    Everything Happens For A Purpose

    THe INSTRUCTOR invited me back, not the student population though. They have to "live with it".

    Everything Happens For A Purpose

    I don't have an actual problem going there and looking at them and working hard to get their trust back. I think the message is getting lost here. The question is, should THEY have to put up with ME being back there?! I am an adult and can accept the fact that I was a jerk and an egotistical...

    Everything Happens For A Purpose

    Most of you have already looked at my name and dismissed this post because, in the past, most of my posts have included a lot of whining and complaining. For this, I do not blame you! Some short background: I studied Tang Soo Do for a few years and then quit because I wanted to try something...

    Good luck to everyone in your training! God-speed!

    Is It Possible?

    No school around here "pressure tests" any of the skills that you are taught anyway, outside of worthless point sparring.

    Loss of confidence!

    All of a sudden I am looking like a good forum member, aren't I? :P

    Is It Possible?

    Exactly my point and very well said! What belt color you are holding at that time means nothing!

    Is It Possible?

    I went for a month. The students that were there for years were doing the same thing that I was doing, but the difference was, they were doing it for years. They taught me the footwork and some combos and I hit some targets. This would have been rinse/repeat for the next up-teen years. The same...

    Is It Possible?

    Yeah, well, outside of getting into a frikkin cage with someone, there is no school around here that will risk being able to train with someone where it would actually benefit your time, speed, ability to take a hit, etc. I see your point, but I would not be able to find that type of training...

    Is It Possible?

    I've seen them. They are the same moves, just used a little differently. And in all honesty, the just look "prettier", the actual application and practicality of them dissipates more and more the higher the rank that you go, in my opinion. The basics kicks, punches, and other techniques look...

    Is It Possible?

    I agree! But after you obtain that black belt, you continue to perform the same techniques that you performed during your colored belt ranks, but in different patterns and forms. So, I can take what you are saying here as, an expert is someone that has performed the basic moves for years. Which...

    Is It Possible?

    That's pretty damn close to the exact point I was trying to make. The rest of my post was a question. Do all of the very knowledgeable people on these forums think that this would be enough?

    Is It Possible?

    LoL! What? The whole point of my post should point to the fact that I don't care about having a black belt!

    Is It Possible?

    I know....Oh My God, another Kaygee post, right? Seriously though....I don't want to catch a rash of crap for this, so I would appreciate an honest, open and MATURE discussion or I ask that you take your hateful comments elsewhere. I was wondering........if someone like me knows all of the...

    We Are A Black Belt School

    I looked for a while and could not find a hapkido,not only on Cotman avenue or in the surrounding areas, but in Philadelphia period! Thanks though.

    We Are A Black Belt School

    Yes! Hatboro is pretty far from me and I work in Horsham, so I would be driving to the same area twice right after each other and home for only about 30-45 minutes. That is kind of goofy, in my humble opinion. I will look around Cottman and Frankford, but that area is a little crazy to look...

    What is required to become a black belt at your school?

    I do not know how it is in my new school, because I just joined one earlier last week, but in my old school, all you needed to obtain black belt is: Be able to follow commands in Korean. (Although I have seen students do the wrong moves when told what to do but they still pass.) Do all basic...

    What is required to become a black belt at your school?

    Wow.......not sure how many people would actually be able to keep that up. As much as I love class, between work and kids and Honey To Do lists, there is no way I could make it to class 5 or 6 days a week. Not to mention, my body would probably rebel and shut down on me.

    Considering Tae Kwon Do

    But keep in mind, that there ARE Tae Kwon Do schools that train in the actual pure martial art that was taught in Korea. My Grandmaster learned it in Korea when he was posted over there in the army and has kept it pure during, which is now, the 46th year of his school being in existence. No...

    Considering Tae Kwon Do

    I took Tang Soo Do (A distant relative of Tae Kwon Do) for 2 1/2 years and just started taking Tae Kwon Do this past week. I love it! But the thing is, you have to find a school that teaches it the way YOU want to learn it! I know many people have already stated this in this post, but I feel...

    Opinion: How Far Is "Too" far?

    I appreciate almost all of the responses and advice here. I found a school, so this discussion is kind of pointless to take any further. Thank you for your time!

    warm up/stretching

    About 10 minutes, but this isn't enough for me so I usually stretch for about 15-20 minutes at home before I go to class.

    We Are A Black Belt School

    I do appreciate you taking the time to look for me. But I have either been to these schools above, or they are down town. (I out comments in red text) Down town Philly sucks! Have you ever watched Parking Wars? If not, watch an episode or two.
