    Last Point-Style Competition Footage of zDom

    In support of Mr. Slinkard's trying out a new tournament format (for us, well, for over the last 20 years anyway) and having black belt sparring immediately follow the opening events (black belt form, black belt board breaking) rather than being the last event of the day, I came out of...

    Small sample of Moo Sul Kwan hapkido

    Not necessarily perfect examples, but these should give SOME indication of what Moo Sul Kwan hapkido (and the recently-added Pre-hapkido) is like. These ARE only demos, so they were "first take is whatcha got on tape" type situations, warts and all. Also, there are a couple of things that may...

    My last board breaking competition

    Came out of retirement for one last tournament last year. I'm the guy on the far right. Punch, knifehand, front leg side kick (but view blocked by holders): http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=yS7AtkuAurs&feature=endscreen http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=OnSauDX6N6c&feature=endscreen...

    Recent Moo Sul Kwan hapkido demo

    Not me. But my girlfriend is the one doing the "one step" and "kicking" portions. This was just recorded with my iPhone. We also have a video recorder recording but I don't know if that has been posted yet. Part 1: Part 2:

    Unretired

    Due to circumstances which led me to believe it is necessary, I have come out of taekwondo retirement and accepted the position of head taekwondo instructor of the Sikeston Moo Sul Kwan effective Jan 3. I guess I'll be viewing discussions of TKD here in a different light, now having a vested...

    The Warrior's Way

    This movie turned out to be an incredibly enjoyable experience. I was expecting a Ninja Assassin-type movie but it turned out to be so much more than I was lead to expect by the trailers. Don't go hoping for martial arts film. It isn't, really. It has some "Crouching Tiger, Hidden...

    Ready for Zombies (check!) but are we ...

    ... ready for werewolves? I'm semi-prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse (figure I have at least what it will take to get me to Bigger Better Weapons once it starts, anyway ...) Vamps? Pft. Break up a few kitchen chairs to craft stakes with and I'm ready to go all Buffy on them (no offense to...

    Behind the Eye's Glass

    Angel, demon, god, ghost — whatever it is you call us really doesn’t matter. You have no more understanding of us than a fish understands a mountain lion. Your world is a part of ours, but ours ... ours is so far removed from yours you can’t even begin to understand what we...

    Soupy Sales

    At age 83. A bit before my time, but my dad still quotes bits from ol' Soupy. Too bad we don't have a "pie in the face" emoticon. I think he might have liked that ...

    The knee is NOT the best target for self defense

    Not sure I am decided on this opinion, but for the sake of argument I'm going to say: The knee is NOT the best target for self defense. Reasons: • They are roundish, narrow targets that are hard to get a solid strike on with forward moving linear kicks such as front, side or stomp...

    Subscription ending?

    No idea how I paid last time. That was like, two years ago. Can you please remind me how I paid last time? I don't THINK it was paypal because paypal doesn't remember me. I think I would like to continue to be a supporting member.

    Andy: (& anyone else) re: Safecarry

    Looks OK if you are standing (in the above pic) but what if you sit? Are there any safe, comfortable concealed rigs for a full-sized auto (i.e., SIG P226)?

    Yep, no longer a firearms virgin: I have purchased my first firearm. Here is a picture of what I went with (mine's at home, but this is pretty much what she looks like): http://www.sigsauer.com/Products/ShowCatalogProductDetails.aspx?categoryid=55&productid=201 After long contemplation...

    Keep useful, dump useless: curriculum or individual?

    When Bruce Lee said keep what is useful and dump the rest (to paraphrase, sorry I can't recall exact wording at this moment), do you think he meant eliminate it from the curriculum? Or do you think he meant on an individual basis? (i.e., learn it all and then only hone what works for...

    Look what WE made! :)

    My brother recently roped me into working on a short film with him for The 48 Hour Film Project competition in St. Louis. On the Friday evening the contest begins, all participants are given a character name, a prop and a line of dialogue that MUST be included in the film (presumably to keep...

    My NEW business! "Starlets Escort and Chauffer Service"

    So Lindsey getting busted AGAIN for drunk driving and cocaine got me thinking: this latest set of starlets obviously are in deperate need of some services. So I am going to rent myself out as a one-stop shop of services. For the low, low price of, I dunno, $100k per year plus room and...

    A peeve: the highjack of "jujutsu"

    (Gah.. typo in the title.. jujutSu I meant of course ...) Not pet peeve (I live in an apartment — not allowed to have pets ;)) but... It irks me how announcers have highjacked the word "jujutsu" (well, jujitsu actually...) to describe all grappling. "His jujitsu is really good ..."...

    Any pie fans?

    Yes, pie. I love pie. And I mean the kind of pie you eat, not pi used in math for circles. Chocolate cream, coconut cream, key lime, pecan, cherry (a la mode) I love 'em all. I am hard pressed to come up with a pie type that I DON'T like. I prefer pie to cake. What about ya'll?

    "Death Proof" segment of Grindhouse (*beware of SPOILERS!)

    DO NOT READ unless you have SEEN the film or want to completely SPOIL your experience. . . . . . . I'm seeing a lot of people thinking the second part of the "Death Proof" movie the part with the stunt girls in Tennesseee is AFTER the first part...
