    A little tired

    Manny, I never liked the sport side of tkd. As a guy in his 40s, spinning and jumping poses a risk of injury. I prefer good traditional training, mixing a variety of low to high kicks but also solid punches, blocks and good footwork. Plus, no offense to anyone, but I am tired of all the kiddies.

    Big gray clouds over me

    Good luck in your journey. I was happy to study martial arts outside tkd. I am happier training on my own, using all that I learned from various martial arts. Your future is wide open.

    Nia Sanchez and her rape comment. people freaks out.

    Great points. Also to add conversations about alcohol and trusting people too much. If we are talking about rapes on campus, I bet my last dollar that most are connected to drinking rather than a random assault.

    Are the liberal elites muzzling dissent?

    I am intolerant of things, but I exercise that in a measured way. Since we are talking about this topic, i recall a sad series of events where birthers attempted to shout down Obama.

    Are the liberal elites muzzling dissent?

    Tolerance for differing points of view is strained; and frankly, it always has been. I think college is the best time to listen to alternate views. While some high profile cases of overly sensitive liberal agendas in this matter have made it to the press, the problem is all over. I am confident...

    Martial Arts Expert Killed in Durban, South Africa.....

    What really needs to be said about self defense, when things are reduced to actual violence, is that in the course of such action one faces a high likelihood of injury or possibly death. A lucky slash of the knife can bring even the most capable martial artist to his or her demise.

    Memorial Day Thoughts

    I understand your point. People can have trouble dealing with nuances and contradictions, which is really what life is about, and default to black and white views that simplify reality. Yet that latter approach is really a distortion.

    People join the military for a variety of reasons. Some are looking for war, just like some cops are into dangerous assignments.

    True story...or myth...a gun story told over 20 years...

    Yes, we in MD have brass in pocket. Whereas, Va cops had a habit of putting strippers phone number in their pockets and not remember putting them there. Lonely dudes on the range.

    Why is WTF/KKW TKD More Expensive Than Other Arts?

    I work on the basics all the time. I have left all the spinning and most jump kicks behind. I stay very flexible and strong. I can kick at head level easily. I spend time looking at my footwork, learning to move the least amount possible while avoiding a threat. Thereby, keeping myself in range...

    Why is WTF/KKW TKD More Expensive Than Other Arts?

    I no longer go to a dojang. Price gouging in my area was the main reason. When I did, I actively sparred and practiced forms. However, I increasingly became selective about who I would spar with. If someone was an unknown quantity, I would politely pass. The reason being, I had enough...
