TDA Blitz - April 15 2007

Martial Development has a nice little post called Black Belt Envy - "Let me tell you a dirty little secret about black belts.  They have no particular meaning at all." We've posted before on this subject, but it's got a slightly different take. Read it.

I know this is old, but this CNN story by Ashley Fantz
, "Teen 'sport killings' of homeless on the rise" really strikes a cord on how kids are being raised without value for the lives of others. points us to an online exercise and fitness journal, something we could probably all use, and even better, links to the 300 Workout, so that we can look like the guys in the graphic novel, I mean film. Check them both out!

Patrick at Moruken Dojo blog gives his thoughts on Positional vs. submission wrestling - "...
which is better for a fight - positional or submission wrestling techniques. You might be surprised by my opinion."

The Dojo Rat crawls through the theory that Aikido was "...
influenced by the circular Chinese arts such as Bagua or elements within the Tai Chi Chuan forms." Read both Is Aikido Of Chinese Origin?, and More On Aikido And Chinese Internal Arts for some possible answers. He's also got some new feature called "Cute Hippie Chick Of The Month," but I wouldn't know what that was. [*Wife could be reading this post!]

Hock Hochheim is having his, "
Big 5 Seminar" in June.
Tackett on JKD.
Hock on hand, stick, knife and gun theme-connected tactics,
McCann on street survival, reality ground fighting.
Halleck on Panantukan Silat and Filipino Martial Arts.
Hughes on Military Combatives

More here.


Boot to the Head had me laughing out loud with this post, "Bruce Lee Better than Da Vinci, Newton and Julius Caesar." And many more too!

Too many good things to read out there. I haven't even had time to read all of our own posts at TDA Training, so check them out and let me know what you think!
