My Dear friend could you let me know best place to put that I was just talking about verbal training meaning, meaning instead of training with bodys we sat down and trained with our hearts and minds.
Very good question my friend, I very interesting in our federation we have lets say 8th Dan that quits one federation an joins ours. I think I covered this a little but we do this since they are high level martial artists then we make room for them in our federation and give them a Honor Rank of...
Today was interesting day at one of the places I teach at, in my school we teach Hapkido, Taekwondo, and Korean Swords Gumdo. My Master Allen Hughes we sat down I usually work on ground Defenses in that Master Class having 4-6 Master Dan Black Belts but today just me and Allen and his wife...
This is a interview with Ricky Lundell hope you like it! Please tell me what you think.
I look at the Dan System like this:
1st Dan you know the basics. This is the start.
2nd Dan you start having students and work on being a better teacher. I feel you can if look at it like this put letters together.
3rd Dan you start having Black Belts and start understanding the basics and...
Grandmaster Ahn Hyun Whan is a 10th Dan in the Juntong Musil Federation in Hapkido, I'm not sure what his Dan rank is in Taekwondo. I could find out though, he is a 7th Dan Jyck Tuki/ Thai Boxing.
This is his linage
Choi yung sool
Lee, Yong Ho
Ahn Hyun Whan
I agree and again saying that really honor kind of thing. It is long years of work, then other people standing up and saying "your this rank". Then the paying of money is little hard for me at times since im getting into the not just a hundred of $ but a few hundreds of $ adding up to thousands...
Let me break this down for ya, I think things at times look right but I see things in words and such way ahead of other words. I mix things up.
I'm saying people should not use words to say anything that is mean or have a bad course of action. It really just is Karma and should be made only to...
I understand and really feel not issue at all my friend it is at times just easy to say things and they get out of conduct and really are just words. I just feel that if others would just care and love one another it really does not matter. I find alot of times since I teach alot of self defense...
I have say something...
First my friends the way look at a black belt is to look at what he does. I think and really don't care what people think is saying this or that about if someone is or has some kinds of paper work saying he is a black belt. I care if he is a true martial artist, I feel...
Too bad Manny I wish I was around I hope he works somthing out for ya, and works few other classes to teach. I have stuff like that happening in my one class I have a family that cant go on mondays as late as I teach. I changed my time a little earlyer to help them out.
I think it is very important to train doing similar stuff in self defense for sure. I have to say about Handles and grips there is grips in no gi ju-jitsu it is just not exactly the same. It is the joints that are grips any place the bones come together is a joint and a grip.
I wanted to post some youtube stuff. I wanted to know if it is ok and if anything I do is wrong so I can fix any mistakes. It is all about helping others in some kind of idea or concept as in falling down from a bully, kick ideas, what if bully is thrown you down and going to hit you how to...
I agree and thanks for your input.....
I had say something about this I use to fight alot and many people, I know even my Grandmaster is Ahn, Hyeon Whan. He is a 10th Dan in Hapkido, was the Heavy Weight Asian Kyuk Tu Ki (Muy Thai) Champion, and holds high ranks in other arts including...
I feel and train at times with large coats and in normal clothing. To try ideas on teq's using real clothing. In Ju-Jitsu us also no gi stuff but at times just train in shorts and t-shirt.
Just a few things
Thought I would add some times we also train going to like Hikes and at times find...
My Friend and Hapkido Brother,
First of I feel that your instructor is great teacher and you should really work hard and get to your Black Belt. You bring honor to him and your self in working hard and getting your black belt. I have seen alot of good black belts that never have other black...
