    when i first went to the gym i'm at now they had a blue belt come down from Scranton and teach a seminar. the dude was sick, he did a "Ninja Roll" to my friend who's a Blue Belt also.

    i dropped TKD when i was a green belt, thought i might finish the rest of the process. a lot of it helped in my sparrings since i prefer throwing kicks than punches.

    yes i know the move. not to play the typical OTer role but its nothing mindblowing. its just the normal setup for the twister, except you take the back instead...

    I have a black belt and taught it for awhile. Stop wasting your money.

    I'm still here, working in Balt. There is a senior leaders meeting going on in Saudi the begining of march, I'm trying to stall until after that so I can go to my GF's formal with her. Its a big deal in her sorriety, only happens once every 4 years so you can only go once, and it landed on her senior year.

    We didn't think it would be possible but since everything got pushed back about half a year I may be able to weasel my way out of leaving next week and go with her March 1st.

    I make a tux look good. :wiggle:

    I did go to england for a few days, it was pretty awesome.

    I taught class at my college, when you don't have brown/black belts floating around a blue is better than nothing :dunno:

    The seminar part is weird, but I don't think there's anything wrong with learning from a blue when you're just a white. 3/6 beginner classes each week are taught by a blue, and I learn a lot from them.

    My instructor just got his blue...

    Granted, he's a blackbelt in judo and several other arts, but still...
