    Probably not. But no less, either. You may not have noticed in your rabid desire to sling innuendo, but I never said anything whatsoever about the practicality of their techniques. Nor am I going to. As it happens, I consider Hapkido (by whatever creative name is applied) to be an eminently practical art in most respects. It's not perfect, and it does have weaknesses, but that's true of every system. And every practitioner.

    Actually, yes. Try a break and fail, and you'll find that the rebound of energy hits back plenty hard. Harder than a punching bag, certainly. Do you use a bag in your training, or do you only ever strike living opponents who are striking back? But of course, what you're really saying here is that you don't understand the reasons why breaking may be considered a useful training tool.

    Gosh, if nobody (other than you, of course) is allowed to have an opinion or offer a possibility for consideration, this is going to be a pretty boring place.

    I did some breaking in past don't worry, but soon I found out that breaking stuff is ********.

    Now that's out of the way, maybe next time you should consider starting with the bold part in the quote rather than whining about a name......??? :D

    What whining? Can you please show me exactly what I've written that can reasonably be considered whining?
    I actually thought what I wrote was perfectly clear. And, in fact, you seem to be the only person who had any difficulty understanding it. I apologize. I'll try not to confuse you in the future.

    Why break out the "you must be jealous" card?

    He said the same thing I did. "Practical" is marketing language. Neither of us said there was anything wrong with using it. Schools need students - commercial ones more so than non-commercial, but any program needs students to continue being a program.

    You're projecting an animosity onto his posts that I don't see in them.

    Well he was pretty cynical about it and was almost trolling the OP about his "deadly" art.

    I see that you like to befriend the staff here Seymour, keep going your on the right track. :D

    Actually, I was spoofing the advertising techniques seen in many MA ads back in the 70's and 80's.
    Again, I apologize for the apparent confusion you've suffered.

    You keep saying I'm confused but I'm really not. You might confused be about the attitude you give on these boards as a staffmember. People are telling me things in private messages about your behaviour......

    Think about it....

    Maybe you should ask some lessons from the Practical Hapkido guys, then you learn some skills.

    You're being snitty this morning. Have some more coffee or something. Nobody is attacking you, and you seem to be attacking everyone around.

    As for befriending, I befriend those who seem pleasant to hang around. Some are staff (I'm guessing that's how they got there). Some are not. Some I even argue with, but actually like rather a lot (especially if they have a sick gi). I'm not sure what my taste in people has to do with you lashing out at people making fairly level observations about the use of the term "practical".

    Actually, I think you are confused. He wasn't attacking the use of the word, though you clearly think he was.

    I'm not attacking anyone, just stating facts that @Dirty Dog is a trolling staffmember. I'm not the only person that thinks this....

    Those guys shared some information about the system they teach, then maybe instead of bitching about a name, like skribbs did and our beloved staffmember did, give them some proper feedback on their techniques.

    Not attacking? You're attempting to make fun of part of his practice, telling him he needs lessons from the OP, and saying he's trolling (when he isn't). That's pretty clearly attacking.

    As for Skribbs, I actually disagree with him on his post here, but not vehemently. And I didn't bother to get snitty and bitchy about it.

    Oh, and the "you disliked my post, so I'm going to dislike yours" is pretty childish, too. Your entire tone this morning is pretty shallow.

    It's not attacking, it's giving someone some proper advice.

    :hilarious:

    Advice is best given in a helpful tone, and based upon some evidence. Yours lacks both.

    Shallow is the word I always think of when I see your picture, what a coincidence.
