I studied American-Korean TKD.

Your set of questions are interesting in that they place importance in the style of the techniques taught. In the association I was in the greatest emphasis was placed on developing the mind, though the physical aspects were not neglected.

Situational awareness, self-control, mental clarity, confidence, tactical skills and focus were the most valuable things I learned. These skills should be common between and equally transferable between different styles.

I noted that entrants from different styles blended into our association well, as American-Korean TKD was a "non-traditional" style. For instance, the instructors were interested in, not dismissive of, the classical American wrestling techniques I employed in our groundfighting sessions.

As for the bowing and rigid protocols: I found this was very helpful in developing self control and respect for position.

Thank you for your illuminating response.

You are better off learning a few things and practicing them often.
I agree!

I just pray all I meet are untrained thugs! But yes, a good 3 punch combination from someone how knows how to punch well will do the trick. My TKD master I know does not like my boxing methods I use for punches instead of TDK punches, but while I feel legs are more powerful than arms there are just so many times in a true SD situation you can't throw those kicks and you really need some good hands. And I don’t mean fast flippy weak hits, I mean real hard punching done with good body weight behind the punches.

That is by far the funniest **** I have heard in some time. Kudos, Deaf. My wife makes 'Jack Bauer' saying t-shirts for me and some of the bearded ladies I run around with overseas to wear in the gym as a morale booster. That one is definately going to see print.

I know this post is off topic, but too funny to not recognize.

* What discipline are you a student under?

Muay Thai, currently. MT and Arnis soon.

* What is the level of training required to be fully recognized as an "instructor", a "master"?

I'm no where near instructor level. My instructor (Kru) has 20 years of study and just started training on his own 2 years ago. Previously, he was training with his Master.

* What is that level of training required to attain the higher tier/ranking? Is it number of years studying? Number of years studying + teaching? Or some combination of other things?

We do not use a belt system.

* What are the requirements for testing, and / or promotion for a higher rank?

I don't know exactly. Of the 4 Krus here in town, all were appointed so by the same Master, and all have 15+ years. So, I assume it was just a certain level of proficiency they had to prove to the Master. There are a few other MT instructors in town, but most are associated with the new crop of MMA type gyms and most/all are just generic kickboxing.

* How is your discipline set up to absorb someone else from another discipline, with or without rank?

All start with basic strikes. I think Muay Thai striking takes on very different technique than than other styles so, so new students from other arts get frustrated with relearning, say, a round house kick.

* Is your martial arts discipline recognized by some national or international council? If yes, what is that council?

Don't know. Don't care.

You all are making me want to get back into it!

The style of Martial Art you take I figure is kind of like what gun you carry. One MA/gun might work great for one person, while that same MA/gun might not work so well for another.

JW,

Just pick the art that fits you. I have found young tall slim men with long legs are perfect for Taekwondo due to TKD emphasizing so many kicks. Others may prefer Shotokan as it’s more a 50/50 hands and feet. And stocky guys may lean toward Jujutsu with it’s grappling.

Or if you want just plain self defense without kata or so much formality, then Krav Maga is a very good one and a fine addition to your skill set when carrying a gun.
