    Self Reliance Illustrated

    Taurus PT111 G2

    I've recently purchased two of the G2's. I was looking for a good CCW gun for my wife and also something smaller than my off duty Glock 19 for when I needed to carry differently (IWB vs. OWB). I have had Glock 26's before and liked them quite a bit so that was my first thought. I discounted...

    TKD and self defense - a look at qualifications

    Through the years we've of course had numerous threads on TKD and self defense i.e. TKD is great for self defense or TKD sucks for self defense or TKD was never designed for self-defense etc. What I'd like to look at is the 'why' for a person's perspective on TKD. If 'you' feel that TKD is...

    Hapidoish Taekwondo Training

    Who's TKD training also incorporates Hakidoish techniques? To be more specific, not someone who takes both but rather someone that takes TKD exclusively but the training also encompasses things often associated with Hapkido such as locks, throws, chokes etc. If so, at what level does this kick...

    What is your main focus?

    In your TKD training, what is your primary focus for training? And what is the goal of your focus? For example, if you train in TKD for sport, is your goal to compete at some level? What is it about TKD that best facilitates you achieving this goal?

    My new position as the USG of the World Sport Karate Federation

    Receive great news that I was nominated for a position in the World Sport Karate Federation. I'm sure it was an oversight that I was nominated for a position 'in' the Federation rather than 'over' it as a whole. I'm sure it was the broken English. I'll clear that up when I take office. I...

    Development of a new art - question of legitimacy

    Throughout the ages, new arts have emerged from prior arts. The reasons are of course many and varied. In some cases, an instructor may have learned information outside of the traditional system and wished to incorporate the information into a new art. Perhaps he was encouraged by those...
