Thank you for the frank comments. I believe that it may sound a bit like a walking board for the art of CKD but it is rather intended as a eye opener for all other SSD students that didn't realize that they were really studying CKD all along and were decieved.
Let the truth be known.....after all, isn't that what this site is for?
Also check out my comments on the Choi vs Shim discussion.
Sorry if it sounded like promotion. I'm trying to warn people about Shim Shin-Do....especially some of my fellow former students. Lots of good people being really used for Mr B's selfish desires.
Put him on the McDojo link
How do I put Shim Shin-Do on the link? I will do it in a heartbeat. I really want people to avoid losing all their $$ and wasting time.
Can you help me. It is www.shimshindo.com
hi ppl... i'm from Argentina... i practised SSD for 2 years... i 'am brown belt... and i must admit i liked the Art but i really don't know if the art itself has technique stolen from other arts... i'm very interested of knowing more bout it and why do everyone hates it lol...
I stoped practising cause Mr. B as u call him had some problems with who actually is my Tae kwon-do instructor (who told me Mr. B is a vey sellfish person as u say here). After this problem SSD Argentinian Federation was closed...
So... finally I ask u again to tell me what u think bout SSD and why hate it that much...
Thx 4 the space and time to post... c ya...
(I'm sorry 4 my englush... i'm spanish speaker) =P
I left after learning some things about his personal life that I wasn't comfortable with. I don't really want to post them here. I went to the Palm Harbor school many years ago, and the people I trained with were wonderful. I miss them a good deal, but I didn't want to give him my money anymore.
I don't remember anyone ever failing a belt test. I think you could go in there and just stand there and drool and pass. It was a money maker for him once a month.
Well stated Exshimshindoer!! You hit the nail on the head. This "Grand Master" is nothing of the sort. You are COMPLETELY correct...This is a BIG scam! I know first hand. Warning to ALL! Stay a way from this guy. All he wants is your money and gives nothing of himself in return.
Thanks for the tip...and saving me time and a lot of money...i was wondering myself about this. It seems to be very true. That doesn't mean you can't learn anything, just walk away when the time comes when they want the big commitment and then study something else you like.
Why do people keep coming up with these fucking names?
Shim-shiminee, shim-shiminee, shim-shimmm-shereeeee...
