    Well, the best part about being a black belt at age five is that now you can multi-class and be a 20/20th level Black Belt/Magic User by the time you're 18. Sweet.

    Have you seen their black belt test?

    Quote Originally Posted by Koo Self Defense
    Master Koo has developed a unique objective test system that requires a strict set of criteria in order for the student to achieve the rank of Black Belt. There are three parts to the test.

    1. Endurance/Stamina mobility drills performed on focus mitts and shields with maximum power for about 30 minutes non stops.

    2. Breaking Techniques: a) 52 Separate Breaking techniques b) Awesome Power Breaking techniques.

    a) The 52 separate breaking requirements utilize both hands and feet (leading and rear leg required). The number of boards for each break varies according to whether the candidate is a child (calibrated according to their age), adult male or female up to a maximum of 3 boards per break.

    b) For the awesome power break, Children as young as 5 years of age have to perform a full board. Adult female, a minimum of 2.5 to 3 full boards and adult male - 4 boards.

    The boards used for the test are brand new re-breakable plastic to maintain consistency for each test. Each full board takes about 70 lbs. of pressure to break. These boards are harder to break than wood!

    In order for any candidate to pass our Black Belt test, a minimum percentage must be achieved with no exceptions.

    For Children: a) 70% of the 52 separate breaks must be on first attempts, with no misses scoring 100% and b) for the 'awesome power' breaks 1 full board for age 5, increasing with age and size, for their best hand or foot scoring 5% and if they perform with their weaker hand or foot will score 10%, totaling a maximum of 115%.

    For Adults: Male and Female a) 80% of the separate breaking must be on first attempts with no misses scoring 100% and b) for the awesome power break, a compulsory best hand or foot scoring 5%; Women's minimum 2.5 boards to 3 boards and Men - 4 boards and if they perform with their weaker hand or foot, they will sore 10%, totaling a maximum of 115%. The maximum number of boards to be broken by an adult male will be 86.

    KSD's black belt test is the hardest and toughest test in the world! Just imagine going on a shooting range and have to shoot 52 separate targets. A shooting target is made up of different circles narrowing to the 'bull's eye'. It's simple enough just to hit the target but can you hit the 'bull's eye' with at least 42 'bull's eye' out of 52, after you have been physically worn down by some of the harshest KSD drills. The 4 boards 'awesome power' test is the toughest of them all!
    (emphasis mine)

    source: http://ksdi.net/bbtest.htm

    In case you don't want to read that whole thing: all they do is 30 min of focus mitt drills and a whole bunch of breaking. Now I think breaking is worthwhile as a means to an end, but it is DEFINITELY NOT what getting your black belt is all about.

    Wow, so I can actually walk in there and get a blackbelt on the first day fi that's their requirment. Iwonder if that'll be a new record (until Gumby's kid is born, at least).

    Nah, it might take a day to learn their focus mitt drills. So shoot for Day Two. :lol:

    I remember I read an article about this style about ten years ago in some magazine. The article was really just an ad, with the main point, "Our students can break multiple boards from Day 1." There was a man demonstrating a focus pad routine consisting of:

    right front kick - left front kick - right front kick - jab - cross - upward elbow - forward head butt - sideways head butt - cross elbow

    I sat there thinking, "If you're marketing your martial art for self defense, why would your main point be about board breaking?"

    oh boy!

    Hi, I happen to live in the same town as this idiot. "Master" Koo is a korean who was linked up with the local TKD foolishness called Choi Kwang Do. Well, he had a falling out with them and started his own thing. What's weird is that he doesn't claim TKD. just plain Koo self defense. All they do is exercise, you know push ups, sit ups, jumping jacks, etc... Then for test they Break plastic re-breakable boards to demonstrate their awesome power. the class is filled with rejects from all the areas more traditional schools of martial arts and "master Koo" sells them black belts when they've paid enough. anyway I guess it's better than the other "karate" class we have here. Cade Lee Karate. (see my post with his link).
