that is what actually happens when you get knee'd in the stomach, knowing martial arts doesn't prevent people from feeling pain (except those shaolin monks, they can take hits to the balls and smile it off)

172- EXACTLY! my friend just got her black belt. then, she fell down the stairs and broke her arm and two ribs. black belts don't give you super powers. you still get hurt, and surprised, and attacked by little kids.

taekwondo isn't useless at all. it can have many practical applications. I think op is upset that he couldnt read and/or deflect the attack. I don't believe it has as much to do with pain. but yeah that sucks op. give him a sky-tearing snap-kick of doom to the face next time!!

you should train in some Hawaiian kenpo
or kajukembo, both are very similar... and help to hive you superhuman abilities. you could even take two to the chest ad shrug it off!!!!

136- Again, don't get angry, I'm not usually a Grammar Nazi, but since I have nothing else to do, I guess I will try it out :P. When the words 'has' or 'have' are used with the past participle of a verb (i.e.-'have tackled') the perfect tense is formed. When 'had' is used with the past participle of a verb, it forms the past perfect tense (i.e.-'had tackled'). Thus, the word 'have' is not past, but perfect.

" outcome contrary to expectations"

According to that definition this FML would be ironic.

What happened to the OP was opposite (contrary) of what he thought would happen.

You didn't really just prove that this post is ironic... Unless he learned taekwondo because he thought someone was going to knee him in the stomach, and thought that learning taekwondo would prevent them from kneeing him in the stomach... Which he didn't.

But one of the reasons he probably took taekwondo was to defend himself from assailants. This would include being kneed in the stomach. He was unable to defend himself from this assault, which is contrary to what he expected. So in a way it could possibly be irony.

Yes because giving a kid some candy would get you into a better situation.

Also OP he could've been a black belt too and the element of surprise is... well suprising.

Looks like you need to practice Taekwondo more often.

you guys...sheesh. if OP wasn't expecting the punch (and it sounds like he wasn't) it really doesn't make a difference whether he has 0 training or, as he says, a black belt in taekwondo.

Furthermore, as such a high rank in taekwondo, he should know for a fact that a hit to the stomach (or worse, 8 inches lower) can be painful and even dangerous if the victim is caught unawares.

Either way, if he's slow enough to be taken off guard by a 12 year old his instructor hasn't really been teaching much.

These days it seems every failed karate instructor claims he's a Tae Kwon Do master and "teaches" students in his unique style.
