Very nice, Stuart. I like the wide range of sparring and SD stuff you guys do. Hope the guy's foot is OK. I have broken many a bone myself!

I can't say I'm impressed.

I didn't like the "self defense" portion at all. Not just the lack of realism,but the overall cheesy techniques in general.

Was he doing sine wave? Could see alot of room for improvement on the pattern performance as well.

How long has this guy been training?

I'm not flaming, just being honest. I'd give him a "high green".

If you say so.. though which portion are you refering too.. the clip doesnt have portions, as its all mixed in togethor (one step, sparring, SD and all the rest)!!

Not the newer version of the sine wave no. His patterns were performed witha broken bone, so Id say he did pretty well consider, though obviously this would affect them somewhat.

Long enough to warrent going for 2nd dan

LOL.. if you say so. Feel free to show videos of your gradings so we can compare and reflect!

Ok, the self defense 'parts'. Didn't like them and they were awful.

There are more versions? Oh, snap, tkd is on more trouble than I thought.

What did he break? His toe? Big deal. tape it together and move on. What good is an X-ray and all the bills if they are going to just tape it?

That's about as clear as mud. Although I expect it from an art who's main concern is chasing belts and the next rank. He should be ready for 3rd dan next year.

I've never graded mine or my students 'testings'. I don't much believe in testings anyway. It's just a moneymaking scheme. Besides, I wouldn't know which cool song to play.

How much did he pay for his 2nd dan? $100? $200? More?

Each to his own I guess.. although I am wondering just what video your watching as most would agree they are actually pretty decent.. still, I guess you cant please everyone.

Oh what a hero you are! Besides, it was X-rayed the next day, so no-one knew it was broken.. and he did just get on with it.. no tape either! And no bills, it was done on the NHS!

Ah! You have a beef with the art (me too ).. okay, just for you... he traned 6 years to his 1st degree and a further 2 years for his second, though I suppose thats not long enough for you!

Quote:

So nothing to show then.. figures!

Quote:

Heard that before.. theres pro's and con's to that too, just like formal gradings. I take it you judge when your students are ready to move up then.. or dont you believe in having ranks either? How many classes do they have to attend before their next rank then!

Quote:

True for McDojangs.. but not for all dojangs. Others make money by charging high fees, not doing gradings so no one ever fails and thus retain them longer to pay more high fees!

Quote:

Well, we cant all be into cool music.. dont worry, no one would ever hold it against you

Quote:

Enough to cover the hall for a solo grading for 3 hours & travel expenses of the outside examiners. The grading had 5 examiners + 3 others BBs to help test him traveled down. NO ONE made any money that day.. in fact I lost money, as I usually do by hosting small, intensive gradings.
