock out crane kick, Daniel san was supposed to give Johnny a tea bag.......
im not sure why he would drink tea after a fight maybe it has something to do with waking Johnny up from his knock out.. lol
Not just a 'me" thing, no. Good thing people don't realize the struggle involve when they first take up Martial Arts. There would be no kiais in dojos, just the sound of crickets.
Oh, but giving each other **** about what we do...is what we do!
Don't worry, you're not being singled out. All of us have started a thread by now that deteriorated this way.

Guys, how is everyone? Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been busy with RAAF stuff. How is everyone's training going? I have been doing a lot of Hapkido recently. Hoping I can perfect my "Nun Chigi" or finger strike! however this proves to be difficult!
Well good for you. Australia is a fascinating but from what I heard, in some ways very rough place. So, getting your first black belt must've been a rite of passage for you.
Interesting. Every Hapkido (Martial Art) school gets to do it there own way. I don't recall being taught that eye gouge that quickly when I was learning Hapkido. But it's all good. How do you define perfecting that strike?
What do you think about self defense against crocodiles? According to another Aussie on this forum, that's a real danger for you guys.
When I used to play golf in Florida on a regular basis, I'd have considered self-defense against alligators quite useful.
