    ...that is ok you don't scare me little boy...maybe you could come over and rip me a new one your more then wellcome.

    I was being polite since the last web site, which I mentioned in my post took of my masters name etc saying I would get them into trouble and this is on all sites.

    So I do beg your pardon about being a stupid newbie although I feel I am not. I was just testing out what I can and can not say which I think is fair.

    The master: Grand Master Y Won (that is all I know, no first name)

    Grade: 7th Dan in TKD

    Trained: New Malden-Top Notch Gym Surrey/Ilseworth London, Isleworth gym/David Lyod's-Hounslow London

    Gynasium name:Jidokwan

    Grade price-Every three months you paid 30 for 1 grading and I think 150 for black belt (although my mate got hers for 30 because she was Korean) . One guy paid about 60 to go from blue belt straight to red belt and his exam/grading was poor but he still passed.

    Lesson: all lessons were an hour long, we hardly did much most of the kids were running about and being annoying. I was told to teach kids even though I am only blue belt and not very good at all. He actually had kids take the lessons, at one point a yellow belt who was about 8 years old took the lesson. He said it was good experience (the kid nearly cried).
    None of the black belts stayed for long and the one's that did got special treatment like 30 grading for 2nd Dan. Other then that he never taught us how to spar we learnt our moves badly also he continually had a go and made you feel stupid even though we were taught by him so what we learnt was his fault.

    Other:He would charge 15 for breaking boards, also he charged me 20 to do a demonstration in self defence I didn't pay it as I thought it was silly as you can guess anyone Korean got in the demonstration free, one poor kid paid 20 to break, a wooden board (not a slot one) that had already got slits in it to break it easy and my ex master didn't even let him do it in the end the kid lost 20. He has a bit of a reputation in London circles, reason why I am interested in whether he is known to anyone here, it is a long shot I know as I am not sure how many people train in the UK and London.

    I just want to name and shame him as he is a poor teacher but if anyone does know of him, well you can tell me :toothy5: there is more but I would have to really think abut it as there is quite allot.

    Thanks for listening
    Tansy

    Hey Tansy,

    Thanks for the info. I don't suppose you have a website for this school? Seems to be almost text book McDojo including the crap about paying for rank and getting it even if you're no good. The thing about younger ranks teaching seems a little odd too. I mean I'm all for having juniors show the class a thing that maybe they know really well but not teaching a whole class.

    Also, don't take my initial shots to heart I read a lot of people who come on here with an axe to grind and are just looking for someone to support them. I can't believe a site would take umbrage with you posting info regarding a school, that's messed up. Mind you the 'I'm telling on you' mentality is more telling than anything else.

    What organization is this guy hooked up with?
