    Also does your name mean you are the Goo King, or that you are gooking.

    If its the latter what does gooking mean, I have a feeling I might be gooking it too...

    If those are the real terms then thanks.

    My name means "goo king". King of the goo. Which means absouletly nothing.

    Oh, how do I pronounce "Dohng", can you write that in hangul please?

    Because I'm not sure if I'm reading "Dohng" phonetically. I studied up to level 3 (low-intermediate level) at Yonsei Korean Language Institute, so I can double check it with the hangul spelling to make sure.

    The reason why I want to know the Korean terms, is because I want to have conversations with other Koreans about Mcdojos and Bullshido and what their take on it is. Obviously, most of them, even those who speak english fluently, wouldn't understand those terms because they're martial arts jargon words (heck, most americans wouldn't know those words either).

    So I'm going to try and use the Korean terms to see if they're familiar with those.

    McDojang for McDojo, but in Korea it seems friggin every kid got his black belt at 8, so just call it 'Dojang'. Hell, my wife got her red belt in school there in 6 months, they don't care about rank until 2nd dan it seems. It's a standing joke, i have a black belt in TKD.... I got it when I was 9 etc.
    It's the ones who continue into adult training that are taken seriously (there that is).

    To relate it though, look for 'commercial' or 'professional' school. (not meaning like 'fight' professional, but commercialized).

    Bullshido, wouldn't have a translation. Just look up 'fake' in Korean, or 'untrue' misleading etc.
