    Taekwondo/Aikido hybrid! brilliant!

    http://www.alpinetkd.com/index.html

    A kids program, an aikido program, and an "X-team." How can you go wrong with this place? If there's a fault with this place it's their lack luster webdesign. I mean, common... if you're trying to make money then do a bit better marketing than that.

    I found this site when I did a search for Aikido within the same city. A friend's father is an Aikido instructor and I was seeing if he had a site, but I found this gem instead.


    This makes me wonder what goes through parents' minds when they enroll their children in stuff like this. I would think that they would do some research, but I guess if you're just looking for a daycare, then who cares right? It seems that this place is good at marketing to parents' ignorance or apathy.

    Aikido/Taekwondo, if I am not mistaken is just Hapkido.

      hmm... The technical prowess of TKD fused with the chi power of Aikido. I'm in.

      And I'm sure that will be best demonstrated with their X-team.

          I haven't looked at the site yet ... but sure ... Hapkido could be marketed that way . I suspect it will problably be much worse than your "average bullshit stripmall hapkido" as far as usefullness and self defense is concerned.

          You should take a camera and go check it out . I love pretty circular compliant training . Some of that choreagraphy can be tricky .

But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

              that would make sense; that way they can get you to pay for both seperately. Actually, I can't confirm if that's the case.

              They do offer "aerobic kickboxing" too.

                  Of course they do! Why do you think they're such good fighters? :icon_thum

                      Straight aikido? As opposed to queer Aikido?

                              I love the idea of you guys exchanging banter in English. It confirms the truth of all the movies I've seen where foreigners speak English to one another, except with accents.

                              Now I'm probably going to get flamed because one of you speaks Catalan, and...
