Hello all.

Just wanted to drop a line to the community to say hello.  I'm the new mod, the torch being passed to me by allenb . 

I'm here to inquire, how is your art progressing?  Have there been any promotions, victories, either personal or  in a tournament?  How is the state of the art where you are currently?

I'll look forward to hearing from you all, and hope to make the community more active than it has been in the past.

Best wishes to each of you for the coming holidays,

Looking for a new moderator... [Jul. 11th, 2008|05:00 pm]

For a number of reasons, I am no longer to moderate this community. That said, I don't want it to disappear without warning the way the original Tang Soo Do community did. Therefore, I'm posting this in the hopes that someone will be willing to take over the community, quiet little town that it is.

Just comment or get back to me, and I'll get the "paperwork" done.

!! LJ Content Strike - MARCH 21 !!
this may be the only way to have your voice heard. or unheard as the case may be. (text ganked from suriyel676 cause she had the best worded one so far)

"For those of you who don't already know, there has been a strike scheduled for Friday, March 21st, 2008, during which we hope to have many members of LiveJournal provide LJ with absolutely no content for twenty-four hours. This means no posting and no commenting. If you post elsewhere and have it set up to be posted through a feed on LiveJournal, don't do it. Stay away from LiveJournal for twenty-four hours. That can't be too hard, can it? I know some of you are probably quite active on LiveJournal and will find it hard to stay away for an entire day, just as I will, but this is something that needs to be done, to show the people running LiveJournal that we're watching the changes they are making, that we're paying attention, that we're discontent, and that we want to be heard and taken in to consideration. We are not simply users who can be tossed to the side and ignored. We are the people who make up LiveJournal. Without us, without the content we create, without our words, our voices, our creativity, our participation, there would be no LiveJournal. This is a fact, and it needs to be realized and understood and then taken in to consideration when making decisions regarding the way that LiveJournal is run. The strike is only a few days away, so there isn't all too much time to prepare. While this is unfortunate, it isn't enough to keep this strike from taking place. It will take place, the second it is meant to, and it would be best to have as many people take part as possible. Please, spread the word. Spread it fast. There are only a few days to organize this. If you find that you care about LiveJournal or care about the people you interact with on LiveJournal or simply want it to remain a place where you can entertain yourself without constant censorship and money-hungry practices being thrown in without the consideration of those who use the service, act now. If you don't wish to spread the word, that is fine, but please: refrain from using LiveJournal on Friday, March 21st. Do something else for a change. It's for a good cause. (:

For background on this strike and why it is being held, please read the following posts:

To find out exactly when the strike begins and ends, depending on where you are located, please see this:

What's this about?

* It's about free and ad-free LiveJournal accounts being abolished for new members, ignoring the advice from the newly-formed Advisory Board.
* It's about LJ staff trying to sneak this decision in under the radar, and when people found out, telling the users it was done 'to make the signup process less confusing'.
* It's about LJ staff failing to apologize for trying to hide the facts from view and for lying about the actual reasons for their actions.
* And finally, it's about the latest decision to hide certain user interests from the list of Most Popular Interests, some of them being fanfiction, bisexuality, sex and depression. This decision was not announced or explained in any way. Users found out for themselves.

If you agree with this please re-post far and wide"

Added to this, are the words of SUP (the new owners of LJ) CEO : Антон Носик (Anton Nosik)
From this link
"In this situation, where they attempt to blackmail and to intimidate us, threatening to destroy our business, there is a business-reason not to reward this behavior. This is not the simple reaction of being more resistant the more pressure is applied. The fact is that through history no successful enterprise runs by being subjugated by unfriendly forces. No change, even the most correct one, will not experience some resistance.

It would probably be best to reconsider the recent changes. But from our point of view it is now necessary to wait until after the boycott has faded. Let it pass and have the voices of protest fade. Then we can consider changing this policy."

apparently the loyal livejournal userbase is now nothing more than a collection of "unfriendly forces"
in that case, i wonder if we can keep this content strike going for the entire week?

Warning: This is just painful to watch. But it makes the case very effectively for bone hardening.

How's everyone?

A TSD newbie. [Sep. 5th, 2007|11:31 am]
Tang Soo Do 2


After many, many years of wishing to join a MA academy, two months ago I finally found myself with the money and the time to do it.

Of course, I had to find an art and a school. Since I am not interested in participating in martial sports (I have nothing against them, I just do not see myself doing them), I wanted to find something more traditional.

After finding McDojo after McDojo (and McDojangs, too) I finally found this little but highly motivated Tang Soo Do academy. It was love at first sight.

So, I had my first class yesterday. It was very demanding, both in mental and physical ways, but also it was very fun and there was this... esprit de corps, if you wish, among the students: it lacked the rivalry or apathy I saw in other places.

I have received great advice at martial_artists, but I would like to know if any of you have specific advice for a begginer in TSD.

1st Gup! [Jun. 13th, 2007|01:13 pm]

[mood |excitedexcited]

Just wanted to tell you all  that I PASSED MY RED BELT GRADING! and now I am a 1st gup red belt tag :D

I opted for the traditional white tape on the left side of my belt, rather than the new dual coloured belts brought in by the World Tang Soo Do Association. It seemed pointless to me to have a dual coloured belt as my last tag. Do any of you have dual belts now?

I'm really excited about learning Naihanchi Cho Dan (sp?). :) I do love Bassai though. 

I'm also going to the W.T.S.D.A Europeans in Munich in July. Is anyone else? I really can't wait.

My club have annual awards evening, where they give out 3 trophies. My Uncle got the "outstanding effort" my friend got "most improved" and I was "student of the year!!!" 

I'm really pleased! :D
