Mind and Skills 9

Milk-jugs can make good weights but when filled with water they don't last long so sand or small rocks, I believe would be a better choice.  Bicep-curls and vertical presses are two good exercises that you can do with them.  I don't know the name of the other exercise but you bring the back of your elbow straight up without moving your forearm.

When you start practicing techniques you don't want to start fast you want to go slow so you can find the easiest way to do them then go fast and repeat the move to get use to it.  Whatever moves, skills or exercises you learn make sure you videotape or write them down or even draw them like "Bruce Lee".

Some good rap music can help you get pumped up for training but, I found out that for me it will become a distraction during training so it's probably best to keep it quite.  Before you train you have to avoid drinking a lot of liquids because from experience it was hard for me to break a sweat.

Taekwondo Flaws

Taekwondo is only good for sport the style has too many tricks in it's kicks and their no where near being good for self-defense.  If you were to remove all of the unnecessary techniques their wouldn't be much left to use.  This style is one of two styles that are used in tournaments where the rules don't allow punches to the head...if they wear head gear then why not.

Some Random Stuff

When your out try to remember not to wear headphones that stop you from hearing anything else besides the music.  Make sure when your moving on your feet that you have your lower lead-leg in this position / and have your knees slightly bent.  When your in a bear-hug and you headbutt you want to jab with your head instead of hammering with it.
