    He brought this on himself. He has no right to complain & his self-ingratiating posting style is nothing more than ego masturbation.

    Masturbation is more fun.

    isn't a kick a kick though. If I learn these TKD kicks won't that help down the line when I start muay thaim laso the flexibility that will come with it. I am torn with indecision at the moment though. I just seem to find throws and the such easier to pick up then striking, besides the one-steps the trainign wasn't dodgy at all.

    Also Auslander didn't i basically say that this post was self indulgent in the first place no need to repeat it really. It probably doesn't hurt to post my first experience of TKD on a martial arts website in the general forum...

    1) This belongs in the TKD forum. That is why we have a TKD forum.

    2) No, a kick is not a kick. Being taught WRONG which it sounds like you are means you have to unlearn things.

    If your school had a reputable Olympic-style team like several universities do, you would learn footwork, distancing, and kicking in an alive environment, which, while not perfect, will have carryover to other striking venues. If you were training under one of Hee Il Cho's schools, you could end up with very good hardcore striking skills.

    It sounds like you're getting typical TKDrotty. What association is your instructor with?

    This here.

    The problem with some Martial Arts is that they can teach bad habits, bad habits are worse the more you do them, it's like smoking, the longer you do it, the harder it is to give up.

    I did TKD for 5 years and got my Black Belt. We competed in full contact tourneys such as Kyokushin (AKKA) and W.A.M.A. Even with that kind of training I had some bad habits, especially with my punching, a lot of which I've now come to resolve over the last 2 or so years I've been doing Kyokushin.

    My point being, you don't want to be doing the wrong thing, mainly touch sparring and what not, those bad habits are possibly THE WORST thing you could get accustomed to, I see it a lot with new students who come from styles that don't do hard contact.

    bop, listen to your own misgivings about your instruction. Your first post sounds like you're worried about the quality. There's your sign.

    You sound worried about having to re-learn or un-learn things later. Try the fencing, see if you like it. Even if you learn crappy habits, it's not going to burn you later when you want to round out MMA training.

    Are you in high school? I would go for fencing since like a semester of TKD or fencing is not going to be life changing, but fencing IMDAO looks a little better on a college application due to age and snoodiness.
