    What type of kickboxing?
    I'm sorry if I posted wrong thread. I'm noobie and english is not my homelanguage. But I think that kickboxing is older and more traditional than for example sanda or Nisei Goju Jitsu.

    We have no a special name for kickboxing, except "potkunyrkkeily" which means kickboxing in finnish. We are a member of WAKO. We fight Full Contact rules and Low Kick rules. Light Contact rules we use to train for Full Contact fights. I am the Light Contact champion of Finland, but it's not a goal, it's preparation. There are also K-1-rules used in Finland, but nobody from my club has ever fight under these rules. Perhaps on some day and we train knees little bit also.

    1. What is your style?

    2. Does your belt train stricky as a class, or do people get promoted individually at a time?

    3. How do you spar (point, freespar, etc.)?

    4. How often do you spar?

    5. Does your instructor give you written materials to study from and use for reference?

    6. Does your school offer weapons training?

    7. Does your school have an age policy?

    8. Does your instructor spar you ever?
    1. Taiji (with sword) and Hsing-I, but the school offers more.

    2. We don't do belts. Once you've been given (and presumably understand) the lessons that constitute a class, you may take the next class in that course of study. The courses of study branch off into different emphasis.

    3. We don't "spar" per se as a part of the curriculum, but rather use sensitivty and awareness excercises like pushing hands to develop core skills. I'm not sure if any of the classes I don't yet qualify for get into more intense and competitive practice.

    4. We practice the above mentioned excercises in every relevant class.

    5. Yes. A rack of instructional handouts is in the waiting room.

    6. An extensive variety of weapons, yes.

    7. No children.

    8. If you're lucky, the instructor will choose you as an example to illustrate the drills.

    gotta be at least 15-16 to be a BB, though there are a few younger ones runnin around in rare cases

    not when i was in Va, but in the caribbean my instructor beat my ass every time we sparred or made me spar one of the younger instructors / senior belts

    The other day, someone asked one of our school's top fighters for some MMA guard-passing techniques. The instructor pulled a student aside, laid him on his back, and broke the technique down, step-by-step. After demoing the move a couple times, he got up and said he wants to show the move live now, at which point he turned to me and said "Aaron, you got a mouthguard?"

    For the next five minutes I was scrambling on my back like a retard, desperately trying to get to my feet while my instructor hovered overtop and molested me like a drunk uncle. I could not get to my feet. I could not hit the single leg. I could not get him into my closed guard. I was fighting back with everything I had, the fruits of years of hard training and conditioning, and still I was completely helpless. He knew every escape, every way I would attempt to turn, roll, scoot, or otherwise defend myself. It was miserable and excruciating and embarrassing and wonderful.

    And that, my friend, is why my school is better than your school.

    2) My name is not Ian Brandon Something.

    3) Kacey is coming with me now. I have stolen her from the other Christian Weston Chandler.

    This survey makes me extremely sad . . .

    What's really amazing is that in about 80-90% of TMA schools, items 2, 5, and 7 would be a huge source of inexplicable pride, but the embarrassment of 3 and 6 would go totally unnoticed.

    My instructor gives us handouts occasionally. He's got a list of techniques he wants everyone to be competent at before they are promoted to blue, for instance.

    I can think of several good reasons to give your students supplemental handouts. I suspect, however, that the reasons I am thinking of are not the same as many . . . well, you know.
