To be fair though it isn't the martial art doing it, it's just the club that K@l@sh happens to go to.

I've always been interested in TKD but there's not many clubs around here that are easy for me to get to and i'm about to go to uni so there's no point in starting yet. My kickboxing is fine for me atm.

but the club, or assiciation sanctions the licences. im guessing its the TAGB (they usually are) and their saying their willing to forget a 3 year lapse intraining.

if it were my dojo, we'd have to reacess the students level, before allowing them to take on a belt. a black belt might be reduced to a white belt if their techinque was only at a white belt level.

martial arts have to be maintained... its a case of use it or loose it.

aye, very much so. Its not the effort put in, but the result of the effort and time that matters. Perfect practice makes perfect, as someone wiser and older than me said.

Older...hrm wasnt you was it wtf? (H)

same here, but hey. it's just the tul i and sambo matsoki i forgot. most of the moves i can still do. personally i was expecting them to make me re-start

although i also cannot say that it is the best...its just the best i have done, and only having done Tkd....
