I enjoy the traditional way. If you think tradition doesn't work in today's world, people attack now the same way they did 2000 years ago. They have to get to you. Scratch the gun idea. I worked that out in the military, yes we to gun defense in close quarter combat. If they are too far away, call in air support.

As far as the pictures of the military training pictures. It is the 25th SPS in Oasn Air Base South Korea. They are members of the Air Force Emergency Services Team ( EST- Hostage Rescue/Counter terrorism). I was an instructor for them for many of the the 10 years I lived in Korea. I served with the Air Force (Air Intelligence Command) under the tasking of the Special Operations command and worked with units like 2763rd Special Tactics Squadron out of Pope Air Force Base. I was an Intelligence Field Operations Specialist (HUMINT). They used me for information gathering on the enemy from the back and then briefing and/or leading them through the mission. As far as the CIA link, I thought it was pretty cool. Our Last "Commander" retired from the CIA and then became a civilian to run out shop as an advisor. I worked with alot of them in my Career and they are great guys. Even theough they lost their leader recently, he stepped down and took the bullet for the President. Honorable.
The webpage is just that, to attract students. You can't catch a rat with fake cheese. (or can you?) If you think our website is full of crap. Prove it. Others have come and gone, they enjoyed it emensly. We have an open door. Talk is cheap. If someone has this much of a problem with another, buy an airplane ticket and come on down. I have no problem with that. Many have done it. All of them left as a friend and never taked bad about us ever again. Call Grandmaster Chang in Korea and ask him yourself. No he is NOT a loney grocery store owner with a script to read. His number is on the website. I hope you speak Korean. He does speak limited english though from all the years of teaching US Military. Here is the number just for you. 011-82-666-6354. they are 14 hours ahead of NY right now.
I don't know where it says that our classes are $99/class. We charge $150 per month. People pay it with glee. They NEVER complain. We do have MANY people here form other arts. They came to challenge us and became students. McDojo? Me thinks not.
The only time we wear Hakama (skirts) is for pictures, formal events like high rank promotion, and traditional meetings. They tend to get in the way and the students cannot see where they are suppost to move thier feet. Inhibits training. The Korean Government is craking down on marital arts. Like what happend at Kukkiwon with the fake certificates being issued. Certified means we graduated from the University with a degree in Martial arts sciences and passed our 4 Dan test afterwards depending on your GPA. If your GPA was bad, you don't test for your complete certification. It isa Three year program at 6 to 8 hours a day. My instructor has only certified 7 people as instructors. 6 Koreans, one Chinese man, and myself. The only non-asian. In over 50 years of teaching, he has only certified 7 people. Sound like a McDojo?
Sign me up for a throwdown. I will bring the Makolee (unrefined rice wine). Looks kinda like milk, but you can't get it from a cow.

If you actually show up to the throwdown, you will earn some respect right off the bat.

Why do you claim crap on your website? You speak in genral, not specific to claims that have already been mentioned.
And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

Regardless, it's places like this that give Hapkido a bad name. Actually, it's almost all HKD kwoons that give it a bad name.
$99 a class?! Did I read that right?
You read right - 99 buck a class. That's a month of classes for me. Sign me up!

Families that train together, stay together
Families that pray together, stay together sounds catchier to me.
Families that play together, stay together is more like it.
Families that slay together, stay together.....
Families that fade together, stay together.....
Families that laid together, stay together....that's just sick.
Do you get my point?

Sorry but you don't impress me. My opinion from your writing is that you're arrogant and opinionated. You come in here expecting us to welcome you with open arms. Like anything in this world earn our respect. Learn who you are talking to.
Your signature says master. Bullshit. You're a master when you prove to me you're a master. It is a title given to you by your students and your peers not by the piece of cloth around your fucking waste. If you want to believe you're not a Mcdojo prove it.
As far as I'm concerned blow the rest of your pompous position of "come visit us" out your ass. I have a better idea. We have a Vegas throwdown. Show up. Jump in on other conversations, contribute. Defend that which you believe with some wit not with what you believe. Don't be a hypocrite and judge those because you're feeling like you're being judged. You put yourself out there now reap the whirlwind.

From what I got in the website, he's really traditional, which might be a good thing. I'd like to see him post some video of a training session as well as his sparring techniques.
