Bully s Powerful Apology to Student He Tormented 20 Years Later
I sure would like to see this kind of thing happen more often. I dealt with bullies all through my school years and I sometimes wonder what kind of people they grew up to be.
So the Coast Guard is sending me to the Alexandria Virginia region for the next four years. Anybody on here live in that area and willing to rent me a room to live in? I can pay a reasonable rental rate. It could be an incredible opportunity for someone who wants to learn Hapkido....
9 rules of Sin Moo
GM Ji Han Jae has presented this idea in a few different publications. Any Sin Moo folks in here? Does anybody have any actual experience with this? I haven't found any science on it yet in five minutes of Googling.
For those of you who enjoy watching Korean produced films I recommend A Company Man. It's a great action flick about a company assassin who has decided he want's to quit and the mayhem that ensues. The fight choreography looks very much like Hapkido to my eyes. As of this writing the movie is...
I've decided to really pick up my fitness this year. I made some serious inroads last year with dieting (lost 42 pounds). But I am still not content with my overall fitness and appearance. When I look in the mirror I think a healthier better looking fellow could be looking back at me, if you...
In the U.S. we elect Law Makers. They justify their existence by making law, it's their job, it's why we elect them. Yet in my humble opinion we seem to have too damn many laws. Do we have a suitable process for Deleting Laws? If not, do you think we need one?
If you could do away with any...
Mod's I am sorry I had no idea where to post this, feel free to move it wherever it's supposed to go.
My father is a pilot. We don't talk much but I love him. I learned this morning that he had to have an appendectomy in Hong Kong while on a layover there. I gather there has been many...
This week N. Korea launched it's first long range missile:

I've yet to own groin protection for sparring that was even remotely comfortable. Most were mildly distracting at best and some were just plain awful.
So I am in the market as it were. Who has a good cup story and a bad cup story? Which cup brand is best?
Though I am primarily a Hapkido man I have a great fascination with Wing Chun. Master Instructor Massengill has a school fairly close to my work:
Does anybody know anything about this school. As wing chun schools go, is this a good one?

Does anybody here have experience setting up insurance for a martial arts school?
What insurance companies are good, what companies aren't?
What kind of coverage is desirable?
Have you ever had to actually use the insurance?
How do the costs translate to your students?
Our new home has a nice pole barn nearby. I plan to partition a section of it off and make it into a Dojang.
I let my teenage daughter know that once it's done she can put her exercise equipment in the 'Dojang' if she wanted to. She says "it's Dojo dad, Dojang (in southern drawl) sounds...
Allow me to preface that I am a Chuck Norris fan. He's a good man and has become a media icon. I am not entirely sure how he feels about the fun Chuck Norris 'facts' that have gone viral but I LOVE EM!
So this thread...lets see who can put the last and best Chuck Norris 'fact'. They need not...
I've noticed on other martial arts forums some of the members are just downright rude. It seems so strange to me because in addition to learning martial arts we were always taught to be respectful to one another. Did your respective teachers instill these ideas in you like mine did with me...
With so many martial arts out there (thousands?)
has anybody ever heard of a style going extinct?
It seems to me that some
must have fallen by the wayside over the centuries.
I know many still
exist as parts of more modern styles of martial arts. So we will call that
Pai Mei Diet
I just wanted to share something that is working for me. Trying to shed a few pounds and I decided in addition to my exercise I would diet. But which diet? I finally decided to just kind of invent one for me and so far the results are promising. Nothing special about this diet...
