• Dr. Laura on the Value of Martial Arts Training

    Dr. Laura Schlessinger, known to her millions of fans as simply “Dr. Laura,” is a radio and Internet problem-solver who doles out practical, no-holds-barred advice for extinguishing life’s emergencies. In between her probing questions and cut-to-the-chase admonishments are almost daily recommendations to sign up for martial arts lessons. In this exclusive interview, the Southern California-based author and black belt recalls her experiences in the arts and her reasons for recommending them to her legions of listeners. Why did you decide to take up the martial arts? Dr. Laura: Most little girls love ballet dancers in froufrou costumes. I loved the beauty of Bruce Lee’s moves — guess it’s the tomboy in me. However, this was not the thing for little girls to do “in the day,” so I never had training as a child. When my son was 3-1/2 years old, I decided to start him in the martial arts. I took the leap and signed myself up at 41. Which arts did you study? Dr. Laura: Hapkido and taekwondo. I have not trained for eight years; I switched over to weightlifting and power walking because I didn’t think that the pounding and kicking was doing my body any good after my 50th birthday party. What’s your rank? Dr. Laura: I earned a black belt. When I asked my teacher about second degree, he explained something about me running across the studio, running up the wall and then turning in the air to kick a bag. I thought about that and decided black was black. Now available! Self-Defense Moves for Women: How to Fight Someone Bigger Than You by Exploiting Vital Targets, by Meredith Gold.

  • Ancient Korean Swords and Sword Arts (Part 2)

    Debate continues in the South Korean martial arts community regarding the exact swordsmanship skills Adm. Yi Sun-shin and his men used to fight off the Japanese in the late 16th century. Practitioners of kumdo (the Korean pronunciation of the characters used to write kendo) insist their art is the direct descendant of the one Adm. Yi Sun-shin used in battle. Photo showing the tangs of Adm. Yi Sun-shin’s oversize swords Yet Korean kumdo is undeniably similar, some might argue identical, to Japanese kendo. Many kumdo instructors, including Lee Jeong-hee in Pusan, readily acknowledge that their art is a recent import from Japan taught with few or no modifications. They tell how both Korean and Japanese swordsmen train and compete under the same set of rules, then proudly announce that Korean practitioners give their Japanese counterparts a run for their money in tournaments. The similarities of the two arts’ footwork, hand movements, protective gear, real and practice weapons, and sparring rules lend credence to claims that kumdo came from kendo and not from an ancient Korean art. South Korean kumdo practitioner Stolen Skills? Purists in South Korea counter with what seems a far-fetched theory: Japan honed kendo into a fine art using as raw material “stolen” kumdo skills from Korea. While the explanation parallels that of Korean and Japanese sword development, it may be a byproduct of Korean nationalism. At least one part of kumdo, however, differs significantly from kendo. It is the bon guk kum bup, or roughly “indigenous sword form.” The unique routine consists of a series of movements that cannot be found in Japanese kendo. For this reason, many Koreans still believe the entire art of kumdo comes from the ancient sword ways of their ancestors and has nothing to do with Japan. Detractors, however, insist the bon guk kum bup form is merely a modern recreation

  • Ancient Korean Swords and Sword Arts (Part 1)

    In South Korea’s museums, the oldest swords, called jik do, have straight double-edged blades. Most scholars believe that the ancient sword-making skills that produced them came to Korea from China — as did much of the nation’s culture and technology. They speculate that Korean technicians then refined the imported metalworking techniques over the centuries. Unfortunately for researchers, the lineage of Korean sword-fighting skills is not quite so easy to determine. The Hardware If you were to return to those museums and search the more recent displays for sword exhibits, you would find mostly Japanese weapons from the colonial period (1910-1945). Many of them were probably taken from dead or captured Japanese troops. If you then skipped ahead to modern times, you would find two distinct varieties of swords: the kum (from the Chinese word jien) and the do (from the Chinese word dao). The kum (also spelled geom or gum) is a light, double-edged weapon with a grip that usually accommodates one hand. It is intended mostly for thrusting techniques. The do is a heavier weapon with a handle that is large enough for both hands. The blade is sharp on one edge only and intended mainly for slashing techniques. (Interestingly, the aforementioned jik do is more like a kum than a do.) In South Korea, the explanation for the development of the two types of weapons goes something like this: In the distant past, Chinese sword makers concentrated on the jien. Not surprisingly, their sword skills focused on one-hand techniques, with a shield often held in the other hand. After these techniques and skills filtered into Korea, local craftsmen developed more advanced manufacturing processes, and word of this high quality helped spread the reputation of Korean blades throughout Asia.

  • The Twenty Guiding Principles of Karate

    In 1917 Gichin Funakoshi, an elementary school teacher and Okinawan-te master, traveled to mainland Japan in a preliminary effort to introduce his fighting art to government officials and members of the Butoku Kai martial arts ministry. Five years later he returned to begin a tour of demonstrations held at universities. He reasoned, correctly, that learned men tended to be physically unfit. His main pitch was that a regimen of karate training could produce health benefits in addition to skills in self-defense. His student base grew quickly and by the 1930s the "empty-hand way" (as it was now called) had a larger following in Japan than on Okinawa.*Funakoshi made fundamental changes to karate in Japan that included adopting the belt-ranking system from judo and its introduction as a do form, or life art. Thus karate-do was born. More than just a method of fighting, karate skills could be actualized in many aspects of everyday living as exemplified in the following list of aphorisms that was first published in 1938: 1. Karate-do begins with courtesy and ends with rei (respect).2. There is no first strike in karate.3. Karate is an aid to justice.4. First know yourself before attempting to know others.5. Spirit first, technique second.6. Always be ready to release your mind (or heart).7. Accidents arise from negligence.8. Do not think that karate training is only in the dojo.9. It will take your entire life to learn karate, there is no limit.10. Put your everyday living into karate and you will find myo (subtle secrets).11. Karate is like boiling water, if you do not heat it constantly, it will cool.12. Do not think that you have to win, think rather that you do not have to lose.13. Victory depends on your ability to distinguish vulnerable points from invulnerable ones.14. The out come

  • Martial Arts For The Blind

    Devin Fernandez, right, demonstrates self-defense with a student.A martial arts program has been established on Long Island geared specifically for the blind. In 1987 Devin Fernandez was injured in a work-related accident that eventually left him without 90 percent of his eyesight. Undeterred by his fate, he now heads the martial arts program for Third Eye Insight:The first of its kind on Long Island, Third Eye Insight™ (TEI) provides free physical fitness classes for individuals who are blind or visually impaired. Classes include instruction in the practice of Martial Arts/Self Defense, Yoga and Meditation. By promoting physical activity and sports through health and fitness classes, TEI provides its students with the motivation, self-confidence, and self-esteem to achieve their goals and to meet life’s challenges head on.Devin, who holds black-belt rank in Japanese jiu-jitsu and Ninpo, acknowledges there is little a blind person could do about a punch they can't see coming, but said if an attacker were to grab them, their training could make all the difference. For a person who is visually impaired, taking a standup style that incorporates joint-locks and grappling at close range makes good sense.The long term goal for Third Eye Insight is to franchise the model that exists on Long Island and create facilities across the country. In addition to martial arts, TEI would like to offer weight training classes and access to a pool and track for the blind and visually challenged.

  • Pressure Points Video From the April/May 2015 Black Belt Cover Story on Kuk Sool Won

    The Korean martial art of kuk sool won is renowned for its comprehensive collection of combat techniques. In particular, it teaches an extensive set of offensive and defensive moves designed to take advantage of the human body’s many pressure points. For that reason, when we were conceptualizing the April/May 2015 issue, we looked to kuk sool won. Specifically, we asked R. Barry Harmon — who’s a ninth-degree black belt in the style, a licensed acupuncturist and one of kuk sool’s most prolific writers — to pen the cover story. We were fortunate that In Hyuk Suh — the man who assembled the art in 1958, founded the Korean Kuk Sool Association in 1961 and moved to the United States to spread his system in 1974 — was available to travel from his headquarters in Texas to Southern California for the shoot. Because we live in the age of Internet video, our staff recorded all the action involving In Hyuk Suh and R. Barry Harmon at 30 frames per second. Below is a video synopsis of the day. The April/May 2015 issue of Black Belt went on sale March 31. It will remain in bookstores and on newsstands until May 25 — or until it’s sold out. Get your copy today. Better yet, click here to subscribe. (Cover photo by Peter Lueders) Many more martial arts videos are available on Black Belt’s YouTube channel. Visit it today to subscribe — or just to watch.
