    Belt Rank Progress

    A couple of thought on testing. Where I train the black belt test is an event. It is a physical test that lasts anywhere from 3 to 7 hours, and is a one day event. Testing from high red to black, all the poomse, blocking, kicking, techniques are gone over as well as endurance, breaking...

    I love it. The videos were totally cool....

    The Hipocritcal Standard of Harassment

    I personally do not like people touching me period especially at work. I however would not hesitate to tell you that you crossed a line with me. Some females do not feel comfortable doing that and will go to managment instead. I do not need to be hugged and comforted or told every aspect of...

    Sometimes a Little Bit of Encouragement Goes a Long Way

    Bill I think that your training environment is awesome. I kinda of think of it this way. Sometimes it just takes a few supportive words to inspire you, just think sometime in the future you will be able to pass it on.

    First negative feedback on self-defense seminar for girls

    I think that being a parent, especially in this day and time, it would be a great advantage to instruct their girls on basic self defence. They should be instructed as to who a stranger is and what types of touching are appropriate or inappropriate. Who to tell if someting 'bad' happened, and...

    Hallmarks of a Good TKD School

    Some of the things that I would notice or want to see. A clean environment with no obvious issues that could cause injury. How the students respond to the instructors and how students respond to each other. The classes are run in an efficient manner that every one is getting an equal share...

    Bodies on the asphalt

    Manny, Your story brought a tear to my eye. I am hoping that this situation resolves it's self as quickly as possible. It is bad enough that you and your wife have to deal with this, but having children as witness is just horrible.

    Another Human Foot Washes Ashore

    I agree with Flea. Why on earth would anyone want to keep up with dismembered feet. This is a foot fedish gone way wrong.

    Taekwondo - red the winning colour?

    When judging you are to put the Red selector in your right hand and the Blue selector in your left hand. Since most people are right handed, maybe the reaction time is better, more consistant between the corner judges, with the red opponents selector than than the blue. Just a thought

    East Coast Earthquake

    I am in NC and it shook the building slightly. If you were setting still you felt it if you were up and moving around not so much.

    Losing my mojo

    Flea, I remember from some of your posts, from way back, how uncomfortable you felt when you first started training. I am so excited that training has moved from something that, at times was overwelming, to something that is so relaxed that you feel that you are "loosing your mojo". I have...

    Borders Forced to Close All Its Stores

    Now I am old school. I do not even have a computer at home or a lap top. I purchased a Nook not to long ago and I love it. The Nook that I have has a 3g network so you do not have to have a computer or wireless stuff. I like the simple fact that if it is late in the evening and you finish a...
