    Big schools, small standards

    I feel that, for a school to grow large, and still maintain a high quality, they would have to start small, and cultivate good, skilled instructors and/or assistant instructors, and gradually grow. Just my thoughts

    Who gets to change a kata or technique

    It looks to me like a deflection setting up a joint lock. I think it may depend on the following movements, or maybe the preceding ones.

    Man vs. Beast III

    This was before that, I think. I may have gotten confused, which I do from time to time. My ride was much slower and cheaper. A 63 Austin Healey Sprite! I loved that car and it did well in my class.

    Man vs. Beast III

    It actually did handle very well, the owner did some SCCA autocross events in it and won his class more than once. I might be wrong about the cylinder configuration, as I helped him tune it a few times, and drove it sporadically. The carbs would dtay tuned for more than two rounds, and it took...

    Man vs. Beast III

    The only Jaguar I was ever around was a 1966 XK-E, with a 12 cylinder engine and three carbs! It was hard to tune, but ran and handled extremely well. But, it could kill you every bit as fast as the furry kind.

    Who gets to change a kata or technique

    If the basics of the system are followed, and, more importantly understood, other than the common changes, the kata/hyung/form should stay faithful to its' core concept. Physical changes will happen for many reasons, such as body type, and even where you train. If the core concepts remain then I...

    Your most memorable rank test

    I'm in Memphis. I'm not sure where this gentleman has his dojang. I have talked to a couple of our long time practitioners and they don't remember him.I think that he may have trained occasionally with Master Rhee. I'm going to look a little deeper.

    Your most memorable rank test

    This question is sort of rank test related. To day, I ran in to a person on line that claimed to have trained with my instructor, but now has his own style and has given himself the rank if 10th dan. He says he trained with him for thirty years, but when I asked about which location he attended...

    A good technique for just such a scenario is told hold up the latest I-phone! When they start hyperventilating, knock the crap out of them!

    What will the Martial Arts be 50 years from now?

    I have to humbly disagree, but understand your point. I feel like there will be people around who more than "Wham Bam Thank you ma'am when seeking training, no matter what the style. There will always be students who want to go a bit deeper in to the essence of the system. As it has been in the...

    How did we get so old???

    Bill, I understand. I also have afib, but is under control with meds, and the rest of my 72 year old body creaks and moans as well. You might want to consider finding a Tai Chi class, and doing a bit of cross training. It always helped me, and let me keep training in my KDK system well past my...

    How did we get so old???

    There is a wonderful technique for this! Look over to your opponents corner, bug your eyes out in wonder and say,"Look! it's Lady GaGa!!", or, you can just run! RUN AWAY!!, ala Monty Python.

    What will the Martial Arts be 50 years from now?

    I feel that all martial arts, even the traditional systems, will still be around in 50 years, but possibly more geared toward the needs of the future generations of students. I believe that what we practice is called martial "arts" for a reason, otherwise, it might be known as martial copying...

    Well, sometimes I wear my underwear on the outside of my pants, and put my shirt on backwards, but this hasn't happened since I stopped drinking!

    Calling Somebody's Dojo A McDojo Is Offensive

    Sure. I was down in the wolf river bottoms doing some plinking when we came across what I thought was a dead bobcat. As my .22 was empty, I poke critter with the muzzle and it sprung straight up and let out a yell. I fell over backwards in to what turned out to be poison ivy, the cat posture...
