    Alternating body building and martial arts

    So, yesterday was squat/leg day, and it coincided with a special 2 hour black belt class. I decided not to skip my strength training, 4x4 back squats at 225#, 5x4 log presses at 115#, 4x4 belt squats, and 4x4 overhead squats at 155#. I am hating the world today, but sometimes the soreness...

    GM Joon Pyo Choi

    I forgot to post this a couple of weeks ago. GM JP Choi of Columbus, Ohio passed away Sept. 13, 2021. He had one of the greatest side kicks I've ever seen in person. RIP GM Choi. Ohio TaeKwon-Do Pioneer Supreme Grandmaster Joon Pyo Choi (1945 - 2021) Passes Away - TaeKwonDo Times

    Alternating body building and martial arts

    I strength train (powerlifting/strongman/olympic hybrid-periodized program) MWF, Taekwondo MTTH. I need naps, but I feel they both compliment one another as far as fitness goes.

    I've spoken about this a few times on this site, but here is my experience and lineage: My KJN moved to the U.S. in the late 1960's. He was part of the Moo Duk Kwan that supported the unification process. He supported Olympic development early on, and he was involved back in the earlier years...

    Western influences on Karate development?

    The Sabaki Challenge is the only one that quickly comes to mind, as far as bigger events.

    Korean Masters from the 1960's and 1970's

    I have fond memories of all of those gentlemen. Back in the 80's and 90's our circles crossed frequently. I'm located in Marietta, OH. As soon as this pandemic starts to slow back down, I'd love to do some more martial arts focused travelling again!

    Andy is a pretty open and genuine person, and I've found that he offers his expertise where he can. I doubt he meant any disrespect other than those formsets have zero interest to him. I mean, I don't have any interest in them either, not because they are worthless, but I would rather spend my...

    It was a knee jerk response (and completely in jest), but I 100% agree about it going against what you are trying to teach, morally/ethically. I remember hearing stories in the early days of TSD/TKD, that there were many dojang "turf" wars in South Korea. I don't think things like that would...

    Rumble? HAHA! On a serious note, that is highly unprofessional.

    My sympathy, I'm sorry for your loss.

    Chuck Norris and TKD

    IMHO, the argument boils down to representing and passing on the art. A hobbyist practicing bits and pieces, represents little harm. However, practicing 50%, passing that knowledge on, misrepresents the art. You end up with people who trained 100% of what they were taught, and still only know...

    Chuck Norris and TKD

    I guess that does bring up a valid point. IF we consider Taekwondo a large-ish umbrella that encompasses a few different "versions," do we count the sport as part of the art? I assume schools that only practice sparring, are sport focused (which again, I would argue is a very small portion of...
