    I quit after getting my first black belt because the school I was a part of was in the process of lowering their standards A painfully honest KC Elbows

    The crap that many schools do is not the crap I was taught or train in or teach.

    Dam nit... it made sense when it was running through my head.

    ESPN 2 has Karate breaking championships on

    Some guys in TKD uniforms are kicking boards with running side kicks right now. I've never seen this before so I think I'll watch it for a while.

    Some dude's gonna break 13 slabs of concrete with his elbow but they have spacers.

    Hey, he got it. I wonder how many he could get without spacers.

    Another dude just tried for 14, but he only got 13 of them. He ran up and jumped in the air in order to generate more power for his strike.

    Get this, if it's a tie, they go by PERCENTAGE broken and not NUMBER broken.

    So if guy A breaks 15/15 and guy B breaks 15/16, guy A would win cuz he got 100%. Strange.

    i've seen tha stuf before. i cant stand it. the most i've seen broken on that stuff is 16 or 17 by some big fat guy(imagine that) he jumped up and landed on the stack with his elbow. lets see them try all that stuff with no spacers. watching their forms is so annoying to me. they screem a lot do a bunch of fancy twirly stuff and they are done. kinda like a bad american version of modern wushu. i wish espn would show some more traditional stuff not just that extreme M.A. garbage. they had a wushu guy on there once and he worked everyone.

    I made the mistake of going to the Battle of Atlanta a couple of years ago. All the screaming made the place sound like a nuthouse. Don't get me started about the "musical/creative forms" division, or the toothpick thin graphite "bo" these people use. Also, point-sparring.......
    SevenStar: It's hilarious seeing people's reactions when they see a big, black dude with a sword walking toward them.

    WTF? How did we go from the White Haired Devil strangling and beating guys to death in a teahouse, to Mr Miyagi and Jhoon Rhee?

    yeah, i was more afraid of her bark than her 'skills'. she could deafen you if you were near by.

    i thought the girl-kid with the mettalic staff might have some potential for additional staff and pole arm forms.

    but you know, none of thier performance forms were balanced in terms of demonstrating skills. for example the girl that did high back kicks could only do them with one leg. and the girl who did the 'fast' forward sidekicks couldn't even extend to a straight or full extension of the kick movement.

    one of the forms (skinny african american) looked like a karat-i-fied version of the hong hawk step.

    the guy named lu i've seen before. he tries to add soft stuff to his floor routine ( like this time he added 'lifting the sky' with the advanced stance position) but he always gets scored lower for doing more chinese orientated skills.

    but that's several of the reasons Paul Mitchel is known for: Performance Martial Arts. if it looks good (flashy) they'll put it on. the more karate it looks the better it is for them. thier dynasty comments are basically true: they favour certain school lineages in thier competitions.

    their main breaking competition was several weeks ago. this year the bricks were really hard. you could see the cracks the force made through the unbroken bricks sometimes four bricks down the stack from the last broken one.

    in tonights breaking there was one guy whom, i think, clearly demonstrated chi in his technique ans the bricks were breaking two or three bricks ahead of his foot with a clear compresion wave ahead of the penetrating block. was that lu again?

    For one thing, he didn't use spacers, didn't have to jump at the bricks, etc. He also put a whoopin' on a number of people, or so I've heard
