I am a black belt in Taekwondo and have attended a couple tournaments that consist of people in the area. Region 114 is the Iowa and Minnesota area.

Anyone here in Taekwondo? Past or present

Our family is involved in the World Tae Kwon Do Federation. My hubby is a 4th degree (master), oldest daughter is a 2nd degree, and other two daughters quit after attaining their 2nd degree junior black belt. I had to quit as a blue belt due to knee problems.

While the ATA and World TKD Fed. are different governing bodies, they are similar in many ways.

All in all, it's a great sport. A great way to work out frustrations and stress. grin

I trained threw out the eighties under 8th Dan Grand Master Joel Coles’s. He had moved around his dojo in Elk River for sevral years. He now has owned a place in Otsego where he still teaches.

I made it to brown belt red stripe before I moved on. I wished I would have kept in it. It was fun. I won some medals (bronze)in Twin Cities Tourney's, but to me it was gold back then grin. One I can remember was in Roseville.

My father was the one who got me started, but hurt him self in 84 or 85 and stopped going.

I still see Joel around town and thank him for all he taught me. Very nice guy!

That is fantastic!

I am planning on going back for my second degree here pretty quick but with the economy the way it is, money is tight right now.

Hmmmm, maybe I will be able to see some of you at tournaments!

    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
    • we have the 4.6 merc and found it bogged down until we popped new plugs in and it ran like a champ.  This boat sees well over 75-80% of its time trolling, but throttles down when we first go out each time.  Might be a different beast but in most motors hammering down once or twice each time you use it should be enough to keep things clean as long as your running non oxy gas.
