He goes to TKD to learn TKD, not to be told to work the instructor's crappling techniques. That's fucking BS!

    BTW, LOL @ the "You're attacking him wrong" part of the story, Kengou.

    Lol, that reminds me of when we drilled the scissor takedown from head control. It's all fun and games until you tweak a knee.
    :google:

    Number of bottles of beer downed by me and my girlfriend within a half hour while playing the Channel 7 "how many times will they say 'snow' game" during the "Blizzard of '06": 3.5 each.

    I'm not sure off the top of my head. There are newspaper clippings all over the dojang lobby of him winning this and that, I'll write some of it down and get back to you.

    Bodar,

    That's why I said "What did you expect?" I mean he's taking TKD not grappling. His teacher will of course not know how to grapple because TKD doesn't teach that. I just thought that if he wanted to improve his overall skill as a fighter he would have to take something other than TKD.

    Heh.

    Actually, I could send you to some decent TKD teachers who could teach you grappling.

    The school teaches mostly TKD, some heavy bag work and sparring, but also occasionally we do self-defense, ground techniques, throws, etc.

    He does take something else though. He's a BJJ white belt (see Style Field). Just a misunderstanding between us, then. Still, it sucks that he has to get "t3h d34dly cr4ppl1ng" foisted on him. I guess just suck it up and don't let him give you any bad habits, Kengou. Or go find another school that focuses strictly on standup. Although, it sounds like this is your only complaint with your school. You know, I have to say I'm surprised no one played the "that's what you get with TKD" card yet... and we're already on page 3. :new_silly

    TKD sucks!

    It sucks so bad, it's the UberSuck!

    Go learn a manly art, like Wing Kido!
