I am an advanced brown belt in tae kwon do. (One step under black or 1st gup). I train 3 days a week. Hopefully soon my instructor will let me test for my blackbelt. This isn't really a question, but it's just to see if anyone has any thoughts on different types of martial arts...
A) rampage vs chuck 2 who will win? B) who would u rather get kicked my crow cop or punched by chuck?
I am a Tae Kwon Do student & instructor. It is a very good style. There are other good styles, all having strong & weak points. Good luck on your test.

Xing yi quan xue?
congrats! just remember to be patient, your instructor know the moment you are ready, even if you don't..
good job and keep up the good work! remember martial arts is a wonderful journey of body, mind and spirit!
Should I study Capoeira or Krav Maga?
Good for you! Once you have gained your black belt... try a more challenging art and see what other martial arts are out there. Be prepared to get punched! you need to learn to block the face!
Is it True that Mas Oyama defeated Thai Boxer "Black Cobra" Is there any evidence like photo of it?
not many lot of make believe ones.
keep training hard you'll get there.theres no harm in doing other styles once you get your bb.in fact it's a must,in my opinion.
What is the name of a belt that you put on your muscle to keep a muscle from exploding. Or becomeing injured?
Congratulations on your achievements! As for other martial arts, I might suggest an art that is more balanced, focusing on all aspects of fighting rather than just legwork. Possibly Krav Magaa or Shaolin gongfu. I did Shotokan before getting involved in Shaolin and as a woman, I find Shaolin better suited to my body type. Not to sound sexist, but women have a hard time building the muscle required for a tigerish art like Shotokan and Shaolin doesn't focus on physical strength the way Shotokan does.
Where can I find an iaido class,club or federation in Singapore?
Try kick boxing you will put youre tae kong do skills to a real test
What do you think about UFC 71 in LAS VEGAS?
i've been doing taekwondo different styles, ju-jujitsu and tried aikido and karate...what i can say is each style can teach a lot if you train hard, both physically and mentally...they are all similar in many ways but each of them has something different, apart from techniques, this is the approach, and philosophy - something that will close the gaps you get learning one style... i would definitely recommend trying at least several styles to some degree like, say,blue belt in taekwondo - it gives you flexibility and ability to choose which is best at this very moment in this very situation - qualities very important not only in fighting but in life..

Can a pistol be used in close combat?
Congratulations. Remember as you climb over the top of this mountain , you look across and see other mountains to climb , whether that is in TKD or another martial art.
Karate - ki?
good luck, hopefully he will do it soon, I'm also fairly close to a black belt testing so I can tell you that I know exactly how you feel.
TKD is a good base Martial Art to get your feet wet in, as are most Martial Arts. but the real trick is to continue your training, because getting the black belt is just a symbol of your dedicaton to the discipline, a true Martial Artist continues to evolve and improve, even if it means continuing in another discipline.
again Good Luck
Who won bull run on spike tv?
As you said, this isn't really a question :
but to answer what you halfway asked.
Yes, for 22 years now.
While I'm by no means a supporter or fan of TKD, I wish you nothing but the best on ranking for your Shodan (or whatever they call it in Korean). TKD seems to be what you're happy with, and that's good enough.
Also, yes...I have a number of thoughts, on a number of martial arts, if you ask a specific question I may be able to lend a few.
First, I want to wish you the best of luck on your upcoming test for the blackbelt in Tawkwondo. Once you have your blackbelt, start to look on other different style of martial arts like ground fighting. I would strongly recommended you Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu. It's involve a lots of ground, grabbling fighting, use techniques with very little power.
Give it a try, and it is going to take some time just like anything else before you get better. Good luck and let me know you do on your test. ok!
What's with all this "it's fake" crap?
It's fantastic to see another person with an open mind looking at other styles. Personally, I have looked at whatever art I was studying at the particular time and tried to pick a different art to strengthen any weak areas. With Aikido I changed to Tae Kwon Do. With TKD I also studied Hapkido.
In my opinion (I'll probably get backlash for this), one style isn't THE ONE. They all have weaknesses.
The main thing is to keep an open mind to ALL of the other martial arts out there. Good luck.
