I've been intrestest in TKD my whole life. Ever since i was a kid i would mimic everything i've seen on tv. But 4 months ago I thought "now let learn how to do this stuff right". With my earlyer experance I was a very advanced newcomer, in no time I doubled promoted to and orange belt, but my master always places me againt black belts. Not only black belts but bigger black belts. I'm 5'7 115 pounds(yes i'm that small) but i usually spare against a guy whos about 6'6 and just over 200 pounds. Sometimes i win some times i loose. I just wanted to know was this a good idea. And does anyone else have any odd match ups like this?

Wow, you seem to have achieved a lot in only four months. If I was your teacher I would also partner you with the black belts. I wish all my new students watched loads of TV to gain earlyer experience.

hi orayin, it is awesome that you chose to learn the martial art of tae kwon do.. ever since i started training tkd at age of 8, i have never stopped loving it for many valuable lessons it has taught me over the years..

5'7" 115 pounds orange belt vs. 6'6" 200+ pounds black belt is no joke.. to be honest, in both strength and tkd experience, it is assumed that the black belt has good advantage over you.. however, with your earlier trainings, in many ways, you can even out those advantages.. for instance, generally speaking of course, a person with smaller stature and weight has advantage over speed.. you would most likely be a lot more mobile and agile compared to your opponent.. second, you have earlier training in different martial art i assume.. unless it is 100% illegal in tkd, i assume in ways you can surprise your opponents.. by the way, which martial arts did you practice prior to learning tae kwon do? i would love to hear about it..

i too, have sparred many opponents who were bigger and stronger than i am.. depending on the opponent, i would use different strategies in overcoming my obstacles.. if a person is stronger than i am, perhaps i will even that out with my technical skills.. if he has just gotten his blackbelt, i may win using my past experiences.. or if the opponent is faster, i would wait to see a chance and when i do, i would use my speed to knock him out..

as you are well aware of it.. there are various tactics one may choose in sparring another opponent.. and i believe 9 out of 10 ten times, it comes from experience.. whoever spars and fights more has great advantage over his or her opponent..

continue training hard and best wishes to you..

The only prior training i have had with an actuall teacher is a year of Boxing. I don't know if it considered a martial art yet.
Other then that i've just been on my own expermenting and such. A little vale tudo, shotokan, and recently I've been expermenting with Muay thai.

But yes I pride myself on my agility, speed and balance, so I do try to exploit them when ever i can.

I do enjoy TKD a lot, and everyone thinks I'm a natural, so I plan on seeing how far it will take me.

But lately i've been running into another problem.

My master has great expectations for me have a career in TKD, he's already talking about National Teams. I don't know if i'm really that good or if he's selling me a dream. Its a lot of presure. But whenever I try to talk to him about other martial arts, he quickly refers back to TKD. Like when I asked him about Muay Thai he replied "there are a lot of knees and elbows in TKD to" and kind of brushed off my question. I don't know if its just a bad habit or he's desperatly trying to keep me intrested in TKD.

If you are in tkd then you're not that good. Go back to watching tv or taking gymkata [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG] As for the 6'6" 200 guy,is he a retard? All he has to do is lay on you! If I fought you I'd just pick you up and throw your skinny little butt across the room.
Yeah..Go national,win all your little trophies.I hope you don't ever have to use your false self confidence in a life or death situation.
Quit and go do MMA!! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/tongue.gif[/IMG]

Whats with the additude, i will go to nationals and win my trophies. I'll be making more use of my skills then you. I respect the martial art and the sport. And how do you know how good i am, for all you know i could be the next Bruce Lee(just an example i don't think i'm that good, but i plan on it).

Why is the sport of TKD so looked down upon anyhow, why can't you respect it for what it is a sport, like boxing it has it rules. The rules are in place to make it more tradisonal, since TKD is a kicking art and all.

I know what works and what doesen't in a real situatuion, hell any one with common sence should

Fine, win your trophies and carry them around to use incase of random violence.

IT IS???

Simple, Because it has ruined american martial arts with all this sport crap!!
Rules are for panzies!! TKD instructors are responsible for more little kids getting beat up than any other sport!! Look how many tkd blackbelts there are!! Too many that don't know crap!!Tkd is just who can do the fanciest kicks,spinning around like balerinas and who can have the most patches with the prettiest uniform!!

that what you think of the youth, how old are you? I can do some pretty looking stuff, but it's just for demos, and 9 times out of 10 when you see an elaberate kick thats just what it is a demo.

You say rules make TKD a bad sport, what sport doesn't have them.

Yeah i have to say they do try and commercialize TKD a little too much but what martial art doesent? Every martial artist want there style to be known, used, and adored by the masses. Thats seems to be the main reason your on this forum. I think your just made because TKD is doing it well.

and do you know of any kid getting beat up because of TKD or are you just assuming this, cause i don't know any.

As for real fights i stick with the punches back fists,knees,elbows,low side kicks and roundhouse.

Don't get caught up in his rediculous remarks, orayin. Just ignore him. With any luck, the little troll will crawl back in his cave in no time. Enjoy your TKD!
