my base art is kenpo , this art has been destroyed by politics and people with a feeling of superiority .
really gets my back up .
we have so many different affilliations that there are more groups than students .
i don't know why they just cant see that we are all artists .
it's strange , i teach kickboxing ( no problems)
thai boxing (no problems)
mma(no problems)
kenpo (nightmare)
shotokan(nightmare)
wado ryu (nightmare)
the only organisations i have problems with are trad .
altho i have heard that tkd is a bloody nightmare.

cheers
matt

Politics happen. Usually because the higher grades want more........ more students, money, power etc.
When Phil Milner (yes Phil from South Yorkshire) died there was a power struggle at the top on the Grand Council of Sokes, there had to a 10th dan as head and the there was a fall-out amongst the 10th dans!
Imagine how pissed I was, Phil had taken me for my Sokeship but died before it was ratified.
I had to wait until it was sorted - 2 years and then it came throughbut the acrimoney that was around in those 2 years.
The evntual winner claimed to been graded here and seen on this course and no-one remembered him, it was shocking really.
How about the politics in the Sports Council and the money that the EKGB lost (somewhere around 100,00) and no-one could find it?
Do you know why we'll never be unified as a group?
The Chinese hate the Japanese, the Koreans keep thier power base and hate the Japanese, yet the Japanese are the ones with recognition and power, everybody hates freestyle and all jujitsu styles hate each other
So don't tell me about politics, wait 'til your grades mount up and then let's see whose arse you'll lick, I've waited my 8 years and I'm ready for my 8th dan - anybody bending yet?
