    Static Stretching vs Dynamic Stretching for kickers

    Dynamic stretching only gets you so far, and its better for a warmup to get into your normal range. As we have been having excessive heat with a index well over 100, our air conditioning once again failed. So we did our normal 15 rising front stretch kicks and side stretch kicks and pushups...

    I just gotta share this...

    Good for you! Next you can try the double spin heel, same positions or spin heel then jump spin heel. One of our black belt tests is to do a jump spin heel-2 boards then an immediate speed break spin heel to a board sitting on the ground. My problem with doing alot of these double spins is the...

    TKD demos

    We have a 1st dan who does a backhanded thumb strike to a concrete patio block --he's tough and built solid. The master a couple of years ago did a quadruple front kick to four balloons held alternately left and right. He had put powder in them so that the audience could see the puff of...

    Traveling by air in the US?

    I noticed that finger nail polish - acetone is not on the list. I guess that is okay to take on. Probably not. One time my husband and I were searched three times since we had changed our itinerary by getting off a plane which was allowing deplaning due to a broken engine. I had a small...

    Cortisone shots

    I missed the reason why he has had chronic pain... maybe if he were to stop doing what is causing it? I know simplistic but sometimes occupations don't allow you to just stop keyboarding or assembly. I had to stop reading books in contorted positions and stop breaking cement, least more than...

    When I'm 64 is here!

    I remember when I bought that on a 45 when it first came out. How depressing that he is 64 now, and I'm not far behind. TW

    Who're you?

    I am it, her, the one ~ holder of adoration for four eyes of dogs especially when I set them free in the back yard. But how exalted can I be when I have to pickup the poo, clean the poopy butts and keep them bathed, brushed, trimmed, fed, exercised and happy. Who's got who wrapped around their...

    Mosquito Ringtone Adults can't hear

    It just sounds like computer sounds or maybe I didn't hear it. But my puppy is practically sitting on my laptop half asleep and he didn't seem to hear it either, nor my other dog or my birds who always react. On the other hand, the high tone dog bark silencer gets their attention at the lowest...

    Cortisone shots

    I've had a few, separated by many years, for shoulder problems. It provides pain relief so that the area heals but is mainly to reduce inflammation. It prevented actually going into a frozen shoulder where you can't use anything with the arm. It is not meant to cure the pain or the problem. I...

    Age/goals question

    I started TKD at 46, got my 1st dan at 50, 2nd dan at 53. Most of the noon group (and some in evening) are 45+ men and women. I guess I'm the oldest at 56 since the 70ish guy stopped due to his back. I conducted a medium bag workout the other day, mostly 20-40 age group guys and they thought I...

    Poomse

    I guess I will be learning the Pal Gwe's too. I know the TaeGueks through Kumkang and the Chang Hon forms through Po-Eun, but now even though I won't be testing for 3rd, he is beginning to teach me with the now 3rd dan. Is there a manual for these forms? I would like a reference as I learn...

    Endurance class

    I call endurance class, kickboxing. Non-stop kicking combinations on the bag with minute breathers doing boxing combinations. Master asked, did I kill em. No, I didn't, since there were two yellow belts but it was an endurance routine. TW

    You know you're from Minnesota when...

    Came across this list about the uniqueness of M'sota. Feel free to add your variation on your state. TW You know you're from Minnesota when.... The weather is usually 80% of your conversation. When you say "down south" you're referring to Iowa. Snow tires came standard on your car...

    Extremes of temperature when Training

    Yah, you betcha. In M'sota, it was 95-97簞 last week. This week 85, but now we have a cold front, 60-65簞 absolutely perfect training temperature. They have a saying here, that if you don't like the weather, wait a moment and it will change. We have heat and airconditioning but neither work...
