Kim's Martial Arts in Addison
Hi' i'm a teacher from Kim's Martial Arts - i'm here to tell you about us.
A quick breakdown and elaboration on some of our ratings
Aliveness - Since this is generally a question about sparring, i went with 8. The TKD sparring gear is good at preventing injuries, allowing us to go all out. I could also talk about how it trains to hit vital points around someone's guard, but i'm sure that's allready been talked to death about.
We've got equipment
Blue shields , 2 extra thick red shields
Standing bags (1/2 kids, 1/2 adults)
Weight lifting supplies (1 bench, 1 squat rack,a screw-on barbell, 2 sets of each plate and a old red stretching machine. The good kind)
Hanging bag - Connected to steel support beam (60 lb, we have a heavier one though)
Hitting boards on same support beams.
Size - We have a separate weight lifting, bathroom (Both gender), Mat area, and Waiting room, along with an office and Master's Room)
Atmosphere - We're teach a lot of kids. It's definitely a focus, but the adult class gets treated a bit more harshly. We are not here to mollycoddle you.
Striking instruction - I'd like to say 10 here, but i'm basing this on Me, and i haven't won the games yet. I have traveled to korea for a tournament, and i'm going next year, so there is that, does that count? We win alot of local tournaments, but nothing non local. I'm also going into MMA, so there is that
Grappling instructions- Outside of one steps, we have seminars on grappling, as well as black belt classes where we go over judo and hapkido techniques. So i went with 4, we're not a grappling school, but we do teach some.
Weapons - Yeah, we're a bare hand school. We have weapon seminars, but no sparring.
I should mention we're thinking about holding a Throwdown. - http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...46#post2782846
Ask me anything, i'm open to questions.
