    Taekwondo in life: Looking for stories for a study

    How did you end up to having Taekwondo as part of your life? I began TKD in 1982 (at 14 years old) with my best friend. He was a natural athlete, and I was born with mild cerebral palsy. Most thought he'd stick with it and I'd give up quickly. He quit after 6 months, and I've been training for...

    Wait, MORE new Kukkiwon poomsae?

    They've introduced other competition poomsae in the past that never went anywhere. I'm not going to assume that this new poomsae experience will be a permanent thing.

    Sexual Allegations against the older Lopez brothers USA Today

    I've heard of allegations of sexual misconduct against Jean Lopez for many years, but not Steven. With this USA Today piece, it seems that they are being taken seriously, now. I don't know if these allegations are true. But I think they need to be investigated. Lopez brothers, Olympic taekwondo...

    Your instructor's instructor

    For Taekwondo students, how much do you know about your instructor's instructor? Do your instructor mention that person (what they were like, or even their name)? Have you met that person? I realize that not every instructor is an open person, or may want to say much about their instructor for...

    Old school kickboxers, how did you start?

    Old school kickboxers, how did you start?

    I came to full contact rules kickboxing as a student at the tail end of the excitement of it. I was a Taekwondo guy & loved watching PKA karate on ESPN in the 80s. I started FC kickboxing in 1994 (the year after UFC 1 & BJJ changed what people saw as the norm of fighting for money). I initially...

    Chung Do Kwan Certificate

    The U.S. Chung Do Kwan Association (USCDKA.com), of which GM Covert is a proud member of Chung Do Kwan. Also, Master Peter Miles is a fine member of the Chung Do Kawn. However, if you're merely looking for "insurance" and not to become the student of either of these fine masters, I doubt you...

    Stephen Thompson

    I judged several kickboxing fights Thompson had back when he a was teenaged amateur at the IKF Nationals in 2002. I remember what an incredible fighter he was then & was a polite & respectful kid he was. His father Ray was also an amazing guy. I'm so happy to see him do so well in the UFC.

    Koryo

    Looking over my notes, it was the 3rd hand arch, rather than the second.

    Koryo

    I've learned the kihap in 3 places over the past 30-odd years. 1) The 2nd Arch hand. 2) The 2nd front kick. 3) The knee break. It's hard to get used to the differences in what company I'm keeping at the moment.

    Sparring: not technique against technique, but mind against mind

    Just continue to try new things & analyze what happened during the sparring (not just what you did wrong or what the opponent did right). Not everyone has the same strengths or weaknesses in their sparring. If you can leave your ego at the door, you can learn a lot and grow from the experience...

    Sparring: not technique against technique, but mind against mind

    Give yourself some time & permission to learn & make mistakes. You're proving in what you've written that you're thinking through what's happening when you're sparring.

    Pregnant Yak-TKD take 2

    The improvement is noticeable. This is going to sound odd, but try to relax as you throw your techniques. It takes practice, but breathe in through your nose & out through your mouth as you throw techniques. Take care of your knee, too. Hopefully the doctor can schedule a repair soon. Looking good!

    The change of fraternity in Taekwondo

    For those who don't read Korean, the first 2 say "Kyung Hee University" & "Yong In University." The 3rd says "Korea National Sport University." So, in Korea, you're seeing university affiliation listed, instead of kwan affiliation, Jaeimseu. From what you see would you say university connection...

    The change of fraternity in Taekwondo

    This is something I've noticed that is happening that I wanted to share. I'm not saying it's necessarily a bad thing completely. But a shift is happening. Since the 1940s Korean Arts have had the Kwan system. Loyalty to one's instructor and to one's Kwan was very important. With the advent of...
