    Jitae Tae Kwondo Academy

    Okay, just got an email from my sister her it is...


    "Hey Nick,
    Just got off the phone with (I'll replace the name with "My friend") who's child was enrolled at Jitae Tae Kwondo Academy in Lalor. (that's Melbourne).

    I found out yesterday that during the lesson her son (he is a red belt now & trains with the black belts) and the other children were asked who watches TV. The red belts (obviously unaware) put up their hands. They were lined up & told to put out their hands. The Owner (a man named Costa) then proceeded to hit each one of the children with a cane!!

    Amazingly enough many of the parents were watching and said nothing. My friend is a very timid person & was shocked. She pulled him out & taken him to another school, but I was amazed that she let it go without pressing charges or at least letting people know about this sadistical bastard. My friends son is only about 8 years old! I doubt she would want publicity, but I thought you might find some other parents that would or post it on that site you mentioned."


    Now WTF?
    Is this normal practice? Caning 8-year-old kids because they watch TV? What the **** has that got to do with fighting?

    Is this an over-reaction? Am I wrong or is this pure bullshido?

    If anyone from that school is a member of this forum I'd love to hear their side of it.

    I don't know if it's bullshido, but it's certainly bullshit if it's true.

    Well, as much as part of me would wish it wasn't, this person is my sisters matron of honour, and have grown up together so I can't see why she'd lie. BUT I would like to know if it was as brutal as it kind of sounds...

    then again, a whack with a cane is a whack with a cane, and I don't see the "learning value" of that to an 8 year old kid. Apart from "if you do something I don't agree with - thin its okay to hurt you"

    Child abuse plain and simple.
    Even if she dosen't want take it further her self she sould report it to the police/social services. It may just be that but if that's the attitude more & worse might be going on.

    TV may be the devil... but hitting children is wrong too.

    If this is true it should be reported to authorities. I'm hoping this information is accurate and not just a case of parents overreacting. I say this because I've seen one too many cases of parents overreacting when it comes to martial arts.

    Good points...
    I'll pass that on and get my sister to mention contacting a government body. If its true there should be no dram...but if there is hesitation then you know its fishy.

    But I can't see how having your hands whacked with a cane is an over reaction. Either you hit it, or you don't right?

    EDIT: Okay just spoke with my Sis...aparently, one of the parents said "hey why did you hit my kid?" and this guy's answer was "there's a ballet school down the road. If you don't like it, take him there..."

    That's a great attitude.
    Well they have sent a letter to "Today/Tonight" which is a local current affairs program here on TV. Let's see what comes of it.

    Yeah, for sure. If it gets on the show. They have a website so I could even post a link.

    It bothers me because I have two boys of my own - a 4 year old and a 7 year old. I wouldn't like anyone smacking my kid in an MA class just because he watches TV. When I started MA I was 9, and for the decade or so I was in karate I never remember an instrucror doing that to a kid. Punishments were pushups, sit ups and running around the hall. Kids that wouldn't listen were denied participation in the "fun" activities such as poison ball and push/pull (were you tie a belt between the two and see who can pull the other off balance).

    As I said before, it teaches nothing.

    I'll keep you all posted.

    If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say it's a wannabe old school Korean instructor on a power trip. Seen it before.
