Thread: Misadventures with Master Cho
4/15/2009 1:37pm, #11
Now that might be a novel idea. The funny thing is, that I live a street a way from his dojang. I could pretend to be interested and say I want to sit in and watch a class ot two. That might give me a chance to see what Cho is all about away from teachign college classes. Otherwise, I will just go with the flow.
The onegood thing out of that class are the stretches I learned.

After listening to your critique and suggestions......
......I would like to participate in a free class or two to see how things are done here and decide if I want to change styles. Use the free classes and classroom experience and produce a nice write-up.
Read a few of the other "Investigatory Threads" to see a suggested style of class review and post it up.
Good luck and after all is said and done, enjoy your time.

I am the only one who sees an ethical problem with Cho soliciting business while he is acting as a representitve of the University? That would be like a Molbio professor telling his students to use a new drug from a company whose board he sat on. Its wrong.Now darkness comes; you don't know if the whales are coming. - Royce Gracie

Beware my power... Blue Lantern's light!

The University would "profit" from having one of their faculty rep the Uni as a board member.
In this case, it is pretty much expected for this clown to rep his school. I figure he probably is getting the University minimum in exchange for his weekly promotion.

To the OP
If you practice Shuri Ryu, I can't imagine your kicks looking anything like what a TKD instructor expects of his students. They are different philosophies of kicking. If YOU want to kick high, and kick often, then that is a personal choice of yours. But if your Shuri ryu is what I think it is, you should NOT be made to feel inadequate especially since your style intentionally has less, and lower kicks.
As a person who does karate and box, how do you find Master Cho's punching technique? His guard? Poor, okay, excellent? If poor or okay, did you have an overriding desire to recruit him to your boxing gym?
I'm not saying don't give the guy a chance. Just don't feel like you have to because he made you feel inadequate re: kicking.

Brother today is your lucky day because I'm here to solve all your problems. There is a part of your body, between the legs and the torso, around the back, cleft in two. Take it to the nearest Muay Thai school. Thank me later.

As for Master Cho's punches, I would say they're fine technique-wise, but he seems to like to do a lot of punch spinning backfirt or punch spinning kick combinations. That's all well and good for a tournament, but how about in real life? Are they even practical?

I don't know anything about lesbo cults. Never even heard of it.
But personally, I like Shuri-ryu and my current school.
