Living in Canada, it's kinda hard to understand all this (I don't live downtown or in the "danger-zone" of Toronto)...

The thing is.... only 1 in 100 rapists are stupid enough to try to take on Chuck Norris.

I can reason with this, as I spent a year on the West Coast living in the rough side of Vancouver. A good place to stay away from at night, lol. A friend of mine got raped there, now she carries a blade with her

No where does it say on your site it was "misinterpreted". Seeing as how you were taught an "altered" version of it, can you even say you know what true tae kwon do is?

Judon't know if I got a gun...

no, no ,no, those were the guys that were teaching to korean misinterpretation of the japanese style. The new instructor is different. Except they stopped doing karate/tae kwon do completely after a year or two of the original japanese stuff, and now are doing MMA.

^^well then you still have yet to prove that tae kwon do is a misinterpretation of anything.

Ok, I finally found it. I was wrong on Tae Kwon Do being the misinterpretted one. Although I'm not sure if Tae Kwon Do is sometimes related to this at some schools...
Tang-Doo Do, that's the one that had it's true roots in Okinawan arts.

This was my intructor:
http://www.dysonimages.com/id6.html

He is an art guy, but he worked as a prison guard for some time... This guy was DAMN good. He might only(lol, only) be a 5th dan, but I bet he could beat a LOT of people in fights. Not only was he skilled, he was damn strong too.

But yeah, my mistake. I thought it was Tae Kwon Do... I'm not exactly sure if Tang-Soo Do was it. I think there might have been a different name. I can't remember...
We moved to MMA, which I liked even more.

I knew I was right I've never heard of that other one though, worth looking into.

Have you ever heard of Israeli Krav Maga? It's specialized in weapon defense. I've done a little bit of it and it's some powerful stuff. Designed and used by the Israeli army.
