They teach the Jhoon Rhee forms but apparently have previously taught the Taegeuk forms.
They teach taekwondo, teuk-gong moo sul (to students in the leadership program and are planning a seperate class for it, they have a seperate belt and test for it already) and various weapons.

Style: Judo + sports ju-jutsu
+ SD aspect ranked lowest out of five training benefits
- Introductory offer with "official uniform included" - wtf?
- "Special forces martial art" shows a jumpkick, yeah right
- Image 1/3 down on front page shows two women being RNC'd by two guys. And smiling!
- Quote: "Martial Arts without philosophy is merely street fighting". So that's bad, mmkay?
Seems to be hard focused on training for children. This could be a good thing as long as the SD propaganda is in relation to the actual usefulness.
As an adult, I'd be wary to start training there, but I'd have to check it out myself first. There are some warning signals (see above).

The Tukkong thing is a warning sign. Which Tukkong Musul org is he associated with? The two in the US are bogus scams not linked to the two real orgs in Korea. We has a self proclaimed Tukkong master posting here for a while before Oldman34 liberally raped his cyber ass.

they do spar, with gear and contact but not full power.
he is associated with tgmsa.org Korean Teuk-Gong Moo Sul Association
He actually went to Korea to learn so i'm guessing this may be one of the two real organizations you talked about?

When they spar, what do they do with their hands? Do they compete, in what kind of events?
Posted On:3/26/2007 6:01pm
They punch (hooks, uppercuts, jabs...), they are taught to block with them if they can't get out of the way and to keep them up by their face.
They also do go in/host tournaments I know one that is supposedly big that they go in is the tiger balm internationals http://www.tigerbalmcanada.com/contest.html

That is good to hear, do you know what sparring categories? Are you interested in competing yourself?
