As far as I understand I compete with black belts, if I compete. That's an advanced level.
No, but I can spot hip twist that you apparently cannot.
You might be surprised to find that 4 years of formal training isn't much by typical standards around here.
I've got over a dozen years of formal training, and for half of that I've been doing formal training 15+ hours/week. And people still look down on me as a kid or a newbie.
You said that General Choi hip twsted in the clip with the student. Point me to where he did
Hahahaha that was great, you poet you ;D
Sir, Some understand it differently. How does General Choi classify First Dan?
Right there in the video. You posted it - why do you need me to point you to the video?
Many places put beginners in with the black belts as the beginners do less damage that way. The black belts have the control and ability to spar etc with the beginners without matching them in their zeal to throw punches wildly.
Black belt being the sign of advanced level is probably the most dubious claim you've made yet.
Just to make sure I'm looking at the right video, which video/what post number of the video are you referring to?
There are no dan grade distinctions in competitions.
because it isn't there.
That seems irrelevant. I thought you were just explaining how you are advanced because you would enter bb rank if you entered competitions.
Yes, since I would be competing with people who in your eyes are advanced.
I would also say that my hip mechanics are advanced. There are masters who don't have this form, and there are red belts who do. So belts are very relative...
Not in my martial art they don't, unless there simply aren't enough competitors.
At the end of the day we only compete against ourselves. We weren't born equal.
Whoever reaches master level, is only a master in relation to where the person was originally.
If we can get back on track for just a second. One of the things I object to about Sine Wave is that it emphasizes something we naturally do anyway, that is rise and sink into motions. In order to distinguish Chois concept then, it has to be more pronounced and that's why it's self-defeating and unnatural.
Just my 50 cents..
That is incorrect.
Yea, you just passed yourself. That is officially the dumbest thing you have said on this forum. And you have said a lot of dumb stuff.123
