Sifu Freddie Lee's video on students being enemies.

I realize you can not control the martial arts school you choose, you have to do what the martial arts instructor tells, you are the one who chooses the school, if you don't like it then leave, you are free to do that,if you want to train how to punch people on the face while they are on the ground, why on earth would you go to a Taekwondo school, I see people who want to learn how to choke, how to break arms, and how to fight in MMA, yet they go to a Kung fu or Taekwondo, Karate school, and say that it sucks.
I f I had told my Taekwondo instructor if we could train BJJ, he would've kicked me in the face because he didn't like MMA.

If you want to learn how to handle different types of weapons you cannot go to a boxing school and then criticize it for not teaching weapons

If you want to learn how to do all kinds of punching, kicking, knees and elbows combinations and the muay thai clinch, you cannot go to a WTF TKD school and then criticize it because it doesn't teach you Muay Thai boxing, if you wanted to learn all the striking, grappling, self defense techniques of Taekwondo then you'll have to find a really good school, instead of going to the first one you find.

Bjj is not in the Taekwondo curriculum, stick fighting is not in the Taekwondo curriculum, the instructor migh've teach me a bit of Judo, because it's his school and he can do whatever he wants, I'm the one paying to attend his school. That's why you have to choose your school wisely, find out why you are training, are you training for self defense, for fitness. to compete, for health, to have a balance between body mind and spirit, to beat down people and get into bar fights, to train in weapons; and then choose the school accordingly to what you want.


  1. That's the problem with creating a business Martial Arts school. Your business Martial Arts school is confined to the restrictions of which is allowed to be operated by law. You can have a business Martial Arts school that teachers "everything" you need to survive in combat but say you wish to add in Acupuncture, Physical Therapy, and Massage therapy. You are not allowed to share this with the masses unless you have the proper licensing. But if you teach your own family, there are no restrictions such restrictions. It's like learning from your father the ways of the street, that can never be taught to you in school. So within every business Martial Art school, there is probably a family of which you may or may not know about, and to get into that family, it may be impossible or highly unlikely as a consumer.
