Look at every strip mall in the USA and you got these Koreans peddeling their wares everywhere. But that's what makes this country so great. Right?! :-\

Funny how Tae Kwon Do is the first art thought of when asked about the easiest or simplest art.
(TKD for the most part is Shotokan,yet Shotokan is not mentioned as an easy art ?)

Take Your Dough,LOL.

I heard that the first time from Joe Lewis in the early 1990's when I attended his training and he asked me what I study?
I said Tae Kwon Do and Hapkido.
He said oh take My Dough,lol.

Funny it took me 3 years of semi private training (2-3 students) to get my Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do.

When I met Joe Lewis the first time we spoke about his training ,WHILE IN THE MARINE CORPS.
Joe said he trained in 3 different styles and was ranked a 4th degree in those arts (all three) in just under 18 months.
He trained 3-5 days per week depending on time he had off from the Marine Corps in 1-2 hour blocks.
(so it was not an 8 hours or more per day training)

I asked Joe,
How long would it take studying with you to make it to 4th Dan in your style/system ?(one style)
He said 6 hours per week for 10 years.
I said 10 years and you did 3 styles to 4th dan in less than 18 months,why the huge difference?
He said they trained harder in Okinawa.
I said can't you set the hardness of training ?
He said sure but not many would stay.
I said ,I thought you train your students Hard,as close to the way you trained ,this is what you told us in this training ?
He said he did.
I said I didn't understand an almost 10 to 1 time difference then ?
Then the topic changed to the Marine Corps.

Then we have Chuck Norris and his 8 months to Black Belt in Tang Soo Do,training 3 days a week while in the Air Force.

So it seems funny to me that everyone points to TKD as a McDojo,when it seems the time it takes to get a Black Belt in TKD is probably about right or longer than other arts taught in their original countries.

Funny thing :
I went to a  Jeet Kune Do school that opened near me a few years ago to check it out.
I watched 3 hours of classes.
(Stand up,Ground,then stick and knife ,one hour each)
I spoke to the Instructors and asked about time to Black Belt rank.
They said that the system has 27 belt ranks and it takes a minimum of 7 years to reach that level.
I said I thought that JKD was against rank structure as Bruce Lee did not want to be Classical ?
Not anymore was the reply with a laugh.

Funny Bruce Lee spent 3 years in Seattle and left there with people qualified to teach what he taught.
Dan Inosanto started training with Bruce in 1967 and Bruce was gone to Hong Kong in 1970 .
Now Dan's People have this Rank structure and time period to work from ??


It seems to me most martial studies would be done in a short time,if the Instructors taught as they were taught,Originally.
In the US everything is extended to make money for the Instructors.
If the arts were taught as originally intended Black Belts would be made within a year and then allowed to open their own schools.
(Oh no,no more money and competition too ??,LOL)

Just an observation.
