    Seriously. This is about as practical as using knitting to defend yourself.

    Even this (which the the group I have a black belt under) which at least has some 'aliveness' to it is useless...

    I just feel so bad for the people who do this....

    that second video ..if they knew how to punch and block maybe could start to be somewhat effective.

    have to say though good kicks.

    I do have to agree with the headbutt to the bricks, and also the headbutting the nail in the board. Altho to be honest I did think for a minute when he flipped it over he was gonna knock it back out, and I woulda paid to have seen that.

    TKD BB, that was just a workout of all ranks with the GM. I think the main thing was just that he got to work on some very basics with the students at that school.

    I know it's TMA but other than that it was simply the old line drills. How 'alive' is practicing a block over and over? Not very, it's about muscle memory and doing it a billion times etc, the aliveness comes in sparring and other drills.

    And have you SEEN knitting needles? those bastards are huge ;p.

    I know people hate TMA's especially TKD, but if it was _just_ wrestling, what would that leave us with? Don't get me wrong, I love BJJ, I just don't get the loathing and disdain for the old methods of MA's (TKD being very Shotokan etc).

    the only thing that can make a TKD class like that slightly worthwhile is if the students kick the living daylights out of eachother afterwards.

    and the master has to hand out some whoopass too. nothing like getting owned to keep your respect of a person at a high level.

    No. Line drills are terrible(I've done enough to know), form was terrible, WHAT THE **** THEY HOLD LEGS IN AIR ALL POSY LIKE WHILE THE LAY ON GROUND???

    And Judo = Older (thus more traditional) than TKD and is well loved here. Is it because TKD is "Traditional" that it is hated? HELLS TO THE NO!!! It's because TKD SUCKS (HARD)!!!

    As far as the third video goes, I had two thoughts.

    1. When you need a lot of training and you don't have much time, you need a Montage!

    2. Said montage looked like every bad '80s MA movie rolled into one. Seriously, where the hell were the ninjas?
