    Documentation of Classes

    That's interesting! I've found a few software programs I'll probably try, however, if your program keeps track of attendence, and can be suited for individual organization needs, than I'd definitely be interested! I'd definitely be up for brainstorming or idea sharing, and I'd be very...

    Documentation of Classes

    Yeah, I'm guessing very very Instructors do this!!! Which is why I posted it on the forum just to see. (figuered- what the heck?) We are doing quite well with the analysis, we started this back in 2005 and it's worked quite well. Because we go (or are suppose to go) 6 days a week, for 1-2...

    Is the Bible 100% truth?

    True! I just was questioning if it would offend some of the more fundamental extreme christians as to rather or not the bible was real?

    Is MMA A Martial Art?

    Well I've seen most of these forums and posts, which is why I can disagree! The conversation always seems to pit system against system, and then always refers to some example of MMA. Although, often it makes for an interesting discussion on what exactly constitutes a "Martial Art" no matter...

    Documentation of Classes

    Just out of curiosity, how many Instructors/School Owners document every class? (In other words, how many Instructors/School Owners, write up reports on every class? Reports such as what lesson was taught, what techniques were done, injuries, incidents, sparring sessions, etc??) How many...

    Keeping your hands up.

    I've also found that usually it's personal preference!

    Is MMA A Martial Art?

    I agree to a point! However, just for the record: I have seen those very questions posted on various TKD, Judo, Karate, and Jiu-jitsu on other Martial Art discussion forums. Usually you actually get some pretty interested comments and opinions.

    Is MMA A Martial Art?

    Possible difference between UK and USA mentality? :) At least in my area, that seems to be the mentality of all of the MMAers! And yes, I do find most of the people I encounter who are MMAests points of view 'entertaining'. By that meant the attitude approach of "if I watch this, do this, then...

    Keeping your hands up.

    I've been involved with Olympic Style and Combat Tae Kwon Do for several years. Let me add this: 1. Keeping the hands up during olympic style sparring, actually enables more speed in the kicks. It's almost as though you increase velocity and speed by not having your hands up. Although, it does...

    NEED HELP...please!

    First off, let me know reinforce my first reaction. There is no 'true' substitute for an actual Instructor!! It's like telling someone "I wanna learn how to swim to save people". Sure you could possibly self teach yourself on how to swim, and possibly on how to save someone. But isn't it safer...

    Is MMA A Martial Art?

    Basically, It was punching each other using 'boxing' gloves!! Nothing ever came from it!

    Apparently, we all fell for your little game! :P Uh, with regards to the 'retarded' mention, I'm not quite sure on that one! :)

    NEED HELP...please!

    Seriously, DON'T BUY A GUN!!! Unless you wanna spend the rest of your life in federal lockup! I should've added in the original post I put concerning this, that I was merely kidding!!! You were asking or requesting difficult things to understand, so I (jokingly- of course) added that just to...

    Is MMA A Martial Art?

    That's just kind of the ironic thing, my school didn't have a sanction or "supervised" boxing club of any recognition. It was basically a bunch of high school guys getting together (illegally I might add, at least with the school) with 90% of them having no 'formal training' what-so-ever. And...

    Good point! DO NOT BUY A GUN!!! I take it back!! Buy a puppy, a pitbull! ;) J.K.

    Is MMA A Martial Art?

    We had a so called 'boxing club' at my school. Alot of guys with no formal training would duke it out during lunches and breaks. They thought they could "Rocky" eachother until the bell rung! Amazingly no one ever got seriously injured, although we did have quite a few bloody noses!

    NEED HELP...please!

    OIC Now, after I read this a few dozen times... (literally) So, you don't like grabs, you don't like getting hit, you wouldn't mind acrobatics, don't like boxing, and need something with alot of techniques? Sounds like you've pretty much ruled out any form of Martial Arts! 1) A majority of...

    NEED HELP...please!

    My advice is either obtain a dog, mace, or a gun! And I'm not sure what exactly your asking for? Sure, books, dvds, and other materials can SUPPLEMENT your training. But are by no means the fast approach to being able to defend yourself! Only training with a suitable and preferably qualified...

    Is MMA A Martial Art?

    *In Bold* I will add this, I believe (again in my own opinion) that in order for Martial Arts to be called Martial Arts, it needs to have three elements attached, the physical, mental (philosophy), and spiritual components. When you break down 'Martial Arts' you have literally translating into...

    Is MMA A Martial Art?

    I've seen it, especially with newer systems 'popping up' nowdays. I've seen some of the older systems (mainly individual instructors, claiming to represent those systems) who have taken the 'newer systems' into question and deciding what is is and what it is not!

    Is MMA A Martial Art?

    Agreed! It it virtually impossible to combine complete systems, although (for the record) I do know several MMA's who claim to have done so. Are you referring to fighting system as in 'combat' or fighting system as in 'sport'?

    Is MMA A Martial Art?

    Let me 'edit' this and ask then, what constitutes a Martial Art? What makes a Martial Art, a Martial Art? Or Mixed Martial Art, Mixed Martial Art?
