    I had one of these; .........head instructor was one of these self proclaimed grandmasters. SO the guy would come up with these bizarre techniques and everytime a student would ask him, what good is it? or How effective is this? He would reply with: "Its not for you to ask questions".

    why train unusable techs

    As strange as tactics in practice sessions may seem "unusuable", they serve a purpose as others posted. The main thing to understand is that which have actual fighting purpose and general training purpose.

    What would you do?

    I have a few students whom are "up" on age. They have a less "desire" for ranking or attending likewise to the younger ones. This is not a lack of motivation, but a different attitude or understanding on what THEY want out of their training/practice. If siad students do not disrupt any...

It isnt about being able to beat someone or use physical means. It is about knowing what to do and what not to do. It requires understanding of law, business, and...

    Why TKD is not effective for self defense and sometimes rejected

    In short, Ive seen TKD martial artists perform well and not so well, in bar room brawls, some leading into the street. It is not entirely the art. Versitility in many martial arts is the key.

    I had always said, and will always say, UFC is not so "ultimate". Under control and regulayed fighting, has hardly a bearing on street confrontation where each situation differs. I grow weary of grappling practitoners whom claim that most fights end pn the ground. Whereas my past...

    Why TKD is not effective for self defense and sometimes rejected

    So, the basis of TKD as used for defense is upon three factors; * Teacher Ability * Student Ability/Determination * Tactics used/taught/learned Is this correct?

    That's scary - wing chun guy getting belted video

    Yes, I have to agree that versitility is the best way. In a matter of fact, even TMAs were a mix during their era of introduction.

    Why TKD is not effective for self defense and sometimes rejected

    Well, my TKD instructor also taught Hapkido. There was a separate self defense curriculum. Will this still be considered as TKD?
