    what's up

    Lets get this over with. I wrestled from junior high through colledge, and no I wasn't anywhere near olympic material. But that wrestling saved my ass in the street many times through the years. Started TKD a year ago to just learn something fresh. I took the time to find a real school that works with the now in mind instead of the yesteryears. We work a lot of joint locks take downs and modern selfdefence with all the cool ass kicks. And before anyone talks **** about tkd and mcdojo, the average time for a blackbelt at my school is 7 years. Look forward to talking **** with you guys.

    We, do light contact bare knuckle, and wear full pads for the rough stuff. There are a lot of people from other styles so we do limit sparring at times. For instance, myself coming from a wrestling background and being a heavyweight, I would be limited to counters with my feet only and no throws or grabs. We try to get everyones weakest link to be an strong point.

    Do you mean you use Joint locks in order to take someone down?

    We do a lot of joint manipulation. There is a lot of hapkido techniques wrapped up in our system. We definitly do not practice for sport. Joints are a great way to take someone down. They follow the pain, or they end up broken.

    The school was an WTF school, but started moving away from them 7 or 8 years ago when they started adding hapkido into the system. We are now with the AIKIA. Our Master was a 6th dgree in Chang Moo Kwan, and a 4th degree in Sim Moo Hapkido. What we do now we call Muldo for water art, or simply mma.

    I wrestled in school. I have a fair amount of experience with standing joint locks and I can tell you, they are very difficult to pull off against an opponent who is both fully resisting and has a modicum of grappling skill.

    They are quite a few counters to standing joint locks as well.

    I'm telling you this because I know many people overestimate the efficacy of standing joint locks. They require a high degree of precision to pull off against a skilled opponent in a non-cooperative environment.
    Shut the hell up and train.
