    this is why your trashing did not meet the criteria.

    Usually you don't get to call people noobs or any varient thereof non ironically until your 3rd month.

    Sorry I was busy.

    Sco if I was you I would find a dark cornor and get a razor blade. There procede to cut yourself till you bleed all the TKD out of you. Then you can either kill yourself because you no loves you or start at the a real dojo.

    Welcome to bullshido n00b.

    i train in a friend's garage atm. whether or not it's legit, is in the air, because no-one there is an official teacher(although one of the guys is/used to be a boxer). however they get around a lot and have had some real training and pretty much share what they've learned.

    it's free, so i'm not complaining

    In other words, you aren't training.

    Yes unless your instructor has the following you're not in a real school:

    1.) The best white boy name (Like Joe Smith) while claiming Asian Heritage.
    2.) Prison Tattoos, nothing says legit instructor like some hastly done blue ink tats
    3.) Asian weapons on the wall covered in dust (listen he could teach you but its too dangerous)
    4.) A tea set or a water fall somewhere in his office.
    5.) Pictures of long dead masters. Hell if they're dead its hard to question their rationale.
    6.) A really old "looking" black belt (if the belt is old he's had it a long time)
    7.) At least one Asian pin up (hell if he's into Asian chicks you know he's good)
    8.) A pony tail, come on all good fighters have long hair, don't you watch the UFC
    9.) Pictures of him with celebrities in the Martial Art world (BEST OF LUCK, SUPERFOOT etc...)
    10.) A collection of martial arts magazines (come on, if he reads martial arts magazines he must be good)

    TKD

    PS - Some of the toughest SOBs I've ever trained with train in garage gyms. If you're going to stay there just make sure that these guys aren't hiding in the garage cause they'd get tooled anywhere else. The reasons they have for training there should make sense.

    HEY!!! Those tatoos were not easy. . . .

    Funny, there is an Okinawan in America who use to have the "long pony tail." An Okinawan in Okinawa looked at his picture, smiled, and mockingly said, "Okinawan Samurai!" Such is a bit like a New Yorker wearing a ten-gallon hat and calling people "pardner."

    Welcome 'sco.

    I [Troll.--Ed.] participate on a number of "skeptical" or scientific boards and one of the hardest things to do is admit you have been in a "cult" or in a "woo movement" or basically have been wasting time and money. You are to be congratulated. Seriously.
