Is this one your blog too, or are they just borrowing your posts?

MARTIALDEVELOPMENT - Thanks for pointing this to my attention. No, it is not one of my sites, they are just "borrowing" my articles.

KarateStudent ("KS") on Traditional Karate Education vs. MARKS TRAINING.

KS is a Tang Soo Do practitioner. I was talking to a red-belt level young man the other day who had progessed very well in his traditional, in-class and belt promotion training.

The issue he voiced with me was that he was having trouble ramping up his competition skills, his sparring ability.

KS's observation is that the convention in many karate schools is to present the curriculum, then it's up to the student to 'figure it out' with trial and error.

Accordingly, some students seem to get stuck, repeating the in-class training exercises. MARKS has commented on his trial & error type experiences, certainly with his sparring.

MARKS TRAINING gives the student an outside the classroom resource to explore and better understand martial arts. KS thinks it imperative that students like mentioned above, not get in the rut of 'ritualistic' training.

Having talked to the red-belt student mentioned above, I believe he has great potential. When faced with a 'wall' of non-progress, the right thing to do is to dig deeper into the training. MARK TRAINING is a great way to do this.

It takes a lot of work and knowledge to put up a site like MARKS. Karate students should USE IT.
