I've been out of action for about 6 months unable to train or hit the weights, but thought I'd share..
Due to change in my hours and work load from my employer. I'm unable to get to my regular training gym on time (I work 1.5 hours drive from home\dojo).
After a few months going nuts from not...
Curious, I've noticed a lot of BJJ Instructors go by a title of Professor.
In Australia, it has academic rank associations with it and is reserved for certain levels of education.
Is there a difference to what Professor means in Brazil? And how it's used, is it more inline with teacher or sensei?
I went through the introduction of this method and was pretty impressed with what they had to say.
While a lot of it's parenting 101, it had a lot of aspects that can easily get lost in day to day life, and having something like this with your kids helps keep things consistent and has...
Another post which included some talk around footwork has prompted me to comment here.
I boxed when younger and I like to move on my feet. 20 years later and I've started over with Hapkido, when sparring or using the mitts I still constantly moving side to side, and I get criticized by some...
What are you goals for 2015 with your Hapkido?
I have few,
Build my core and be able to plank 5 minutes during warm-ups
Able to speak basic Korean, numbers, greetings etc.
Maintain my attendance regular
Get more involved with the sparring classes
Muscle memory cross hands techniques.
I enjoy tangling with BJJers so I can learn how they move, and try and escape or imitate. I don't often get the upper hand, but when I do, it tends to be if I manage somehow to get a leg lock (I'm talking basic lock here, arm under the calf and pressure to the knee, stuff I did as a kid growing...
I'm very proud of my countryman for bringing out some good in light of a tragic event that happening in Sydney yesterday.

I'm starting to notice how important using your hips are for nearly everything I learn in Hapkido, and I'm guessing it plays a big role in most other martial arts.
Do you have exercises that can help train hip movement to encourage better use?
Where posters handles come from? Some are boring like my own. jezr is letter play on Jezza which is a nickname for Jeremy, my name.
I often look at others names used here and wonder what the story is behind it.
Post your meaning, I think a few of us would find it interesting.

Is it common for Hapkidoist (is that the term used?) to also have yusul as part of their training?
Some of my classes involves yusul, but was wondering if this is very common? Or is it part and parcel?
I was listening to a pod cast on the way to work that was talking about CMA Gongs. They described them as habitual actions used to enhance their techniques, like Iron Fist or conditioning knuckles for punches, I'm guessing similar to the makiwara in Shotokan etc..
Are there "gongs" unique to...
I'm fortunate enough to have my own BOB for home training and for spooking people with it's presence in their peripheral vision.
I dress mine up to protect it from wear and tear a little, plus the kids like to do this as well. So thought would post my current BOB fashion and see if anyone else...

I was shown some techniques the other night with how to make yourself heavy and observed some where pressure applied to say the arm prevented the person from moving or rising.
While I'm very skeptical as to their explanation (or lack there of), there is some body mechanics behind it that I'm...
One of our warm-up activities is footwork where our back foot comes in parallel with our front foot, turn a certain amount of degrees and then back to the same stance. Generally you have a hand behind and one in front moving in a swaying motion.
Is there a name for this? My Korean is very...
It would be nice if there was a icon or written primary martial arts option next to peoples avatar, I know you can go into a profile and find out but would be good if it was easily visible when looking at posts.
While it was not part of my decision to start Hapkido, I've heard it referred to on several occasions as the old mans MA.
My experience so far, while it is still short. Is that this has been the most intensive training I've had, with moving around the last few years I have been training in what...
