Sorry, couldn't resist the name of the thread One of my students had been studying TKD before he started dating my sister. At the time I was only teaching private lessons at my house. She brought him over to meet "Big Brother" and he and I got to talking. We hit it off and he started telling me about his training, Tess kept checking on me because of the choking noises I was making. That night I introduced him to Kenpo. By the time I opened my dojo, six months later, he was a brown belt in TKD. He also joined my dojo. He asked me if he should quit TKD, and I told him, at that point in time, it was a silly thing to do. So he has kept up with it. Of course, the time they told him he needed to defend against two punches and he unleased Circling Fans on them, they were dumb founded:rockets: Well, later today, he tests for his TKD BB. Last week when he went to get signed up for the test. They told him he had to have a white GI, he has worn black the entire time he has been training with them. (Thus Cross Dressing) He asked Tess and I to come to his testing. How could I say no? So later today, after I get off work at 8am, I get to go home, clean up and go with my student to PA to watch his TKD test. I must admit, as a TKD convert myself, it will be interesting to go watch. It will also be akward, as an instructor of another style. If I didn't think someone would take offense, I would wear all my Kenpo regalia.
