Hi all of you guys and menina

well i am suda and i started doing tkd about one month ago and have been doing since. unlike what i did earlier i enjoy tkd each day more for many reasons .

but some times i find it soooooo irritating that i can not do kicks and punchs with the quickness along with the power that i imagine they should be.i mean so far i try and practice a lot but it is not coming naturally so far.any way i daydream of the day i would be able to fight with my opponent who are mostly seniors in an aggresive yet more natural manner in which my body can fight throwing kicks and punches naturally without using my brain to think of my next movement.

hey by the way if my english sounds like crap , sorry people i am still improving my english.

hey menina how are u and i read many new things about u , mmmmmm they are interesting and seemz you enjoy being here a lot.... take care

When that happens to me I just stop, take a step back and breath. Like any art it takes time to develop the skills you seek. I found that the best thing to do to increase my development was just to relax and do the movements slowly. I feel the technique this way and learn my body mechanics. Try it and see if it helps.

I believe in practicing slowly too if something isn't getting you where you want to go. I do that a lot.

Hiya!

I'm a bit of a fish out of water here. I'm not currently into marshal arts. Former runner, a bit of aikido and now a bellydancer, tribal fusion style - that means I need a lot of athleticism and flexibility and the hitch is that I'm 56 next month.

I've ordered the DVD and am ever so hopeful as I do need the splits in my school of choice, backbends would also be very nice but not necessary.

So I'm hoping there are other geezers out there who can commiserate.

Hello guys. I'm glad I found this forum, I've been looking for a place where I could find people that like martial arts and could give me some tips.

I just started Tang soo do 6 months ago after a 10 year absence but I'm back for good. I stopped when I was 17 at my orange belt and now I'm up to 6th dan.

I hope to meet great people and like-minded friends.

Eregos: you came back an orange belt and after 6 months you're a 6th DAN? Wow, were they glad to have YOU back!

Hi all,
Just returning to the martial arts after 15 year hiatus. It sure is nice to see some older people here too, some of the dojos I visited seemed to be youth cults! At the tender age of 47 I was at least 25 years older than the sensei
This time around I am looking for the transformative and spiritual side of the arts as well as the fitness/self-defense aspect as I have been pracicing meditation daily now for the last ten years.

Lol, sorry about that. I did not mean 6 dan, it's all the posts I've been reading, I had a brain melt down. I meant 6th gup.
