I posted the videos on martial arts planet and someone said that I look like i bought some equipment off ebay, watcheds some kung fu movies and then tried to copy it, he said he's seen people at his dojang with 2 months of training who are much better.




And how many videos has that dude put up of himself?

That guy is an ass. It's very easy to mouth off on the internet. I give you much respect for having the guts to put your videos up and take criticism. I bet that jackass has never put any of his stuff up for anyone to see.

Don't worry about internet mouth-boxers like that. Keep doing your thing and learning.

he did come off a bit strong...but in the beginning of the thread you didn't mention it was you and your bro...so the guy didn't know he was going to offend you. you only asked opinion of the video and didn't present it the same way you presented it here. just trying to be fair.

I figured if I didn't say it was me, they would be even more critical and honest, oh well I guess I got what I wanted. Oh well, now I just need to train twice as hard!

Oh yea, MA Planet. I was a member there for about a month before I gave up. Just not the same quality as here IMO.

Having read that MAplanet thread, I agree with Kin that the guy probably would not have been that harsh had he known he was addressing Eric.

His comments were pretty harsh, though. To say that there appeared to be no "traditional arts" on display was overdoing it a bit. I have seen other 4 year students with less skill.

Although, Eric - next time, own up from the beginning.

I know, I just figured if someone didn't know it was me, they would be more harsh, I guess I got what I wanted, I just didn't expect it to be that....harsh lol. This has all been good though. Martial arts are about improving your mind, body, and spirit. Posting these videos are helping me do so. These criticisms, and being able to hear what people outside my small dojang think, have really opened my eyes, and helped me to want to train 10 times as hard to be improve myself and reach a higher level. Lately I've been reading alot more, studying the mental parts of martial arts, and the philosophy behind it, trying my best to understand and take in as much as I can. I've also started going to class 4 times a week, and working out twice as much and twice as hard as home. Hopefully one day, I can reach the spiritual and physical level that I strive for, and eventually pass on all that I've learned to my own students. It's going to be a long road, and now I know that I'm even farther from where I thought I was, however everyones comments have helped me to walk a little faster I think.
Thank you all.

last bit of advice...don't burn yourself out of MA. force yourself to do unrelated stuff...read a book on a completely different subject. spend time with people you care about and don't be thinking of a technique you are working on...live in the moment and enjoy.

corney stuff. but true.

That's one thing that I really need to work on myself. Stepping in on the attack, deflecting, and countering. It's kinda tricky I think, takes lots of practice. I mainly have a problem with plain confidence in doing it. That's a bubble I need to break free from.

If your teacher doesn't explain stuff or isn't real technical, than ask. If he can't give a solid answer oh well.




I must admit I find that hard as well... the natural reaction when someone is going to strike you is to move back, not forward.

1stly... well done on the videos, and you have given me the idea to film some of my training too, cause as you said, you can see things yourself that you didn't know you do.

2ndly... I'm not sure whether it is a TKD thing or not, but I would be going for a lot more low kicks. Although your brother leaves his hands down and leaves you a meal ticket by not protecting his head, also watch for a wide stance. If you go for his front inner thigh with an oucho-momo (Havent a clue how you spell it) then he won't beable to retalliate very well.

once again.... love the videos
