comment Martial arts club politics
I left Taekwondo entirely because of politics. The year before I left, I took 5th place at the world championships and one of my students became world champion. Sometimes you can get pushed too far and the only option left is nuclear.

comment How to deal with an excessively aggressive student that is turning people off sparring classes?

comment Am I Being Used By My Dojo?
This reminds me of the early days of my club when I was making $20/month but had to pay $100/month to the governing body. I was NOT ammused either.

Qi is "life force". You can just as easily call it vitality.
