I just passed my 5th Gup Tang Soo Do test, and am progressing very well considering my physical state. I am also beginning to start my second MA so that I can marry the two styles together to improve my self defense repertiore. I also just got my time in training from my old LEO self-defense and security, military, and personally directed MA and Self defense classes. I am now a certified instructor (and a 3rd Dan Black Belt) in my own right in general self defense, as well as a 4th Gup in TSD and by the end of the week, no less than 6th Gup in Hapkido.

[quote="MasterPain"]I fail to see how anyone expects to learn how to hit people without the benifit of having someone around to hit.

I say train wreck.[/quote]


I actually have a couple of friends to practice fall and lock techniques with, and have built a life-sized dummy with a heavy torso and moving joints to kick and punch, as well as to measure out. I know it is not the same as a 6 foot tall man charging full speed... but it helps for now. I also do plan on advanced instruction once I get my back fixed... (probably did not get to mention that before because I did not know if this was going to be a train-wreck or not...).

Thank you for your advice, it is part of the reason I improved my training methodology.
