Talkin' smack.

Posted Tue Feb 28, 2006, 23:00 PM by Tracy

I’ve heard through the martial arts grapevine that some people from a Taekwondo school have been talking smack about Mo Duk Pai people. They are saying we aren’t used to being kicked in the head.

Jason says that we punish people who try to kick to the head (cover your groin boys!)

I say it’s because none of us old folks can kick that high.

  1. I’ll kick ‘em in the head… Problem is, they expect you to pull them. At this point in time, if I can get my leg up there, there’s no garantee that I won’t kick you pretty hard. If that’s what they want, that’s what I’ll give them.

About Mo Duk Pai

Mo Duk Pai kung fu is a modern American eclectic system of martial arts, combining hard- and soft-style techniques Mo Duk Pai, which translates to “Martial Ethical Way”, was founded by Professor Frederick D. King. For more information, to see photos or inquire about training, visit the Mo Duk Pai web site, which I also maintain. I have been training since 1996 and currently hold the rank of brown-black sash.


Sifu (pr. see-foo [Cantonese] or shur-foo [Mandarin]) is a Chinese term for Teacher. It also carries the connotation of Father (teacher-father), referring to a tradition of teaching martial arts within the family, as well as being a title of respect. In America the title sifu is given to both men and women. In Mo Duk Pai the title is awarded to 2nd degree black belts at their teacher’s discretion.


Qigong (pr. chee-gung) is the practice of Chinese exercises incorporating movement and posture, breathing and visualization. Qigong exercises focus on maintaining health by energizing and balancing one’s qi, or energy.
