    tkd drills

    By "drills" I take it you mean, like, warm-up and stretching exercises? Well that's what I'm going to take it to mean anyway. ;) A favourite of mine is where we walk around the edge of the hall in a big circle doing every third step with a rising kick. After a few of these we move up to front...

    Yes I am asthmatic. I get wheezy mainly when I'm training hard, such as cardio, but I also get it quite a bit when I'm not doing anything. I really need to give up smoking as I know that it would greatly help me and I'd not get so wheezy.

    Tae Kwon Do Resolutions for 2007

    Mine is to mainly lose weight (I'm re-joining Slimming World) and to make sure that I stretch every day. At the moment I only ever stretch in class, but I know that I would get much more flexible if I did it at home as well. I'm hoping that by losing weight that my asthma will improve as well. :)

    Personality Quiz... accurate?

    Stability results were very low which suggests you are extremely worrying, insecure, emotional, and anxious. Orderliness results were moderately high which suggests you are, at times, overly organized, reliable, neat, and hard working at the expense of flexibility, efficiency, spontaneity, and...

    Most Difficult Belt Rank?

    I can see your point there, when you're a white belt, anything wrong is pretty much overlooked, but as you move up I guess there's no excuse for errors. Suffice to say, they're all as difficult as each other perhaps.

    Have You Smoked/Used Tobacco?

    I've been smoking since I was 16, and I'm 26 now. I know I really should give it us as I'm asthmatic, and I know it can't help. However, I'm not in the right frame of mind to quit at the moment, but once I am, I shall give it a go! :D

    Anorexia - How Can MA Instructors Help?

    You're probably right there, if they're starving themselves at that time. However, there are people (such as myself) who go through periods of it in times of particular stress or depression. I myself, suffer from bulimia, and although it's not right in my face at the moment, I fear it will...

    Most Difficult Belt Rank?

    I'd have to go with the majority and say White as well. Not only do you have so many new things to learn physically, but you've got all the theory to learn, and you've no idea what to expect at a grading. For my first grading I was feeling sick all day, and that feeling continued even after...

    Poomse and belt ranking

    That's pretty much identical to our syllabus up to 1st Dan black belt. I don't know a lot about what happens after then as I'm only a yellow belt myself and am having enough trouble remembering my parts! This is really trivial, but your spellings of the Korean terminology is different to ours...

    What's your instructor's rank?

    My instructor's a 1st Dan at the moment, but he's the best 1st Dan I've ever seen. Not that I'm biased (much!) but he really knows his stuff. I'm just so proud to have him as my instructor. ;)

    Hi everyone, newbie saying hello.

    Greetings fellow Martial Artists. :wavey: I'm 26 and from Devon, UK. I've been doing Tae Kwon-Do for just over 6 months and am currently at my yellow belt (8th Kup). My son (7) also does it with me and he's on his yellow tag (9th Kup) as he has taken a little longer to pick it up. We both love...
