    *WARNING - LINKS TO PAIN AND INJURY* how is this possible?

    I have to admit that is some of the grossest stuff I've seen.

    The Martial Arts Mentality

    I would bet that the guy talking in the video was the kid who got his head dunked in the toilet.

    who have you met?

    I used a urinal next to The Undertaker. Several years ago there was a professional wrestling event in St. Louis. I was at a night club that evening and I guess after the show alot of the wrestlers decided to go to this same night club. I used the restroom and The Undertaker and a few more pro...

    youn wha ryu

    The Grandmaster Han schools are all over in my area. I too am from missouri. I do not mean to be disrespectful, but I am going to be honest. When people on this site begin talking about "McDojos", these are the schools that I think of and make my comments on. You will never be allowed to...

    Art most commonly trained in for high-risk careers...

    I would say that whatever the art may be, it most likely has a lot of joint lock and takedown techniques.

    McDojos and 'The Worst Martial Art': A Controversial Question

    In my opinion, a "McDojo" may be doing the same moves as a "legit" school, and they may have shady business practices, but where the "McDojo" really falls short is the lack of theory and application in those moves. The instructor at a "McDojo" may have a legit black belt, but that does not...

    what was the point of that?

    We do something in our class, I think it is called Bunkai. Don't remember the name exactly, but we'll take a couple of moves from a kata and with a partner try to figure out what the application of the moves are. It is interesting to see all the different interpretations. We were told on a...

    help locating a grappling school

    Ok the fact that you found those in roughly less than a minute makes me feel really stupid. But I swear I searched for a couple hours and came up empty. Maybe I need to take some web searching lessons too. Thanks for the help.

    help locating a grappling school

    I'm looking for a place near the St. Louis area. I have seen some websites where you can type in where your looking and it will locate the nearest martial arts school for you, but I can't seem to locate any grappling schools. I assume there out there, because there are amateure MMA events in...

    help locating a grappling school

    Could someone direct me to a web site that could help me locate a reputable grappling school? I am interested in Jiu-Jitsu, but Judo would be good too. I've tried searching but am not coming up with much.

    Cross-Training JKD with....

    How can it be contradictory? My understanding of JKD, according Guro Inosanto, is that it's all about "cross-training". JKD isn't necessarily an art but a concept. It is a way to use whatever you know and transition fluidly within any style. Perhaps I'm wrong but it seems "cross-training"...

    Are you doing the one you wanted?

    When I first started (years ago) it was because of circumstance. As it turned out it is a place that I would have chosen even if I had other choices. My instructor is very knowledgable in many arts and incorporates them into our classes. When I say knowledgable I mean he has studied with many...

    Parent With A Question

    I would say, take him to the tournament and see how he does. I'm glad you're excited about his progress. I also have a 7 year old son who loves his karate class. I am proud of what he does. He may not be the best in his class but somebody is always the best. Right now your son has an...

    Floor washing?

    Perhaps it's just too much for the instructor to do alone and has used this as a way to get the housekeeping done without taking up alot of his time. Maybe?
