    midnight_sun, is this representative of the type of sparring you do?



    This appears to be a different rule set, without the constant breaks in action

    It seems they use two rulesets. The first clip resembles International Taekwondo Federation (ITF) rules and the second seems to follow World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) rules.

    ITF:


    WTF (Olympic):

    How do they compare to your typical TDK place?

    I beg your pardon, but isn't it called Yudo in Korea?

    Do you happen to have any videos of legit Muto-dori/Muto no jutsu? I'd like to see what it looks like in comparison to the **** we usually see.

    Did you really type this? Traditional Judo? See, you are now creeping your school into bullshido. It is perfectly fine to create a new art based on your past experiences. It's even fine to push self defense even if it is compliant. When you start passing BS off to your students and creating false history, then you are pushing towards Bullshido.

    Its great to know BJJ and is a reason we all train in it but its missing old Martial aspects.
    List the missing Martial Aspects.

    I used his results as an example of a Kyuki-do practitioner. Kyuki-do is a blend of alot of different teachings. Jeff Curran comes and hosts seminars at Kyuki-do schools. He even has taken some of it and uses it in his school. So telling me Kyuki-do has crap martial artists isn't going to fly with me. I will defend it. I have 20 years in other martial arts and gladly train in Kyuki-do as it fills holes in my knowledge.
    Weak appeal to authority. 20 years of MA experience only applies when you tell us what it is otherwise, it is an untrustworthy anecdote.

    This is my last post as its apparent this board it around to dis others schools so you can feel better about your own. (Insert middle finger here)
    Oh and it is "diss." Don't screw up spelling my people's slang.

    Wow, the first time I look at bullshido in a year, and something pops up that I can actually comment on!

    I started MA training at a kyukido school around 2002, I believe, and stuck with it for about 4 1/2 years before finally getting fed up with the AKF.

    Unfortunately, I think I started right at the beginning of a trend toward full-on mcdojo-ness. During my time, the powers that be added a new belt rank (to get more $ from tests, one would think), put out an official text-book thingy that you were heavily encouraged to buy for around $50, if I recall correctly, and started pushing people through the belt ranks a lot quicker, with the result being that you all of a sudden started to see a bunch of chubby 12-14 year old black belts running around. It was like I could see the quality of martial artist produced decrease before my eyes.

    The other thing the AKF does that I find sort of upsetting is to give ranks in arts other than kyukido. For example, I have a black belt in judo from them that I would put at maybe 1/4 the value of the same rank from the usja--gauged by the ass-whooping I took when I competed in a real usja tourney. I think they've also recently started giving out ranks in hapkido and jiu-jitsu. At the risk of sounding cynical, I think the logic at the top is: more arts--> more belt ranks--> more tests--> more $

    This claim may merit further investigation. Is your Judo rank registered with anyone else?
