    Rmur mill about Poomsae

    To throw my 2c in, I have more years in tkd than Exile but given the quality of his posts since I have been reading this board, I would bow to his opinion on most matters. In relation to the original post, I have been...disappointed... with a lot of the official kukkiwon changes of late. If...

    martial art as a hobby ?

    If you are paid to do martial arts, then you are a professional. If not, then you can classify it in whatever manner you want. People don't like words, such as "hobby" or "amateur", because there is a connotation that it means "I have no skill" or "I am not serious about this". I like to...

    Report: U.S. 'preparing the battlefield' in Iran

    Recently I have been wondering if Bush, McCain (et al's) constant confusing of Iraq with Iran in media interviews is a slip-up or deliberate means of associating one with the other.

    Japan Imposes "Fine On Fat"

    It's true, though not as severe as it sounds. Some Japanese companies took the same approach to their employees learning english some years ago. I am personally all for it.

    Karate VS. Tae Kwon Do

    Bush never lied to us about Iraq

    Bush didn't lie...he just "exagerrated" the truth right? Bottom line is that the buck stops with him - the president (and his adminstration) assumes responsibilities for the country's decisions.
