    Utility of an Independent Instructors Only Organization

    Years ago I was part of NAPMA. I believe MAIA took them over. They provided some good teaching ideas and lots of marketing stuff.

    The investigation would consist of the poster asking the instructor what he asked here. This would alert the instructor to the potential of something going on. The instructor would then ask for a meeting with the students and their parents. While the immediate action would be to prevent...

    I think it incumbent upon the instructor to investigate further both for the person who posted here as well as the others in class to make certain there is not a larger problem that could affect all. Agree no further justification is needed if they do not want to work with him - that is enough.

    Looking for Peoples take on being avoided in class

    I think the instructor needs to ask them "Why" in order to get more information or perhaps consult with them and their parents.

    Knowing I had some top notch competitors with few flaws I noted where they started their pattern and if there were no other deciding factors the one closes to their startingg point would win. They were seldom "equal" in this factor. I cannot speak for others.

    Events I judge included: Specialty breaking, Individual Patterns, Team Patterns and individual sparring. It's been a long time but I don't recall for certain if I judged team sparring. Pretty certain I did not ever get assigned to power breaking. Judging has changed a lot. from simple...

    Post # 652 you state " Not "often" . "When you retired in 2004 from ITF judging, they were undefeated in forms since they first entered in the 80s" So are you now claiming undefeated in "TEAM" forms and sparring or just forms? Of course you know why "... they first entered...

    Sir, are you no changing some comparison, however irrelevant from Pattern to Sparring competition? Not just these days. I know the Russians won team sparring in 1997, (I know because I was there. ) There may have been other team sparring winners as well. No point in checking on it. and NK...

    Sir, - Again - comprehension issues. When a government funded program allows recruitment of thousands or 10's of thousands of top notch athletes and full time training, the ability to develop "Super Humans" is much easier than when you have self funded part time athletes who may choose a...

    Well, they one quite often. For those of us old enough to remember the Olympics when East Germany and other socialist countries dominated it's tough for amateurs to compete with Government sponsored systems where people are recruited by the 10s of thousands and their full time job is to train...

    I have no idea since I have been out of the loop since 2004 or so. Further, what if anything that might have to do with mistakes on a video eludes me. Also, since 2002 NK has been in it's own ITF that tends to skew things.

    I am credentialed as a "Class A" umpire and have judged world Championships in St. Petersburg Russia, -19967, Rimini Italy 2001, and a world cup in Orlando - I think it was 2002.

    Not sure exactly what you refer to. If you are comparing the black background video to how patterns are performed in the last few years at World Championships, with more recent and more current performances having a more pronounced / exaggerated up and down motion, then we are in agreement...

    I recall a time I said "Some work needed to be done" In reference to some pattern performances in a Video produced by NK, however that comment was not in reference to SW, but some technical issues. Additionally your comment wrongly assumes that every mistake a student would make...

    Sir, Considering how inaccurate your posts have been and issues with taking things out of context, unless or until you can provide proof of your claim as to what I allegedly said. I categorically deny I said with reference to SW that the North Koreans did not get it right.

    Sir, here is an example from the official videos produced under the supervision of General Choi. Horse / sitting stance punches appear at the beginning of the video. There are some examples where he punches from walking stance as well. I will leave it for you to comment if the hip moves in...

    You do not see the hip move? Perhaps since it is an hour and a half video you could provide the exact time stamp for the portion you refer to. There is a part at the 39 plus minute mark where he says "Not This" and shows excessive hip twist. Perhaps that is why you are confused. Overly...

    I do not believe I ever said that. I would like to see where I supposedly said that. Perhaps I mistyped like above where I typed "Perfumed" instead of "performed" or "Exclude" instead of "elude "

    Easy to misunderstand a book - particularly when using a 2 dimensional medium to describe a 3 dimensional activity. Heck, we did not understand the "Hooking Kick" in Ko Dang or the "Pick shape kick in Ju Che" until we saw it perfumed.

    This person kihaps at #17 so clearly an example of someone not concerned with following General Choi's parameters so the relevance excludes me. I guess if you paid attention to the video you would understand that.

    100% correct. sir. - A book cannot replace an instructor. We should all strive to be better than our instructors because hopefully we each in turn will have better instructors than they did.

    Sir, I don't know what you consider the "Norm" I consider it to be illustrated well, but not necessarily perfectly in the videos produced under General Choi's supervision (By Com Do) - the ones with the Black Background. I would first look to those for guidance instead of some random...

    Of note in the video is the hip moving (Twisting) in the same direction as the punch along with SW.
