    Black belt on your resume?

    This is one I tinker with myself. If your applying for security or a bouncer position then It's a plus, but some people might be intimidated by it. On the other hand it does show that you consistently showed up on time for something which adds to your credibility if your trying to prove a...

    Lawful use of force or excessive?

    Most people don't know there are a lot of politics in police work, and if the guy was right or wrong really doesn't matter. If the higher ups decide it looks bad for the department he'll lose his job and have a hard time getting a new one.

    Yeah I never seem to get around to that lol. Anyway I'm up north in michigan. Nice to meet a practitioner of mu duk kwan. I was a judakwan guy before I left at illdan. Now I kinda do a mix of stuff. JKD concepts, a little judo and BJJ I picked up here and there, and some Filipino stuff that I'm...

    is there a less complicated form of jujitsu

    Every martial art is simple but effective. Martial arts do not work like in the movies. Out of all the kicks you learn in TKD there about three that you will actually use in a fight. However there are an unlimited number of uses for those three, and even two or more versions of those that you...

    How To Shrimp

    You are a good instructor. I'm looking into doing BJJ myself at the moment. Any tips on how to find a good instructor? I know what to look for in a MA instructor but every art is different.

    A positive thread

    Yeah I suppose so, but sometimes it not about the destination, but how you get there.

    anyone here ever tried to do a kata with their eyes closed?

    I have tried it a few times but only with poomse I was very familiar with. I did okay until I had to do the ones with jump kicks. It is kinda fun to try, though you will fall a lot lol.

    Congrats. The first test is always the worst one because you never know what your getting into, but you have taken the first step down a long road and should be proud. Best wishes to you on your road to shodan.

    Strength vs Technique

    I don't do BJJ though I have dabbled in it a bit and really like it so I thought I would poke around the board a bit. In any martial art this question is relevant. This however is not an easy question. Strength is important no doubt. Without it there would be no technique to begin with as some...

    I can see where your mad and it is somewhat misleading of them, but there probably is not a lot you can do unless he has a no compete clause in his contract for classes. Personally I think that since you feel so strongly about it you should teach. Who cares if you make money at it? That is only...

    Tae-Kwon-Do rules?

    Olympic TKD considers any foot tech to be superior to any hand tech. Blocking is allowed, but it's not worth your time in the sport. It works like a super fast chess game. Basically if you do not attack first then you must counter. The best way to do so when kicking is to move out of the way...

    An employment seekers warning

    I recently called on a job in the paper. It was listed by an employment agency called employment one. I am in no way slandering them with this as it is just my personal experience with them. I called and they asked about contact info and all that like agencies like these do. They explained how...

    A positive thread

    Is there really a best self defense martial art? This is a question that many people have and that many martial artists argue over. I would like to hear what the community has to say, but first here are my thoughts on the matter. There really cannot be a best martial art, because each art has...

    How do you train for the psychological portion of a confrontation

    I'm sorry man but to me this whole training from a state of fear sounds like total BS. Their is no way in hell that is going to prepare you for the adrenaline, or really anything else. The only thing I can think of that this would do is create a train of thought that will show up in a time of...

    Use of Force Law

    I don't know about ohio but here in michigan the castle law which I refer to as the make my day law works like this. If someone is in your home (uninvited) in the middle of the night you don't have to ask questions you can just shoot them. There is a catch however. They have to be facing...
