There is no shame in being scared of spiders. :o
For those of us in the real world - have any of you tried those plug-in electronic repellers? This year they're on steroids and I need to bring out the artillery. Are they any good?
Alas, telling me to get a grip doesn't work.
For those of you who wear shoes for training, what kind do you use and do you rate them?
I tried the Nike In-Nae shoes, but didn't really get on with them, I didn't find them very comfortable. Otherwise I always used small brand ones.
I used to like the look of the Adidas SM-II, but am...
Keen to hear what you all think.
I can understand the logic of trying to clean up the industry, but I am not a fan of this. It's a means of making money.
When I did the compulsory training when it first came in, I think...
Anyone here attempted fixing a post to the ground using one of these, rather than digging a hole, or for when digging isn't an option?
Wondering how well it'll last, and whether it will 'give' correctly etc?
Has anyone here ever dabbled in this? Is it any good? Example here.
Main interest is the rehab of injuries. I'm also interested in its potential effects on flexibilty. Does it tone/build muscle well or is it a gimmick? I'd be buying for rehab, but if it is good for general...
I've been following the carefull deconstruction of this chap elsewhere and thought it was best left there. However I've just seen some of the books he is selling here:http://www.phrayapichai.com/news.php
It seems only fair to warn off the unwary. In military terms this chap is a complete...
I am keen to try some new kicking combinations for use with paddle type kick targets in my classes.
Any of you out there happy to share combinations that you use?
Thought it might make for an interesting thread.
Please help me! I have done a terrible thing!
I'm moving house this weekend and I borrowed a van. I may have had problems with vehicles from the same source in the past... Last words to me were "Please dont break it, we need it back working on Monday".
Easy. Until I fill up with diesel...
On 2nd April 1982 Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands.
Seventy-four days later the commander of British Land Forces sent this signal to London:
This is in memory of those who did what many thought was impossible, liberated a nation from a well dug in invader thousands of miles from...
In the new liarbor utopia :bs: that is Great Britain today; mace, tasers etc are banned. Despite even MPs getting mugged.
What does everyone make of this, with nothing else other than fisticuffs available, how do you rate the efectiveness of this kit?
Good evening all.
I am currently having to review my Tae Kwon Do regime as I am no loger able to maintain the arduos level I have in the past.
I have been looking for some kind of forms based exercise to supplement my training and recalled a karate master who attributed his success at...

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Can anybody provide me with details of the parts of a sword in korean?
I dont like calling it a tsuba for example in korean arts as I presume there is a korean term?
Thanks for any help.
Does anyone have a list of the forms originally taught at the Chung Do Kwan, and can recommend books/vids for learning them?
I'm aware the Pyong-Ahn forms were taught, would the thing to do be to look at the pinan/heian forms in karate materials? Any others? I know the jidokwan taught some...
I read an article recently, written by someone who has just attended the International Instructors Course at the Kukkiwon.
Apparently the Taeguek Poomse are changing, using sports science to reduce the stress on the body (seriously) and are even being re-numbered to better allow assesment of...
I'm sure this has been done before, so I apologise now.
Mid twenties Tae Kwon Do BB. Also needs hands for work!
I've just this week started using a makiwara to condition my forefist, backfist and ridge-hand. At the moment its just a bought one, on the floor, as I'm moving...
