    Dojo Questions

    Hey guys, just for my personal enlightenment (I want to see how my dojo policies compare to others), I was wondering if you guess could answer a few questions. This survey is aimed primarily at traditional striking arts.

    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. What is your style? Rex Kwon Do

    2. Does your belt train stricky as a class, or do people get promoted individually at a time? All test at the same time, only the survivor passes

    3. How do you spar (point, freespar, etc.)? Our techniques are too d34dly

    4. How often do you spar? I do not need to spar, sparing does not work on t3h str33t

    5. Does your instructor give you written materials to study from and use for reference? I AM the instructor--Sifu-Soke!, but all have read my autobiography. They also purchase my DVDs. Most have a shrine to me

    6. Does your school offer weapons training? All the major Klingon and Jedi weapos

    7. Does your school have an age policy? So long as there is someone old enough to sign the contract, there is no descrimination.

    8. Does your instructor spar you ever? I AM the instructor!!!! [Stop that!--Ed.]

    Sorry . . . always wanted to do that!

    Anyways, style is too the upper right. It is one of the main Okinawan styles. My teachers spar with me every time I see them. Sparing is light-point to full depending on whether it is tournament or more self-defense oriented. As enough people HERE will tell you the strategy for most point-tournaments is different than full contact which is different than self-defense. Pads for the hands, mouth-pieces, cups. No other padding.

    Let me see . . . some basic written materials on style history and the like, but otherwise depending on what someone needs--stretching, conditioning, that sort of thing.

    Weapons? None specifically. Kobudo is a separate style that some students pursue. As for knives and guns, people go to specialists at seminars.

    One of my teachers does not teach children. The others will, but in separate classes--no "junior black belts" or other such stuff.

    My instructors spar all of the time. They insist on sparing me whenever I express an opinion . . . for some reason it is always full contact on those nights. . . .

    P.S. Below dan grade is up to individual schools based on time and ability. Some schools will have formal tests, whereas other simply congratulate you when you reach the level. Some will do both. Dan testing is by recommendation of the teacher, and is then done before a test board. There are specific recognized boards in the country and in Okinawa.

    1. What is your style?

    Kickboxing.

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

    People are promoted when they are good enough to pass a graduate. Everybody, except a basic course, train together.

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

    Normal kickboxing rules, but without frontkicks to the head. Contact depends on them who spar. Beginners and non-competitors spar light. Also if the pair is unbalanced, sparring is light. But competitors spar with quite hard contact. I have been knocked down several times and once knocked out.

    4. How often do you spar?

    It depends. Near competitions something 20-30 rounds in week. Off season less.

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

    No, but he writes training programs for me.

    6. Does your school offer weapons training?

    No. We are a sport club.

    7. Does your school have an age policy?

    Yes. 15 years.

    8. Does your instructor spar you ever?

    Yes. I am about 50 pounds of muscle heavier and 6 inches taller, but he kicks me ass very easy.

    8. Does your instructor spar you ever?

    1) Gracie Jiu-jitsu, Judo, Aikido
    2) Individual Promotion in all 3
    3) I spar full contact MMA ruleset and Grappling only (both Judo and BJJ competition rules).
    4) I spar Mondays Wedsdays Fridays and Saturdays both MMA and BJJ sparing (last 45 minutes of BJJ class and MMA class). I also spar the last 30 minutes of judo class on tuesdays and thursdays (when I go, which I haven't gone in a while). Sometimes we spar in aikido on saturdays, but its only with a few people in the class and maybe 15 minutes with grappling only rules.
    5) I do get written materials in judo in the form of the USJA handbook. My aikido instructor has also supplied vast librarys of videos to check out and watch on our own time.
    6) No, but aikido does require use of jo and bokken, but its not really weapons training.
    7) No.
    8) Judo - yes, but only mat work. Aikido - No, but he does let us throw him. BJJ/MMA - Yes, and I have the bruises all over to nurse tonight. He has a mean jab.

    1. Judo
    2. Everybody trains together. Sensei tells us to wear the next belt when he feels like we're ready. With the exception of black, where you have to grade for it.
    3. Yes. Randori both tachiwaza and newaza.
    4. Every class. Actually that's all we'll do. From time to time we'll do moving uchikomi.
    5. No.
    6. Maybe in the aikido and JJJ classes.
    7. Nope. But most of the students are adults. There are only 3 kids.
    8. All the time.
