Good stuff! It is hard to glean through the hype and get down to it...that;s what this essay does!
Thanks! This helps a lot :bow:
Very nice explanation. I might add that there are basically two completely different types of tkd schools. For the most part, tae kwon do schools are one thing & taekwondo schools are another.
Good summary for a complicated question. The best advice in the article is to go and check out the school and the training to decide if it is what the student is looking for.
Very good explanation of a lot of things, including asking what people want to get out of it, which is often overlooked.
I think that if you talk about Koryu, you really should mention that about 90 percent of the stuff calling itself that outside of Japan is fraud.
Nice article .... I tend to talk about personalities, culture and beliefs of the individual. I also take into account the perceiving person, the environments in which they live and work, their sensory mode, i.e. the dominant and secondary sense modes for learning and perceiving, and their perceptions of perceptions.
It, as you state, not a matter of the system, the style or the branch of martial system but the matching of the person, the personality and the matching system, style or branch best suited to them, etc.
Really nice article,
p.s. best not to forget that it sometimes comes down the the dojo environment, culture and training atmosphere .... look to the sensei on this one because no matter the system, style or branch it comes down to the sensei .... does his manner, morals and other such things meet your personality needs and goals?
p.s.s. this could go on for a long long post
