    Taekwondo Doesn't work on someone skilled

    I installed the weapons scoring system for the bombing range in Boardman Oregon. I worked as close as 1,000 feet from the target. The F-16 by the time I heard them I would have been dead rolling up gravel on the ground as they flew past. I had to fight to change the engineering on foundations...

    Being attacked in public with child

    Its easy for people to analyze from the couch but first while it turned out to be a real problem person to mental health and law enforcement here she was a total unknown to me and she followed from behind. The pathway is less than 3 feet wide icy and a steep incline from that. I was in front...

    Need advise on taser stopping large dog atacks?

    My dog is large and strong and I maintain him on a leash at all times. Problem is as many as 3 loose male dogs may run up on us at a time while walking. Most serious is a 100lb plus blue pit very aggressive that the owner refuses to leash and runs up on me with him and extremely hard to hold my...

    Being attacked in public with child

    We went to a movie at a Subway theater and on the way out we talked with 4 young girls who had been texting during the movie. All of a sudden a female came from behind started shouting obscenities and threatening. A worker from behind the sandwich counter told us all to leave. My wife was in the...

    Security Guards switching unarmed to armed..

    Given that now days anyone at any time can walk in heavily armed I would feel better that they were visibly armed as a deterrent You should have no problem talking with security or HR. In fact if it is not authorized you have a duty to do that because the person could be a problem..

    Advice on Back Surgery

    Well started the thread on September 8th, started the serious problem on August 8th. It has taken until October 10th to get MRI and opinion of a Spinal clinic which only manages pain by Epidural's and now an Osteopathic clinic doing Neuro Surgery. The bottom line is L4 is way out of line with...

    Preferred weapon choice

    Well you should be getting some but still define demo in the DoJang DoJo or self defense. I love the Sai chrome finish with spot lights or even better Tai chi Long Sword real metal not the tin foil swords. Just an amusing note people who have beginner skill trying to do 3 section staff can be...

    Some more thoughts on "anti grappling".

    Well just a quick opinion hear on the you tube video: First a lot of fights to go to ground but why resort to going there first? That position on the ground only escalates the fight and it is far from over! Also what if a second or multiple people are standing by to kick you and what ever? You...

    T.K.D. is dead

    Yes your right and punching in most cases is a lost art in TKD and hard to see refs even after instruction to score it was not done. Mainly because punching was so week. The Olympics is a money machine with different goals from that of traditional MA and has proven to not be the huge windfall...

    T.K.D. is dead

    All the E gear and computer scoring would not be needed at all if TKD fighting was taken back to its full contact origins. It was always obvious who won the match one person was down or could not continue. It rarely went to points. Can you imagine needing electronic scoring in a MMA fight? How...

    As soon as spring hits that's June for us when roads are open we head for mountains and climb around. My dog in back he loves to slide down glacier snow on his belly and climb up rocks.

    In support of TKD

    It pains me when people try to put TKD in a box or jar? It is everything like life applicable in every application from work, education, relationship's,healing, and all forms of competition more than 40 with fighting just one piece. Dedication to your self, family, community and country with a...
