Hello Hapkido Friends,
I just wanted to let you know that I've added a lot of new video
to the yellow belt section. I am
particularly proud of a little 'extra credit' clip we made of escapes from the
Goose Neck technique. To my
knowledge nothing like that exists on the web anyplace.
Also I've created a tutorial about how to use your
hands to get maximum leverage for wrist locks which utilizes some in depth x-ray
graphics of the hand. This has
been one of the more difficult lessons to convey through the website because it
relies largely on the 'feel' of things.
In having to teach this difficult concept in this medium I've really had
to explore it in ways that I never would have considered.
If anybody has suggestions on how Hapkido Online could serve us
better I am always open to new ideas.
Finally, I have not heard from some of you in awhile
and I would really appreciate it if you would check in.
It's important that I track your progress.
I am looking forward to seeing your video's.
If some of you have moved on and would like to stop receiving updates,
just let me know and I can remove you from the list.
I recently queried the martial arts supplier Tiger Claw
(www.tigerclaw.com) about sponsoring us. I have used their training equipment
for years. In fact I have a set
of kick targets that are twenty years old and we still use them three times a
week! I have dobak (uniform) from
them that are just as old and still serviceable. Tiger Claw is a Tennessee based company
and a worthy partner. Pray that
they decide to help out!
Well that is all for now.
I hope all of you are practicing and really enjoying
Very Respectfully and God Bless,
