It is with a heavy heart that I inform the IKSDA of the massing of GM James Ray. He apparently had a heart attack monday morning at work and passed before they could get him to the hospital. James and I have been friends and training partners for close to 40 years. He was one of the most giving and kind hearted person I've had the privilege of meeting and sharing the martial arts with...........He will be greatly missed

  Has north korea hurt your class sizes
Posted by: d_spencer - 09-25-2017, 04:01 PM - Forum: Korean Martial Arts - Replies (3)

Ive been seeing a drop in class sizes with the increase of tensions with north korea.  At first I was just seeing it as the normal rotations of people coming and going that every martial arts instructor knows very well.  But recently I had a student that told me he was not going to study with us anymore because we where Korean Karate.  After talking to him for a while I realized that he did not know their was a north and south Korea and he did not know what the Korean war was about.  This really made me surprised. My school is called Spencers Korean Karate, could it be their are people out their that might not know the difference in the two countries and as a result could it be hurting my attendance.  I would have though no way in the past but I ran into a olympic style tae kwon do friend when I was on vacation in Oklahoma who felt his class's where suffering due to people thinking they where north korean affiliated or something like that. I'm not asking for political answers to if you think what we are doing the wright or wrong thing with north korea but rather is this happening to you and if so what can we do to change this trend.

In light of the recent hurricanes and other natural disasters (flooding, fire etc) I wanted to offer a specific thread to Martial Warrior's sister forum, the Survival and Emergency Preparedness forum.  Pretty much any and everything 'prep' related.

  Hurricanes Harvey and Irma
Posted by: Kong Soo Do Karate - 09-17-2017, 12:39 PM - Forum: Tea Room - No Replies

Hope everyone is doing well after the last couple of storms we've had.  Irma passed about 30 miles to the east of my home.  I was activate before, during and after the storm with multiple 12+ hours shifts on top of my regular 12 hour shifts.  I'm just now getting back to a normal routine.

Sound off it you were in any of the affected areas.

  yellow belt test
Posted by: d_spencer - 06-30-2017, 04:12 PM - Forum: Japanese & Okinawan Martial Arts - Replies (7)

So I have some family members that do karate in mustang oklahoma, the name of the school is Tori Karate. I saw on a Facebook video their yellow belt test. Im curious as to how many schools out their have the same standards for yellow belt.  For their test they had to perform three Basic H style katas and then they where asked four questions. The first was what is the meaning of the tiger and #2 what is the meaning of the dragon, #3 who is the founder of karate in America, #3 what is the name of your karate style. they then where promoted from white belt to yellow belt.  Is this something any of you have seen before, my tests for yellow belt are much much different then this.
