Starting Tae Kwon Do at 50. Are You Nuts? – David Haynes, author

Starting Tae Kwon Do at 50. Are You Nuts? – David Haynes, author

Articles
Water aerobics would make more sense; or maybe even yoga, so why choose one of the “hardest” of hard martial arts, known for its powerful, and sometimes aerial, kicks? The short answer is that it was accidental. My 11-year-old son wanted to give it a try, so I brought him in to Koryo Do School of Tae Kwon Do for a try out class because it was the closest to our house. I took a seat, intending to relax while I watched my son work up a seat. I only got to sit for about five minutes before being invited to join in and learn some simple self-defense moves. I was hooked. Unfortunately, my son discontinued coming after about a year, but I continued. Almost four years and about 1500 hours of…

They Call Me Master

They Call Me Master

[caption id="attachment_469" align="alignleft" width="300"] taekwondo master testing[/caption] They call me Master, yet as I look at my students I wonder. Some of my students are much faster than me; yet they still call me Master. Many, by far are already more flexible than me and dare I say stronger; yet they still call me Master.  Quite a few could easily beat me in a competition; yet they call me Master.  Their progress executing forms and using weapons is nothing but an expression of art, each one an artist in its own way; yet they call me master. But what is a master may I ask?  I did dare to ask this question to two of my senior students and was pleased with the answer, or the lack of as neither…

Excelence in the Martial Arts

Excelence in the Martial Arts

Articles
A good friend of mine send me an article from a blog titled "The difference between commitment and technique".  I read this short article and was impressed by its message.  I also was fascinated as in a very succinct manner Mr. Godin Presented an issue which it seems is more common that I thought. [caption id="attachment_714" align="alignright" width="300"] safe and challenging learning environment[/caption] As Mr. Godin wrote:  "We spend way too much time teaching people technique. Teaching people to be good at flute, or C++ or soccer.   It's a waste because the fact is, most people can learn to be good at something, if they only choose to be, if they choose to make the leap and put in the effort and deal with the failure and the frustration and…

How to Choose a Martial Arts School

How to Choose a Martial Arts School

Articles
This is a question that I don’t get too often but that I try to answer every time I receive a call of a potential new student.  Of course most callers start the conversation with; how much do you charge?  This is understandable as most people don’t understand the difference between the martial arts so they try to compare them based on a measure they understand: money.  However if at any time the phrase of comparing apples to oranges ever fit in a situation this [caption id="attachment_688" align="alignright" width="300"] Picking the right school for me[/caption] is it. First, let me emphasize that not all martial arts are the same.  To help people understand I normally start with the basic category of “hard” versus “soft” .  In other words, schools that…
