Glad to know some folks in the ITF. There aren't many ITF dojos in Nor Cal, mostly other TKD dojos,but I go to one I've been going to for years: an open sparring workout put on by Andre Amacker, he learned from Julius Baker. All styles are invited to spar, it is friendly workout and we're all there to have fun, share info and learn, and we've been sparring together for close to 20 years, some of us! I started training in 1974.
I got my Black Belt in 1981 in Colorado. But mostly I keep my skills sharp for the street, to alleviate stress, and cuz I LOVE to spar! It puts me in such a great mood if I go to my workout on a regular basis!
Every year I teach a women's self defense and empowerment workshop on the land up in the redwoods in Mendocino.
