    I am learning Taekwondo so that I don't have to fight but learn the skills that will help me defend myself should the need arise so I think the patterns that we learn would help in a real situation

    If you don't believe that, that is your opinion everybody is entitled to their own opinion but not everyone is going to agree with you or with me.

    Actually you need to know your relevant pattern for your grading if you didn't know it you wouldn't pass the grading so in my opinion passing your grading means that you have earned the rank, if it didn't count then why have grading tests in the first place if as you say they are not important.

    so in your mind:

    fighting=/= defending yourself.

    Right. No one has disagreed with this point.

    He is responding to the comment:
    the patterns we learn are very important because they would help you in a real life situation.
    Now, that comment is completely different from:

    if it didn't count then why have grading tests in the first place if as you say they are not important.
    No one has said they aren't important to your grading. Grading is done differently from art to art and school to school. What your organization deems necessary for progressions is important. No one can argue that because it is a requirement regardless of whether we like it or not..

    Hey, just curious, but what association are your gradings being recognized by? WTF, ITF, ATA or which one?

    I'm just a lowly green belt in ITF TKD but I have never heard of a form called Jung Shin. Is it a form just your school has?

    Hi

    The patterns we do at our club are Pal Jung Do Patterns and we have 8 differents patterns to learn from white belt to Black Tag. The new pattern I have to learn is called Jung Shin (Pattern 3) and aparentley our club is not doing another grading now until December which is probably when I will be going for my Green Belt.

    I would suggest you finding another school. One that will actually teach you, rather than baby sit you. I studied Tae Kwon Do in an AKA school, and it took years to get a black belt. We also studied pressure point, weapon defense. Not weapons, but removal of guns and knifes from an attacker. Breaking boards, and the other stuff these new schools focus on is just the fun part. We worked out for at least 1 solid hour, before doing anything else. Find a new school/ and or style. Something that will benefit you.

    Just to be clear this doesn't necessarily denote a better school. I trained at a Mcdojo and I was under the erroneous belief that a long workout made my MARTIAL ARTS school better.

    How long were your classes?
