    how to master high kicks?

    What's the best way to master a high kick? I find them difficult. I can't get my leg to get to the level of my head. How do people do that? I haven't been back to my dojo, but I totally forgot how to get my leg that high that quick. I think it requires a lot of flexibility. Also, what is the...

    Should a Student Practice on His Own, or Not?

    A good dojo will have you practice all of the time. The more you practice, the better you'll get. It's just fact. At my dojo they give you a video to take home so you don't practice the wrong stuff. It might even be okay for them to put a video on. It's NEVER okay to tell a student NOT to...

    Chrome Book?

    But inexpensive stuff is usually worse quality than expensive stuff. Think of buying a gaming computer with super fast processors vs buying a normal netbook. A chrome book, according to what I've heard and maybe I'm wrong, is sort of like a netbook with a faster processor that puts everything...

    Chrome Book?

    It's good for Internet surfing and work. From what I hear its fast. It might be good for some media or note taking, but I think a lot of its capabilities are supposed to be limited. For travel I think it will work well. I take back what I said earlier.

    is Jun Chong TKD a legitimate TKD dojo for self defense?

    Also, has anyone been to CSUN? I'm going off to college in a few months and don't think I'll have Jun Chong there. But I will have another teacher who taught the LA Swat team for a year. His name is Hiroyasu Fujishima. He teaches karate and TKD. Has anyone heard of him also? I'm thinking of...

    is Jun Chong TKD a legitimate TKD dojo for self defense?

    I actually used to train there and on and off at different boxing studios. I just didn't heavily focus on one art. Now, I'm more willing to take one art more seriously. I think I'll go back to Jun Chong because if people call him "the best of the best" in reviews time and time again, how much of...

    is Jun Chong TKD a legitimate TKD dojo for self defense?

    I want to achieve self defense skills, but I also want it to be fun... I am serious about self defense though. I also wonder what you mean by "battle cry?" But I've always thought that in any martial art, a dojo/studio can be good or bad. What do you mean though, none the less, that when someone...

    is Jun Chong TKD a legitimate TKD dojo for self defense?

    That's why I specifically am looking at JCTKD and not just TKD. It's because I believe exactly what your saying. So then are ALL TKD dojos McDojos?

    how to recognize different martial arts in youtube videos?

    In terms of the basic martial arts, aikido, boxing, TKD, judo, hapkido, ninjutsu, karate, etc., how do I know the difference between one martial art and another in a youtube video? I mean, if I'm watching a fight between someone who knows Tang Soo Do and someone who knows TKD, how do I know...

    is Jun Chong TKD a legitimate TKD dojo for self defense?

    So theoretically, if I cross trained in TKD and boxing would that be better than doing just one? I mean, would that be an effective combo? Or should I just do boxing or TKD by itself?

    is Jun Chong TKD a legitimate TKD dojo for self defense?

    I wanted to sign up for TKD, and I really like Jun Chong TKD. However, I heard by some that TKD isn't a realistic means of self defense because a lot of the places teaching are "mcdojos." I've heard that ITF and WTF are slightly better, especially ITF. But I want to know about the dojo I'm...
