    am studying under steve powell in manchester, england. anyone ever heard of him? Cant get over how the people i learnt from before were putting ideas into my head that this jumping reverse turning kick stuff is actually useful in real situations. the most useful things i was taught was the releases, simple punches and body movement the latter two of which has helped me catch up with the rest of the jkd class- but cant help thinking i would have been better learning these without the pulled punches and 360 degree spins- ie a different martial art. am loving using my whole body to fight now-especially the elbows and knees. i wont condemn tkd altogether cause i had a great time learning it and i do miss having such regular sparring but cant help wondering if i fell for the dobok, coloured belts (everyone would like to be a black belt in something) and trophys of which i have a few without questioning what is useful. I guess that is the essence of jkd and why I have found myself so impressed with this new angle i have found in the martial arts.
    I've heard of Steve Powell. My WC teacher knows him and speaks well of him and has his link on our school's site. So yeah; he's good :)
