    Before i have done Taekwondo i was very agressive and stuff, after i took Taekwondo and became a low yellow belter,i feel more connected. i legit recommend any form of martial art to anyone.

    The movies karate kid wasnt that bad but the reboot is sad japan have 3 percent black so starting usa karate kid as black trying to push black prgando is sad as that state and asian people dont really have black people so people using the black karate kid version is more better than origanal is kinda sad only becuase he is black.

    Ngl, there was some nonsense here. 'We train barefoot to be connected to the earth'. No. Originally, the royal guards of the Okinawan king (which is how karate started) were barefoot, or in light plimsols, so they could walk outside, feeling the earth, and thus knowing where to place their feet to avoid sharp stones, or snapping twigs.

    Jaden Smith learned kung fu, that whole reboot was a tragedy. Also, if
    You ever really wanna learn martial arts, TRULY: you take it with an ACTUAL JAPANESE OLD FASHIONED MASTER. One who was forged by their dedication to the art. Not some white guy wanting a check with his name on it. 😂
