Now most folks get a little peeved when you say things about things they care for. I see this is the same for you as well. We all also seem to be wired with a desire for fair play and justice.I see this is the same for you.


Hapkido is not Tae Kwon Do, it is not a sport and it is effective in live combat, no flying kicks. After ten years of hapkido it upsets me when people say it is like TKD!!! I hope razor foot shuts you down!!

*storms off angrily*

You admit to being angered by a persons comments about Hapkido. You also hope that I would take action against that person. Why for being young and confused? I should take action againt him for for asking his teacher what art he studies? Fortunately I do not take peoples recommendations on who I disipline or ban. If that were the case you would have been gone a long time ago. Many people have contacted my regarding your posts.

My question is what is the difference between you and the young man you would have me take action against?

You seem to feel free to define for the practioners of an art, just what that art is. Now you could molify your arguement by saying "in my experience" but you are still defining what the art is or has in it's syllabus. What is called TKD is i very broad collection of differing approaches. It is not monolithic.

As for the efficacy of TKD for self defence I can only speak from my experience and that of my students. I have used what I have learned on multiple occaision. I have survived attacks from individuals. I have fought multiple opponats on 4 seperate occaisions.I have been attacked with both a golf club and a young man with a knife. I the event with the knife, I disarmed the assailant breaking his wrist.

Four of my students have been assaulted. Each one !))% of them Survived. Some would say "won" or "KickedA$$". One Child One man, and two women. Each one out matched by size or in number. Each end their encounter descisvily in less than a minute. One woman even pinned her male attacker on the pavement in a walmart parking lot till police came.They have used strikes, kicks, Knees, joint locks,and pins on the ground. None of them was ranked higher than a green belt.

So I would say that all of us have been more than patient with the presentation of your opinion. You imply a little bit about what your experience with forums has been. Yes thing can get heated. Part of my job here is to see that cooler heads prevail. You have PMed me and plead your case when you have been offended. As you know I have taken action in the situations you have brought up. What would you have me do now?

Perhaps you could contact the Amin privately.

Oh,yes.... That would be me.
