May I ask what led you to take up Kyukido? Were you originally from Utah then moved to Florida?

Thanks for the welcome here guys.
My name is Eric Conley. I started taking classes from Wayne Hull under Royal West in SLC UT, mainly for the Hapkido. Thats what kept me going to that school to adventually get my black belt and open my own school here in Florida when left Utah and I moved here toPensacola in 2000.

I now have 3 Black Belts under me and 2 more within about 10 months from now. I got my 1st Dan in Kyukido in May of 99, Hapkido 1st Dan in Apr of 04 ( I think) and 2nd Dan Kyukido in April of 06.

Im pretty good friends with Ken of AKF Athens, I try to work out with him once or twice a year.

I miss being around all the other Kyukido schools and instructors, but they do show so much support to keep me going, expecially Grand Master OkYoung Kim and Wayne Hull. Its a great group of Martial Artists and I am honered to be part of the American Kyukido Federation.

Of course,,, I do have MySpace. Look for me and say Hi, www.MySpace.com/Kyukido and my regular Website is www.kkdma.com

Ill try to keep checking this quite often to keep in touch, you can never know to many other Martial Artists.

Thnaks and have a great day.
Eric Conley

Welcome to MT, Red Dragon!

I'm originally from Elgin, IL & I've trained with a lot of folks from the "home office" for a number of years.

I look forward to your contributions here.

I just wanted to say Hi, Its been a while since I loggen on last.

In April, I my Dojang will be holding the next big test for 2 students advancing to Red Belt in Kyukido and 1 student in Hapkido. Then they will be testing to Black Belt in Novenber 2007.

In Nov. I will have a total of 4 students who have become Black Belts in Kyukido and 2 in Hapkido.

This is exciting to me to see students grow from White Belt to Black Belt. I learn alot from everyone in my Dojang and I appreciate all the students I have had.

Greetings to all. Just found your site. A few wandering thoughts as an intro. Have been doing Kyuki-do for about 3.5 years and finally earned my First Dan Black Belt a few weeks ago. It was a long haul even though that time frame doesn't seem long to many of you. There was a little interruption in 2020 called "open heart surgery." But, with in-nae (perseverance) it all worked out. Forgot to mention I'm 67 years old. Perseverance is my favorite of the Kyuki-do tenets. I know if I quit, there goes my health. So, I plan to "keep on truckin" and aim for the next level. I learned under the supervision and teaching of Grand Master Yun Kim, the brother of the founder of Kyuki-do. He is in his 70's and calls me "Young Man." As a means of encouraging the younger set, I had some poker chips made professionally with a reminder about perseverance. I'm attaching a foto of them. I hand them out to young students generally around their Green Belt test. For some reason, green belts are getting kinda tired of the same stuff and can't see that the fun stuff is just about to start, so they lose interest. I give them this "challenge coin" to encourage them to keep going. Their promise to me is that they'll keep on striving, no matter what life throws at them and they'll get that black belt. But, they have to give it back to me when they give up. I've only handed out 4 or 5 of them, and I give it to students that look like they need a boost. Anyway, that's enough ramblings for now.

Say, I'm an old guy (hence my avatar name). How do I edit my profile to change it from white belt to black?

You don't. That banner has nothing to do with your rank. It only indicates how active you are on the forums.

True. The main reason I signed up is to offer my own insights into the process of going thru the belt levels as a senior citizen and living with the Black Belt Mentality. Just recently (Tuesday night) lost one of my toenails learning Muay Thai as a part of our Black Belt Class. Normally, I am irritated by the fact that I have a bit of neuropathy in my feet, which makes it hard to balance and do some of the stances. But, it was actually a blessing this time around as there was absolutely no pain!
