    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mma-cagewriter/retirement-may-smart-move-ufc-champ-georges-st-151938004--mma.html After reading this article on Yahoo, it really got me thinking that if the issues he's dealing with are as serious as they're reporting it really might be a good idea for him to hang...

    Retirement

    I made it through my Air Force retirement ceremony without becoming a total emotional wreck. 21 years was a long time and I can't believe how emotional it was, I honestly didn't think I was going to get choked up about it until I got up there to give my retirement speech and the emotions just...

    Accountability for ones own actions

    Sad that the race card gets thrown again as opposed to looking at one self in the mirror and owning up to your own mistakes. http://www.timesonline.com/news/local_news/inmate-spit-on-paralegal-made-threats/article_f57a6c10-ddf4-5a21-9819-559bec1bc804.html

    Hip rotation problem

    I've been having problems primarily with my right side rotating my hip properly when I attempt to throw a roundhouse kick. I've been working the problem by using a chair for support and throwing slow, control kicks, concentrating on the technique. I'm hoping that by doing this it will improve...

    Children today

    These 2 quotes bring up a particular point that particularly burns my butt, these were from another thread regarding recruits being too fat to serve in the military and I didn't want to get sidetracked on that particular thread. "They feed our kids crap, that's why they're sick and fat!"...

    Just out of curiosity, is anyone out there familiar with Sensei Mike Shaw? I studied Shotokan with him back in the 80's and I'm curious if he's still teaching? His school was in East End, OH if that helps.

    Do Hop Sool

    Has anyone here ever studied Do Hop Sool? I studied briefly while stationed in Korea from 92-93. I've never seen any other mention of schools opening up in the states after I left and it seemed to be pretty popular among the military folks there. The only website I've seen regarding it...

    Is there anyone out in MT that practices at either one of those dojangs? It seems like they're pretty popular here in the Midwest and from what I've seen on their websites I'm a bit skeptical. I've called a couple of thier schools to try and get more information (contracts, dues, etc...) and...
