    Been a loong time since i've been on these forums.

    But i've gotten fat as shit. So it's time to change that.

    Between stress/work/relationships I've just gotten lazy and apathetic. Started lifting again a couple weeks ago when I finally got a place that i could do Oly lifting again.

    Old lifts:

    Snatch 185
    C&J 245
    Front Squat 285
    backsquat 365
    all at 170lbs body weight.

    Right now, i'm no where near that and am at 215lbs bodyweight. First goal is to drop back down to 170-180. Then start really bringin those lifts back up.

    Hopefully some of the old members are still around.

    questions/tips/advice/concerns are always welcome.

    attempted 1 hour of kuk sool... right before class someone attempted a Kani-Basami on me, and missed. Slammed his knee cap straight into the top of my foot. Can barely put pressure on it right now. so yea, fml.

    Ran through my newer forms and weapons forms. Then did a bunch of pushups and situps before leaving.

    Hey man,

    Just googled Kuk Sool. It sounds interesting. How does the average class look like?

    Good luck with the log and careful with the injuries and bad relationships :) My physique is doing so much better since I am single haha :D

    Well, including myself. There's a couple different instructors that'll teach any given class. And we all teach fairly differently so it's hard to say what an "average" class would look like haha.

    We rotate each week on what we're "supposed" to be teaching. (i.e. sparring 1 week, forms the next, techniques the next, etc..) But we only follow that as a guideline.

    Today for instance when I taught, we went over some point sparring kicking reaction/countering drills. As our students have a tournament coming up. Yesterday when another instructor taught, it was Throws the entire class.

    Fun fact about Kuk Sool:



    He (Goodridge) was approached by a Kuk Sool Won school before competing and was told he would be given a black belt if he agreed to represent the school, so even though he had only two classes under his belt, he represented Kuk Sool Won in the tournament.
    His debut fight provided one of the most violent KO's in the history of the sport. It was the one move he had been taught by the school.
