    The "Martial" In Martial Arts

    In the past, martial arts served to defend yourself or any other persons you wished to defend. Or to defend your country on the batllefield. That was the purpose, to be a WARRIOR. There you had dozens of highly trained martial artists - warriors ready to kill you. That created a need to be...

    The State of Karate

    I agree with him. I understand it's an art, but let's not water it down so much. Karate and Taekwondo are first on my mind.

    Facebook, Myspace And Other Social Networks

    I think it's not social networks to be guilted, rather people them self. Well social networks are just one more tool for idiots which do the stuff mentioned in first post. They are very great for that since they are bed at keeping data private, and almost everybody have them, and also there is...

    Straightening fist - i need help

    Well then i wan't work on straightening fists in the way i planed. I will just do push ups on knuckles, or sometimes hit a heavy boxing bag with barefists. Yes, we all feel cool when hiting the rice or sand, but seems like doing it without proper medical supervision, is dangerous. After all, i...

    Do you like to train alone?

    Maybe i didn't mentioned, offcourse it's non sense to train alone only. Most of the training should be in your club with your master and people. But i simply love sometimes to go in the nature, perform pretty hard training, i likes katas or yoga or basic tkd tehniques most, and then, sit...

    Having a first fight

    Hi! You are probably very excited before your first fight! About eating, depends when the macth is. But however, fighting with full stomach isn't good idea, but also isn't fighting hungry. If u usually drink coffe, don't drink it two or three days before macth, so you adrenalin will raise. If...

    Any Seen Black Belt the Movie?

    I think because in that training he found what he wanted, and he couldn't have that while his master were alive - fighting to kill, and to gain control, to be victorius and the best.

    Principles of self defense

    Hi! I didn't study psychology! Neither my master teached me that - i learned it by myself, on my own interests (well i love my master, but his teachings isn't everything, obviously!). Next year i am starting with college, Kinesiology. There i will have anatomy, psychology, bio mechanics of the...

    How to protect from injuries when doing strong sparring?

    You have no reason to feel embarassed! If someone laughs to you or something similar, because you wear less or more protective gear, they should be embarassed! And also, if somebody really laughs or underestimmate you because of it, it says a lot about them - maybe you should think about...

    How is your Hapkido ground game?

    We still didn't learn much of Hapkido ground game. Since we in club grappling pretty much, i had to "develop" my own ground tehnique. It's made of biting, tweaking on some vital and sensitive points, and wringing on throat or eye gauging. Dirty and not Hapkido, but works :ultracool

    FMAT: Empty your cup...so that you can see your board-breaking skills won't help you here.

    Maybe he is one of the guys who made 2nd degree mostly by performing forms. I know pretty much people of 1st and 2nd degree who has no any idea about fighting or self defense, or they have stupid ideas about it (e.g. breaking stick?!!?). And, even if i train taekwon do myself, i must admit this...

    MMA as self defense

    Chris Parker, your posts always are argumented and true tellings. I think also (at least i think that we think the same) that martial arts can be great for self defense, but it's not their focus, and they are not designed for self defense, they are designed for fighting. There are systems...
