    I was in a crappy TKD school for a long time, and was a BB. I was extremely lucky/smart, as during point sparring I'd always go all out, and it actually worked fairly well in real life. Even still, Im much happier with my MMA/BJJ, where Im not yelled at every time I spar.

    Right you are, Patfromlogan:

    In the early eighties, my Kyokushin didn't work. So badly was it lacking, in fact, that I floored the imbecile mentioned in the OP without feeling his "punch" in the least.

    Pretty sad, I know...but I've recovered from that trauma in the intervening decades.

    Really.

    However, what you said about learning a lot about yourself and mentality is most definitely the truth!!! I may not have learned a great deal about fighting, but I learned a lot of other things that I feel laid the groundwork for my success in MuayThai...
    What was the guy's first name. He just reminds me of someone I knew in NYC. The dude I knew was under the Bujinkan.

    But what the hell? Vieux Normand can suck my Kyokushin belt, what kind of bullsit KK did he do that taught him that sort of bullcrapolay.

    16 yo High school.
    I had a year or so of TKD.
    Didn't really think I was a great fighter or anything.

    Actually Let me emphasize this,
    I didn't have a single move that could be called effective
    besides a really fast/hard spinning back kick and jump kicks and those aren't the most practical.

    but the fact that i was asian and I could do kicks was enough to "front" and ward most would be bullies away. (at the time I was a extremely skinny 5'4 less then 109lb)

    except for this one kid at soccer.
    He trips me up twice. I ask him dude what the ****?
    and turn around and walk away.

    He rushes me from behind forcing me to the ground (face in ground) and puts me in a full nelson while laughing. It occurs to me at this time I have no fucking idea what to do in this situation and I've lost my temper and snapped. No thinking just struggling to get out. (Being he was probably 5'10 5'11ish and had a good 50lb or more on me, easier said then done)

    He then lets me go and starts running. I chase angrily. and then he is up against the fence in a high boxing guard(fists up by head) daring me to do something so he can kill me.

    I did the only thing I knew how to do. The spinning back kick directly into his stomach followed by a second one launched slightly off balance at his chest.

    He went to the ground and had a hard time catching his breath to get up. by this time the teachers were there and we were being dragged before the administration

    getting out of that without getting beat down was just by sheer luck, him underestimating me and lack of skill on his part.

    Didn't take martial arts again til college. (FMA and limited MT/Judo/BJJ training)
    and I've put on a good 50 - 60lb of muscle and two inches of height since then.

    I feel slightly better about my chances about defending myself now.
    but IMO. I'm barely adaquate and need to improve.
    That's how i'll always see myself no matter how adept I get.

    Then all those japanese sports players, who go around yelling osu after someone scores a goal, hits a home run etc, are all yelling good morning then?
