    Ush, Thank you for that. Maybe I'll ask her about this kick - mikasuki geri - compared to what she is teaching us.

    THATS how we're supposed to round house kick?

    She even specifically said, only pivot if you have flexibility issues, not for power. I'm trying to understand why we're kicking like this, but its frustrating. I agree, that video is how you're supposed to kick. Thanks for sharing. I very much agree. Thanks for the input. This is a...

    THATS how we're supposed to round house kick?

    I've been taking Karate for around 3 years now, but had to leave my first school in order to go to college. I started taking a Shotokan Karate class at my college, and everything has been fine until my sensei starting teaching us the round house kick. How she wants us to kick is: Bend the...

    Philosophy or not?

    This is primarily what I mean by philosophy, making martial arts more than fighting. Thanks for the post, great quote as well. I couldn't agree with you more. Could you, or someone else perhaps, go more in depth about this?

    Philosophy or not?

    Does your teacher, or for those of you that are teachers, is philosophy about your style, or maybe life in general, something that is explained / explored at some point in your class? Likes/dislikes, concerns, etc.?

    OnlyAnEgg, I'm glad you're enjoying your training so much! For what its worth, after reading this thread I've become very excited about training Eagle Claw kung fu near where I live. Although its not the same style, I hope it'll be as beneficial / enjoyable as what you've been doing. Keep us...

    Korea Bound

    More power to ya man. I want to do the same, only with a focus on Hapkido. I don't know of any schools, but I doubt it will be hard to find a decent school over there. Good luck and keep us posted.

    Point Sparring

    Thank you all for your input. Just to clarify, when I said point sparring I was referring to the style of stopping after contact/each point.

    Point Sparring

    What is your take on point sparring? Does it develop reflexes? Quick hands, quick feet, quick movement? Is it impractical? Does it teach martial artists to try and get one hit in and think the fight is over? I do not like point sparring, I think there are better ways to train than to...

    Karate was not designed to fight? I thought it was. Back in Okinawa the Japanese were not allowed to have weapons so they trained open hand combat, as well as training weapons they could get their hands on.

    why so many seem to dislike MMA

    I agree with you for the most part. Theres a good chance that the majority of martial artists that dislike "MMA" feel that way because of their teacher or peers. Others may not like it because martial arts are supposed to be for self-defense, and having MMA practitioners doing it to get paid...
