I have no time to study martial arts at the dojo, so I am planning to teach myself fighting. I was just wandering which style's dvds are easier to learn from.

Well, learning from a DVD isn't easy at all especially with no prior experience in what the DVD offers, imho.

Or without a good partner. I'd say if you have time to watch and learn from a DVD, then why not an hour for a class setting?

I think the dojo Ilike does not offer classes on the weekends, and I would like to know the difference between fight and ckm. My dad is an itf blackbelt, so I can ask him to be my training partner. I don't have time because of school work.

Don't learn from a DVD. You won't learn anything properly, and if you ever get time to actually train, you'll have to learn everything again. No one is going to take, "That's not the way it looked on the DVD" well.

Thank you for the advice. Maybe I should just learn itf taekwondo from my dad even though he forgot most of the moves and kata.

Well, if he has forgotten most of everything, it probably won't help much. If he feels confident that he has retained some of the information, then it would be a good thing.

Perhaps a better idea would be for your dad to look at some ITF forms and such on the internet, or in books, and see if he remembers it, and if so, that might be a more efficient way of training for you.

Depending on rank. Won't be much help if his dad only has a white or yellow belt. I suppose, some is better than none...I suppose.

He said his dad is an ITF black belt, but that helps about zero if he's forgotten everything.

Exactly. If he is pretty current on his stuff, and still has some decent technique, then I'd say it would be more doable.
