    Tae Kwon Do college sport?

    I think it would be hard for most colleges to have any real scholarships available. Seems that the preference goes to the sports and generate money first, then your womens activities (generally do not generate all that much in profit) then the feel good sports - finally you have the chess...

    1st Dan Testing Fee

    I'm (Snohomish TKD) at $75 for Rec Black belt (Jr. Belt) and $200 for 1st Dan. And that comes with Hwa Rang TKD certification. I know it's not as big as an WTF/KKW cert but it's good enough for my students - because I say so. Like my instructor says I'm a 5th Dan, and that's good enough for...

    Compared to your instructor, are you......

    I'm much less strict, I grew up in a dungeon dojo and had that type of massive pushup spar till you puke and bleed instructor. Can't do that anymore and have a successful school.

    Street efective TKD

    I like to work on muscle memory so I react without having to think too much.

    If you could create a form.....

    Mine would start with a block - like every form/kata should (it's defensive). And I would add double and triple kick combo's. The form would be about 90 moves long (give or take 10 moves) and take about 3 minutes to preform so it would have some tension movements.

    Grandmaster Andy Ah Po

    He's a great guy! What kind of seminar will you be attending? Qigong, Tang Soo Do, both....? He teaches through action, though he talks - he does not like to. You will sweat a bit, but he will not run you into the ground. But again it matters on the type of seminar you will be attending...

    Whats your favorite BB poomse and why.

    I love all the Songahm forms. I miss them, but life goes on. I think my favorite Songahm form was Songahm #5, it's been changed a few times sense I was with the ATA but it was a great challenge and I'm sure you're up to it.

    ITF / WTF better apart or together?

    I feel they have they're merits being apart, but I would like to see some joint ventures. Like the Olympics or some world championship tourney's - or even an open instructors camp would be great!

    Looking for a good print or poster of the tenets

    I have a professional artist on call (when I need her) but at $200 (and that's a favor for a friend, example my logo) per job I try and avoid anything but original art. I may have her do something, but I'm looking for prints first to save money. I found a poster on Ebay Canada, but the...

    Looking for a good print or poster of the tenets

    Thank you for the edit...I can't type after Friday night sparring class. I did try Google, just have not found much. Though I did find one, I'll attach it. The only problem is very low quality I would need to figure out how to clean it up.

    Looking for a good print or poster of the tenets

    I'm looking for a good poster or print of the Tenets of TKD. It will be going up on one of my walls, so it needs to be professional looking. I've looked around but have not found a copy I like. Any ideas where to look?

    How many uniforms do you wear in a week?

    It clicked in 1986, when I was a red belt. At that point, I didn't know the difference between "traditional and sport" (and I don't think there was then) but it didn't matter. My entire TKD world was in the school with my instructor as my God like person. Things were so simple back then, no...

    Student/Instructor contact

    I am never alown with kids. I did take the Boys Scouts Child Protection certification seminar and they went as far as locking the child in the dojang while I'm outside.....have not had to do that yet. What I'm dealing with now is kids walking up behind me and sneaking in a hug....or just...

    Student/Instructor contact

    So, as some of you know I now own a full time commercial school. And I am finding that a good chunk of my new students are females between the age of 7 and 12, and they love taking classed from us. But what I'm finding is that they love physical contact while being instructed. Now, I'm fine with...

    red belt problem

    *don't wash your belt* I know it's not a popular opinion here, only a little tradition. If any of my students (and I know you are reading this thread) wash their will earn another. And that's totally based on the traditions my instructors passed down to me. Why we...

    water filled punching bags?

    I have had this problem, and it won't stop the freezing but you can fill it with water but not all the way only 2/3 full, gives it room to expand when it does freeze and the bladder won't burst.

    Kukkiwon 10th Dans...who are they?

    I don't know if it was through the KKW, but ATA founder Eternal Grandmaster H.U. Lee was awarded his 10th Dan after his death.
