Random Update

March 1, 2012

So it’s been a while! I randomly decided to see what was up on this blog. and then i thought it’d be fun to post as i havent done any blogging in a while.

so to get us up to date, all the origional writers have for the most part gone our separate ways. as far as i know we all still train. I’ve started teaching at a new studio, which is tough but it’s the wayof a martial artist to pass on knowledge to the┬ánew generation. I took and passed my black-belt examination the summer of 2010 and I am now preparing for my 2nd Dan examination in july. am i nervous? yes! but i have a great master and im trainning hard so, i should be ready in time. in the near term I’m competing in a regional tournament march 10th and it will be my first time sparring as a blackbelt. should be fun!

well hopefully I’ll be posting more in the future, we’ll see. I wish you health and happiness, till next time.

Taekwondo fighting and training. Part 1. What’s good for you.

March 3, 2008

If you are a tall person, I can give you one kick that will define your Martial Arts succes, the Axe kick, Dun Dun Dun! It’s a fact, tall people in the 6’4+ range can expect this kick to work well universally for anyone shorter then you. Use this kick! I’m not joking, if you’re tall use it! One kick on the head “bonk” and there’s a point, if you’re doing point sparring, and if you’re fighting knock outs, just knock him out! Also for tall people, smaller shorter people will take advantage of the fact that you will come to them, they’re not gonna go to you unless their sure that they can get a point. So, They’re gonna wait till you’re coming at them and their gonna either close the distance to fast for you to get an attack in, OR, they’re gonna throw in a straight kick. Now then, some of you might wonder, “phiff, whats a straight kick from a small 5’3 guy that weighs 110 pounds gonna do to me?” The answer, A LOT. If they go all in will the kick without drawing back, YOU WILL BE KNOCKED OFF YOU’RE FEET! I have to fight a LOT of taller bigger and heavier people then me, and this is a good kick for the little guy, either front kick, side kick, but the best is back kick. Or jumping back kick. Please, please, bear in mind this is not the only way, and most experienced fighters will know this stuff by heart and WILL use it if you give them the chance. I’ll post a thing on shorter people and continue the taller person thing again, and again until I’ve covered everything.

CartWheel Tutorial Haze

February 29, 2008

What? you don’t think you can do a cartwheel? of course you can, there easy.

First, for the sake of this tutorial, we will assume you have two hands, two legs, and weigh less then 300 pounds.

Now heres how to do a Cartwheel

From a standing position bring your hands up above your head and throw them down in the direction you are facing, (pick which ever side is more comfortable for you) if you go to the left your left hand should reach the ground a short time before your right hand, just the reverse if you went to the right. Then as you throw your self onto your hands you put your right hand down as well, DON’T FLINCH if you do your going to fall over, if you don’t and you commit to the cartwheel you can probably do one on your first try. Once you get your hands on the ground and your legs in the air you do really have to do much, just let your momentum carry you over. Now, the leg that’s going to reach the ground first is your back leg, which ever that was when you started your cartwheel, your going to swing that leg down and land on the ball of your foot, then bring the other leg and the rest of you after it. And thats all there is to it.

Cartwheels don’t take a lot of effort, momentum does most of the work for you, you just have to swing a leg down and keep your elbows straight.

points to remember

1) Take a running start if you think that will help you.

2) Your hands don’t both go down at the same time, but one after another.

3) Try and keep your legs above your body and your toes pointed.

4) Your back leg is the one that you will land on first.

5) Keep trying and you’ll get it, anyone can do a cartwheel.

Have Fun guys and girls. ^_^

Types of MA’s and basic intel for the unlearned, (and maybe something for pros)

February 28, 2008

There are many types of MA’s as everybody knows, but I’ll try to write down some of the more common ones and map them out for you.

1st: There are the most common type of MA that people think of when they hear the words Martial Artist. The basic bruise-break-and-destroy type would have under it’s banner the likes of Karate, Taekwondo, a few kinds of Kung Fu, and maybe, just maybe Judo. This type has usally one or two things in common. They all involve using a mix of foward and backward enegy. Meaning, they practice using your hands and feet to destroy the enemy, but also involve using the energy of the opponent, but this is more like the second type of MA. All MA have these two in common, but not all concentrate on them with the same fervor.

2nd: MA’s like Aikido, Jujitsu, almost all kinds of Kung Fu, Judo, and believe it or not, even Kendo has some aspects of this. Using the opponent’s energy is usefull when you can’t overpower or defeat your enemy though the normal means, because he is much strong/bigger/heavier then you. You enable your self to seem to have the strength of a giant, flipping, throwing, and tossing people many, many pounds heavier then you, you also can use this to be a “Rat in a lion’s den” so to speak by getting around his attacks, and use this opening to create a much bigger finale.

There are many, many more things to write about, and I don’t think I did this post justice but, I’ll continue to try boosting it up every now and then. And, sorry if you were looking for a little more detail on a specific MA, I can post all that I know on a specific subject to anwser your comment or e-mail.

Tips for Training #1

February 27, 2008

Hey everybody, it’s Beveld here with a tip for training.

Doing push-ups. Instead of going all out and seeing how many you can do before you drop, you should do five reps, rest for about 30-45 seconds, do 5 more then rest for a slightly longer amount and continue for about 15-20 minutes, depending on your endurance. Try to keep your rest time below one minute. Another thing you can do, if you find the ordinary is getting too easy, you might try elevating your feet (a chair is usually best). It works your abs and lats more and throwing in something new always makes the work out more interesting.

And remember, don’t overwork yourself. Over-working is worse than not working out at all.
