SiCKO - The American Truth

December 15, 2008

Filem dokumentari oleh penerbit kontroversi yang dilabel sebagai sosialis oleh kerajaan Amerika Syarikat. Dia ni banyak buat filem yang membuka mata orang ramai khususnya rakyat USA.

Kandungan filem ini membuat kita rakyat Malaysia setidak-tidaknya bersyukur dengan nikmat kemudahan dan bantuan perubatan yang sedia ada di negara kita. Tidak salah untuk kita memperelokkan apa yang ada tetapi adalah tidak adil jika kita menganggap negara maju seperti USA lebih memperjuangkan kebajikan rakyat sendiri.

Writer/producer Michael Moore interviews Americans who have been denied treatment by our health care insurance companies -- companies who sacrifice essential health services in order to maximize profits. The consequences for the individual subscribers range from bankruptcy to the unnecessary deaths of loved ones.

Moore then looks at universal free health care systems in Canada, France, Britain, and Cuba, debunking all the fears (lower quality of care, poorer compensation for doctors, big-government bureaucracy) that have been used to dissuade Americans from establishing such a system here. The roots of those health care systems are explored, and our failure to establish free health here care is traced to a) President Richard Nixon's deceptive support of the then-emerging HMOs pursuing huge profits and b) subsequent pressures for Congress to sacrifice sound health care in favor of corporate profit.

A group of Americans who became ill from volunteering at 911 Ground Zero, but were refused health coverage for their illnesses, are ferried by Moore to Cuba, where they receive the top-rate, free care one would hope they'd get here at home.

In his interviews, historical reportage, and typical sarcastic wit, Moore soundly condemns American health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies, as well as the politicians who have been paid millions to do their bidding. He makes the case that there is something wrong with Americans that we cannot learn from the successes of other countries in providing better quality-of-health than we enjoy in the USA.

1) "Yang paling best diorang ni siap pergi ke Guantamo Bay untuk minta rawatan sebab tahanan di sana memang diberi rawatan rapi. Kerajaan US nak tunjuk kepada dunia yang tahanan dijaga dengan baik, tidak ada yang sakit."

2) Kerajaan US dan medianya memang suka condemn negara lain terutama negara jirannya Kanada, tapi realitinya rakyat US sendiri sanggup dan terpaksa berpura-pura mempunyai pasangan rakyat Kanada untuk membolehkan mereka mendapat rawatan secara percuma.

3) Cuba mempunyai kepakaran dalam perubatan dan antara pengeluar ubat penting dunia. Rakyatnya menikmati kemudahan perubatan percuma dan bekalan ubat yang jauh lebih murah dari USA. Satu inhaler yang berharga USD235 hanya berharga USD0.05 di farmasi Cuba.

4) Michael Moore mendedahkan satu realiti yang boleh berlaku di negara kita sendiri. Harap-harap negara kita tidak menjadikan USA sebagai model dalam kebajikan rakyat.

5) General Healthcare perlu dijadikan keutamaan dalam sesebuah kerajaan.

6) Jangan cepat percaya propaganda kerajaan.

EVER READY - A KURO-OBI ATTITUDE

KEJOHANAN SENI MEMPERTAHANKAN DIRI KEBANGSAAN 2008
Di Pulau Pinang Anjuran Kementerian Belia Dan Sukan
- Acara Taekwon-Do MGTF

From Karnival 2008 (Penang)

TAHNIAH kepada adik-adik yang berjaya membawa pulang pingat dan yang kandas juga saya ucapkan terima kasih kerana setidak-tidaknya anda berusaha dan tunjuk kesungguhan.

Kami memahami persediaan mewujudkan pasukan yang mantap sebagaimana sebelum ini tidak tercapai sepenuhnya kerana kesuntukan masa latihan dan panggilan/pengesahan jemputan dari penganjur yang agak lewat daripada biasa. Tambahan pula ramai fighters sedang menumpukan pada peperiksaan baik dari ahli yang bersekolah menengah (SPM & STPM) mahu pun dari IPT seperti PSMZA terutamanya.

Bagaimana pun keadaan ini harus menjadi iktibar dan pengajaran kepada peserta yang mengikuti sesi pemilihan di Pusat Latihan Kuala Terengganu. Mesej yang ingin saya sampaikan kepada ahli taekwon-do negeri ini terutama yang sudah bertalipinggang hitam ialah
anda seharusnya sentiasa bersedia dari segi fizikal, keupayaan teknikal dan mental.

Saya lihat pencapaian emas Mohamad Abu Dzar adalah wajar kerana dia bersedia. Wajahnya tampak keyakinan. Mungkin hasil dari pengalaman mengikuti kejohanan-kejohanan dalam negeri dan juga Sukma Karate. Dia juga pernah dinobatkan Peserta Terbaik ISTAC (Inter-Schools Taekwon-Do Annual Championship) sebelum ini.

Dari segi teknikal sudah tentu semua yang mewakili kontinjen ini masih belum dapat menandingi pasukan senior Terengganu. Semasa sesi pemilihan akhir di Kuala Terengganu saya dapati persembahan Abu Dzar memberangsangkan dan mampu diketengahkan. Justeru tidak hairanlah Abu Dzar membawa pulang kilauan emas untuk dirinya dan kontinjen ini. Dia bersedia dari segi fizikal. walaupun lawannya hebat dari segi teknikal. Semangat untuk berjuang memang wujud dalam dirinya. SYABAS!

Kebanyakan fighters Terengganu menyambung pelajaran di IPT di negeri-negeri lain. Yang ada dalam negeri sendiri buat masa ini masih tidak dapat menyaingi jaguh-jaguh Terengganu yang merantau. Untuk kejohanan sebegini, Persatuan menyenarai pendek nama-nama pemenang dan yang berpotensi dari ISTAC. Malangnya kebanyakan daripada mereka sedang menduduki peperiksaan dan ada juga yang gagal menghadirkan diri semasa sesi pemilihan diadakan.

Bezanya ialah pada sikap. Atas sebab yang sama Persatuan menuntut mereka pulang sekejap dan "mengabdikan" diri untuk pasukan Terengganu - bagi mereka yang mengenang budi maka mudahlah Persatuan membentuk pasukan - bagi yang sebaliknya mungkin mereka kurang faham dengan keadaan negeri sendiri atau ingin mencari pengalaman baru atau ada faktor lain yang membuatkan mereka enggan berkorban. Kadang-kadang apa yang Tok Guru hanya harapkan adalah berhubung dengannya, sekurang-kurang dimaklumkan sebab-sebab tidak dapat mewakili negeri sendiri. Hal ini akan sentiasa berterusan jika tidak ada yang memberi kefahaman dan kesedaran.

Pujian harus diberikan kepada saudara Nasirewan yang mengurus kebajikan peserta sepanjang kejohanan tersebut dan saudara Aizuddin sebagai pembantu beliau. Tidak ketinggalan juga kepada En.Rahman dari PSMZA yang berusaha dengan kudrat 4-wheel drivenya membawa ahli dari PSMZA untuk diuji. Hasilnya seorang daripada mereka layak mendapat tempat dan berjaya ke peringkat akhir dengan pingat perak.

Sikap "tunggu jurulatih panggil training" tidak boleh diamalkan. Sudah terbukti semasa sesi pemilihan, yang kurang rajin berlatih akan diketepikan berbanding mereka yang sanggup mencuri masa dan berlatih sendiri.

Apa pun atmosfera dan disiplin ahli kontinjen adalah baik dan kelihatan gembira. - Syabas! Anda masih mampu mencapai yang terbaik jika anda lebih bersedia. Masih ada banyak ruang untuk diperbaiki. Rajinlah berfikir dan berusaha. Wujudkan latihan wajib untuk diri anda.

ISLAM & YOGA & TAEKWON-DO

November 23, 2008

Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan hari ini mengharamkan Yoga kerana mempunyai elemen yang bertentangan dengan Islam dan Tawhid. Matlamat mengamalkan Yoga pada asasnya adalah untuk menjaga kesihatan, kecantikan badan dan mengurangkan tekanan. Semuanya bermula dengan latihan fizikal dan apabila tiba peringkat seterusnya barulah elemen-elemen spiritual diserap masuk. Trend amalan Yoga merebak dengan cepatnya dan begitu banyak pusat latihan Yoga diwujudkan di bandar-bandar utama dalam negara.


YOGA DALAM TAEKWON-DO?
Di dalam sesi Taekwon-Do ada sesi Meditasi seumpama Yoga biasanya dilakukan selepas latihan. Apabila kita menjana latihan berat dan banyak berpeluh, Meditasi banyak membantu menjana semula tenaga dan semangat secara dalaman. Saya diajar oleh Master Najmi amalan ini dibuat dengan cara mengingati perkara-perkara indah dan sebaiknya mengingati apa yang Allah kurniakan segala nikmat dan kemudahan kepada kita, sambil menjaga pernafasan. Ianya berkesan dan selepas latihan kita berasa kurang letih dan lebih fokus.


Justeru ianya bukanlah Yoga dan tidak pernah mengadaptasi Yoga. Sit, Breath and Relax. Konsep meditasi berakar umbi bukan sahaja dari amalan Oriental tetapi dalam setiap peradaban dan agama yang bertujuan memberi ketenangan jiwa.

Pada awalnya saya anggap meditasi is nonsense, mengarut, dan dibuat saja-saja - semasa saya bersekolah dahulu di awal pembelajaran seni Taekwon-Do. Tetapi dalam suatu masa guru saya menasihat anaknya (salah seorang ahli seni Taekwon-Do terbaik dalam negara ini yang berjaya mewakili negara dalam cabang GTF, WTF dan juga Karate-Do) - mengamalkan Meditasi ringkas sebelum latihan, selepas latihan dan sebelum perlawanan!. Mana mungkin seorang bapa memberi tip yang semberono kepada anaknya di saat-saat penting seperti pertandingan.

Itulah uniknya Taekwon-Do Tradisional yang saya perjuangkan kini.

SOLAT
Begitu pun dalam Islam sendiri wujud amalan gerakan tubuh badan seharian yang mampu menandingi Yoga dan sebagaimana Yoga, ianya spiritual. Amalan SEMBAHYANG atau SOLAT sebenarnya adalah satu amalan harian yang sihat dan begitu penting sehingga Allah S.W.T meletakkannya sebagai perkara WAJIB dilaksanakan oleh hambaNya.

Amalan SOLAT adalah untuk merealisasikan matlamatnya iaitu bagi mendekatkan diri dengan Allah sebagai hambaNya dan untuk keperluan fizikal, ianya hendaklah dilakukan dengan tertib dan penuh kesabaran lengkap dengan apa yang dikatakan 'toma'-ninah'.

Solat "sukar" dilakukan jika diri tidak membiasakannya. Sama seperti amalan lain. Jika sudah biasa dengan Solat Ekspres (sembahyang laju), maka berterusannya Solat dengan tertib perlahan akan dianggap susah.

Elemen Yoga seperti Meditation / Bertafakur juga digalakkan dalam Islam. Apabila kita berada di dalam Masjid dan duduk dengan keadaan diam sambil mengingati Allah di dalam hati, itu dipanggi Iktikaf.

Apa pun Solat dari segenap individu Muslim hendaklah dijaga sebagai "Tiang Agama" - tiang individu itu sendiri. Berikut adalah satu artikel yang ditulis pada tahun 2001 dan nasib baik masih ada dalam online, saya sebenarnya sudah mengikuti artikel ini beberapa tahun sebelum ini. Apa yang baik kita ambil iktibar dan yang mungkin kurang tepat kita ketepikan:-




The “Yoga” of Islamic Prayer
By Karima Burns, MH, ND
11/01/2001
Called “one of the oldest systems of personal development encompassing body, mind and spirit” by the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, yoga has become one of the fastest growing health trends today. It has been renowned for centuries for its curative powers of movement.

Yoga consists of a number of “asnas,” or body positions, which one retains for a desired length of time while either reciting “mantras” or breathing in a rhythmic manner. Its benefits have been researched by many doctors who now recommend it to their patients, by many medical schools such as Harvard, and by many foundations such as the Menninger Foundation.

In fact, yoga has become so popular that secretaries have developed a simplified sitting version that they can do at their desks. The elderly, pregnant women and athletes also have their own versions.

Interestingly, for the millions of people enrolled in yoga classes, the Islamic form of prayer has provided Muslims for fourteen centuries with some of yoga’s same (and even superior) benefits. This simple form of “yoga” offers physical, mental, and spiritual benefits five times a day as Muslims assume certain positions while reciting Qur’an and athkar (remembrances).

Of course, not all the yoga positions are found in the Islamic prayer. However, hospital researchers have concluded that patients benefit from even a simplified version of yoga, and most hospital yoga programs, such as those at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Center in Massachusetts, consist of only five to seven positions.

The Muslim prayer has five positions, and they all (as well as the recitations we make while performing the prayer) have a corresponding relationship with our spiritual and mental well being, according to modern scientific research. The benefits of performing specific movements and recitations each day come from the correct rendition of the position or action itself, the length of time the position is held, and from careful and correct recitation techniques.
Each of the five prayer positions has a corresponding yoga position, and the positions together “activate” all seven “chakras” (energy fields) in the body. The idea of activating a chakra may sound linguistically strange, but it is easier to understand once one translates that word into more familiar language.
Eastern healers believe that each of the chakras correlate to major nerve ganglia that branch forth from the spinal column. Thus, the concept of activating these nerve centers is akin to getting a chiropractic adjustment or installing a medical stimulating device on the spine to correct corresponding bodily malfunctions.
In layman’s terms, the idea of chakras can be understood by thinking about how the sense of “feeling” functions. One notices, when touching any part of the body, that that part responds by being more “awake” and aware. Another part of the body that was not touched, but is along the same nerve pathway, may also respond.
When a person is sitting, for instance, they may not be thinking about their legs, which are momentarily at rest; however, if someone touches them, they will again be “aware” of them. Chakras work in much the same way.
Studies have found that varying areas of the body, when activated by touch, movement or thought, evoke specific emotional and physical responses in much the same way that a smile can evoke the feeling of happiness, and actually increase circulation – even if one was feeling sluggish and unhappy before smiling. This is one of the reasons that it is so important to perfectly perform all of the movements of the Islamic prayer, rather than haphazardly rushing through them.
The Takbir and Al Qiyyam together are very similar to the Mountain Pose in yoga, which has been found to improve posture, balance, and self-awareness. This position also normalizes blood pressure and breathing, thus providing many benefits to asthma and heart patients.
The placement of the hands on the chest during the Qiyyam position are said to activate the solar plexus “chakra,” or nerve pathway, which directs our awareness of self in the world and controls the health of the muscular system, skin, intestines, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and eyes. When the hands are held open for du’a, they activate the heart “chakra,” said to be the center of the feelings of love, harmony, and peace, and to control love and compassion. It also governs the health of the heart, lungs, thymus, immune system, and circulatory system.
Muslim researchers have shown that when Muslims recite the Qur’an, old thoughts, feelings, fears and guilt are released or healed, and blood pressure and stress levels are reduced. Virtually all of the sounds of the Arabic language are uttered while reciting Qur’an, creating a balance in all affected areas of the body.
Some specific sounds, in fact, correspond to major organs in the body. In his research and creation of eurhythmy, Rudolph Steiner (founder of the Waldorf Schools), , found that vibrations made when pronouncing the long vowels, 'A', 'E' and 'U,' stimulated the heart, lungs, and the thyroid, pineal, pituitary, and adrenal glands during laboratory tests.
The position of Ruku is very similar to the Forward Bend Position in yoga. Ruku stretches the muscles of the lower back, thighs, legs and calves, and allows blood to be pumped down into the upper torso. It tones the muscles of the stomach, abdomen, and kidneys. Forming a right angle allows the stomach muscles to develop, and prevents flabbiness in the mid-section.

This position also promotes a greater flow of blood into the upper regions of body – particularly to the head, eyes, ears, nose, brain, and lungs – allowing mental toxins to be released. Over time, this improves brain function and ones personality, and is an excellent stance to maintain the proper position of the fetus in pregnant women.
The Sujud is said to activate the “crown chakra,” which is related to a person’s spiritual connection with the universe around them and their enthusiasm for spiritual pursuits. This nerve pathway is also correlated to the health of the brain, nervous system, and pineal gland. Its healthy function balances ones interior and exterior energies.
In Sujud, we also bend; thus activating the “base chakra,” which controls basic human survival instincts and provides essential grounding. This helps to develop levelheaded and positive thinking along with a highly motivated view of life, and maintains the health of the lymph and skeletal systems, the prostate, bladder, and the adrenal glands. We also bend the “sacral chakra” during Sujud, thus benefiting and toning the reproductive organs.
The position of Al Qaadah, (or Julus) is similar to the Thunderbolt Pose in yoga, which firms the toes, knees, thighs, and legs. It is said to be good for those prone to excessive sleep, and those who like to keep long hours. Furthermore, this position assists in speedy digestion, aids the detoxification of the liver, and stimulates peristaltic action in the large intestine.
Last, but not least, the “throat chakra” is activated by turning the head towards first the right and then the left shoulder in the closing of the prayer. This nerve path is linked to the throat, neck, arms, hands, bronchials, and hearing – effecting individual creativity and communication.

It is believed that a person who activates all seven nerve pathways at least once a day can remain well balanced emotionally, physically and spiritually. Since this is the goal of all sincere Muslims, we all should strive to attain the perfection of stance, recitation, and breathing recommended in the Hadith while performing our prayers – the very same techniques of perfection taught in popular yoga, Tai Chi, and many other exercise classes.

Berikut adalah pandangan DR.MOHD ASRI bekas Mufti Perlis:-

“Majlis Fatwa jangan hanya mengharamkan saja tapi berilah alternatif. Banyak lagi amalan-amalan sukan yang diambil dari budaya lain seperti tai chi, judo, taekwando. Semua sukan ini bukan asal usul Islam tetapi diamalkan kerana ianya baik untuk kesihatan,” jelas Dr Asri dalam satu temubual telefon sebentar tadi.
Dr Asri difahamkan tidak hadir dalam mesyuarat Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan berkenaan kerana dikatakan kurang selesa dengan sikap diskriminasi JAKIM kepadanya dan kenyataan Pengarah JAKIM yang tidak berapa senang dengan pandangan alternatif beliau.
Pun begitu, ini tidak menghalang beliau untuk memberi satu lagi pandangan tentang fatwa ‘yoga’.
“Pengamal-pengamal yoga yang beragama Islam sepatutnya ada alternatif dengan diberikan satu versi amalan yoga yang terpisah dengan pergerakan yang terlalu jelas menyamai agama lain, bacaan-bacaan yang bertentangan dengan agama Islam dan kepercayaan karut. Versi yoga yang disyorkan ini seharusnya mengekalkan pergerakan yang baik untuk kesihatan.
“Tanggalkan yang bertentangan sahaja, samada pergerakan, bacaan atau kepercayaan. Kekalkan pergerakan yoga yang baik untuk kesihatan,” jelas Dr Asri.
Kata Dr Asri lagi, Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan sepatutnya tidak terlalu kaku.
“Fatwa yang dikeluarkan pada zaman sekarang hendaknya jangan terlalu kaku. Berilah alternatif yang memisahkan amalan yoga yang mengandungi unsur agama dengan amalan yoga yang baik untuk kebaikan kesihatan. Sekiranya ada kelebihan dari segi kesihatan dan ianya memanfaatkan, itu boleh dikekalkan.
“Pergerakan manusia itu tidak semestinya berkaitan dengan agama. Sama seperti amalan judo, misalnya. Apa yang tidak sesuai, dihapuskan saja dan diambil manfaatnya. Kita kekalkan pergerakan yang meafaatkan badan,” jelas Dr Asri.
Beliau juga berharap Majlis Fatwa memberi ruang untuk umat Islam melihat alternatif.

KARNIVAL WAJA DIRI 2008

KARNIVAL Waja Diri dahulunya dikenali sebagai KARNIVAL SENI MEMPERTAHANKAN DIRI HARI KEBANGSAAN, diadakan setiap tahun sempena hari kebangsaan dan menjadi aktiviti tahunan anjuran Kementerian Belia Dan Sukan Malaysia.

Karnival ini mula diperkenalkan pada tahun 1996 yang mana GM Dato' Sabree Salleh menjadi Pengarah Teknikal Pertama yang menyelia aktiviti di peringkat kebangsaan ini. Boleh dikatakan beliaulah yang menemukan semua perguruan seni bela diri di negara ini bagi menjayakan program yang bertujuan mempromosi aktiviti-aktiviti sihat seni bela diri dan meraikan Hari Kebangsaan. Justeru semua bela diri beraliran silat, taekwon-do, wushu, karate, silambam dll. beridentitikan bangsa dan masyarakat majmuk disatukan melalui program sebegini. Setiap negeri melalui Jabatan Belia Dan Sukan masing-masing akan menyediakan kontinjen yang terdiri dari pelbagai seni bela diri.

Acara-acara dipertandingkan mengikut disiplin seni masing-masing dan melalui setiap badan seni bela diri kebangsaan. Ini bermakna, negeri yang mempunyai badan seni bela diri yang pelbagai mempunyai peluang pungutan pingat yang lebih baik. Sebagai contoh Selangor, Wilayah Persekutuan dan Pulau Pinang, boleh dikatakan negeri-negeri ini mempunyai semua jenis seni bela diri. Tidak seperti Terengganu yang terhad kerana ratio populasi bangsa Melayu adalah jauh lebih tinggi dari bangsa lain. Justeru seni bela diri seperti Silambam, Kalari Payat, Wushu dan Karate-Do tidak mendapat tempat kerana tidak wujud persatuan di peringkat negeri Terengganu. Seni seperti Silat Gayung, Silat Cekak dan Taekwon-Do lebih popular. TAEKWON-DO pula dipecahkan kepada dua perguruan melalui badan kebangsaan MTA (WTF) dan MITF. Kini masih juga dua dengan MTA (WTF) diketepikan akibat masalah dalaman dengan Pejabat Pesuruhjaya Sukan - acara ITFM dan MGTF kini dipertandingkan.

Karnival 1996 mencatat sejarah untuk PTNT (dahulunya dikenali sebagai PTT (ITF) apabila menjadi satu-satunya persatuan yang berjaya mewarnakan EMAS kepada JBS Terengganu. Lebih bangga buat diri saya lagi kerana menjadi individu berkenaan. Saya telah membantu melalui 1 Emas dalam Free Sparring dan 1 Perak dalam Individual Pattern.

Karnival seterusnya juga melihatkan penguasaan fighter dari Terengganu seperti Nasree Najmi, Nasriah Najmi, Mohd Badri, Ahmad Faiz, Jaysuman (kini ITFM), Siti Shaheila (kini ITFM) dan ramai lagi semasa remaja mereka yang berjaya membuahkan pingat untuk kontinjen JBS Terengganu.

Karnival 2008 - USM Pulau Pinang
27-30 November 2008

Kini syarat-syarat diperketatkan dengan pembabitan umur maksima 21-Tahun dan yang telah memenangi pingat di peringkat kebangsaan tidak dibenarkan sama sekali. Ini bermakna, pasukan Taekwon-Do MGTF Terengganu tidak boleh menurunkan fighters seperti:-

Nasirewan (20 Tahun) - Pemenang Emas & Perak MGTF 2008 & Gangsa Sukma 2008
Putri Adriana (16 Tahun) - Pemenang Emas MGTF 2008
Aizuddin (20 Tahun) - Pemenang Gangsa MGTF 2008

Bagaimana pun pasukan ini masih tidak ketandusan remaja yang berkelayakan dan mampu memberi saingan sengit. Peserta-peserta yang berjaya semasa Kejohanan Taekwon-Do Tahunan Terengganu dari 2006 hingga tahun ini disaran menyertai saringan yang dikendali oleh En.Nasirewan.

Persediaan pelatih-pelatih diadakan di dua buah pusat latihan iaitu di Pusat Latihan Kuala Terengganu di bawah kendalian Nasirewan dan di Pusat Latihan Kemaman di bawah saya sendiri. Persediaan juga dibantu oleh jurulatih seperti En.Rahman dan En.Aizuddin.

"Old Man" Taekwondoists

November 03, 2008

Taekwon-Do contains many techniques to be learnt and hyungs or pattern movements to be memorised. Many of young students who hold senior rank color belts when they take a break from attending training for sometime (normally during their school/college holiday), will simply forget their patterns and even required kicking techniques to be performed for their respective upgrading test. They simply do not understand why they need to pursue training even though not in the presence of instructor.

I have encountered old taekwondoist friends who come for my training when they find out that I am still active in this arena and got several schools which they can attend, they decide to resume their taekwon-do lesson, after all my Dan/Degree now is higher than them. They have paused training for a quite long time. After college they found job and get married and have children and surely time consuming they have no training at all in taekwon-do, but they were during their school and college days among the best and hardworking taekwon-do practitioners, even much senior than I am.

Surprisingly, they can still remember all the patterns. Yes for a while they seems to forget, but when I showed them a little movement, they recaptured the memory. In free-sparring techniques and self-defense it is much easier for them to rejuvenate. It is so different with nowadays young practitioners.

WHY? ... When a taekwondoist trains patterns or techniques continously and repeatedly he will master them easily, although not perfect, but able to perform them well with confidence. We called it Muscle Memory.

In free-sparring, muscle memory plays vital role. When a taekwondoist trains certain technique repeatedly he will be able to perform for example a counter-attack with speed which is due to his reflect ability.

I have to admit some of my old friends and students like Rahman, Shahabuden and Tun are part of this kind of practice and tradition. They gain reflect and memory throughout their past experience. They were sharp before but blunt during halt, alas - their body still be able remember the movements and continuing taekwon-do lessons is not a burden and they will love it as before. They only struggle with stamina. Hence trainings with accessories in taekwon-do gym will improve them. Another problem they are facing is "fatigue" due to daily professional job (this will be discussed later).

This is an extract from Wiki:-
When an active person repeatedly trains movement, often of the same activity, in an effort to stimulate the mind’s adaptation process, the outcome is to induce physiological changes which attain increased levels of accuracy through repetition. Even though the process is really brain-muscle memory or motor memory, the colloquial expression "muscle memory" is commonly used.

Individuals rely upon the mind’s ability to assimilate a given activity and adapt to the training. As the brain and muscle adapts to training, the subsequent changes are a form or representation of its muscle memory.

There are two types of motor skills involved in muscle memory: fine and gross. Fine motor skills are very minute and small skills we perform with our hands such as brushing teeth, combing hair, using a pencil or pen to write, touch typing or even playing video games. Gross motor skills are those actions that require large body parts and large body movements as in the throwing sports such as bowling, American football, and baseball, sports such as rowing, basketball, golf, judo, and tennis, and activities such as driving a car (especially one with a manual transmission), playing a musical instrument, and marksmanship.

Muscle memory is fashioned over time through repetition of a given suite of motor skills and the ability through brain activity to inculcate and instill it such that they become automatic. Activities such as brushing the teeth, combing the hair, or even driving a vehicle are not as easy as they look to the beginner. ..........



Above all of these, it is
willingness to pursue trainings and maintain at reasonable level and contribution to society is much more important. Something hard to achieve by many working class.
