comment What are the signs *not* to train at a specific school?
@Trevoke No worries, mine was just an addendum, Sard's was more complete so I didn't feel the need to repeat. :D

I believe there are kits that have like a caulking compound and a vinyl latex that you can paint over the top of it. resilite.com/Departments/Wrestling-Mats-and-Supplies/… swainmats.com/store/store/comersus_listItems.asp?idCategory=31

comment Where can I find or how can I make a tailored white dogi for women?
Agreed. You almost need a serger to handle the thickness, especially on the reinforced/seams parts. I've even had trouble sewing a simple instructor ribbon on the collar of a traditional dobok.

comment Is the Olympic sport of Tae Kwon Do uniquely Tae Kwon Do like?
I agree, I was just outlining the possibilities. I would be very surprised if they had both karate and tkd. I could easily see tkd being replaced by karate, especially since tkd has been a borderline sport the past couple olympics anyway (Sportsmanship and other issues).

@RobinAshe - Oh, yah, thanks for the clarification. I missed that (The epee vs foil/saber).

comment Where can I go to order cheap grappling mat(s) for beginners?
If it's carpeted with a typical carpet pad, then you should be able to get away with some of the 1/2" puzzle mats such as nedlud suggested. I initially had the same reservations as Robin, throws and takedowns need a good instructor to be done safely.

x2 on this. ATA has a Spring and Fall Nationals each year, and Zebra provides the mats which you can purchase at a discount after it's over.

The Olympics have a limited number of sports, but multiple events within that sport. Like cycling, which has track, road, time trial and BMX disciplines, Athletics which is all track/field, etc. No more sport categories could be added, but they could change TKD to be Martial Arts and lump boxing, TKD and Judo under it, then be able to add other disciplines.

What is the surface like in your living room? Carpet with a pad, tile, wood?

@RobinAshe - I think vitamin K is more for helping prevent/heal bruising, but I could be convinced otherwise :D
