Ten race enters crucial stages

With the Big Ten race for the Roses
entering a crucial week, a number of
conference teams can make or break
their season today.
In addition to the Michigan-Iowa
clash in Ann Arbor, league co-leader
Wisconsin travels to East Lansing to
face Michigan State, Ohio State hosts
Illinois, Minnesota goes on the road to
Indiana, and Northwestern is at home
against Purdue.
ONE OF THE key contests is in
Columbus, where the Buckeyes hope to.
rebound from last week's loss to
Wisconsin. The visiting Illini also'suf-
fered their first conference loss last
week, as Purdue bulldozed through a
- weak Illinois defense on the way to a 44-
20 win.
The Buckeyes' fate will probably lie
in the passing game of quarterback Art
Schlichter, who has completed 89 of 160

passes this season for 1,198 yards and
six touchdowns. Illinois should also put
on a good offensive show with the potent
passing game of Tony Eason, who has
an edge on Schlichter statistically with
98 completions in 160 tries.,
The Hoosiers of Indiana are in dire
need of some off-season basketball en-
thusiasm to fire up their gridders when
they face a seemingly superior Min-
nesota team. After squeaking past Nor-
thwestern in the season opener, 21-20,
Indiana promptly lost its next two non-
conference and two conference games,
dropping to 1-4 overall.
THE GOPHERS, meanwhile, are
looking to pick up their first win in
Bloomington in 13 years. Minnesota has.
won four games, all at home, while
dropping one on the road to Illinois. But
the road jinx doesn't bother Minnesota
coach Joe Salem.
'I don't believe in all that stuff," said

Wisconsin, Ohio State
face key contests

Salen. "All I know is that we are
mioving into the toughest part of our
schedule, and if we hope to improve our
record we'll just have to stiap things on
and get at it. If we play well we can win.
If we don't play well we'll get
beat-home or away."
Testing the Hoosiers' defense will be
the combination of quarterback Mike
Hohensee and flanker Chester Cooper.
Against Northwestern last week,
Hohensee threw for a personal-best 251
yards, with Cooper catching nine of the

tosses in the Gophers' 35-23 win.
PURDUE, 1-2 IN the conference,
travels to face Northwestern, 0-3 in the
league, with i lesson learned by past
experience-don't take the Wildcats too
lightly. Two years ago, the Boiler-
makers were forced to score a touch-
down in the final moments of the game
to nip Northwestern, 20-16. And after
two losses on the road to Minnesota and
Wisconsin this season, you can bet that
coach Jim Young's squad will be ready.
The Wildcats rely heavily on the pass,

but Purdue's new "dime-package"
defense, which keys on the pass, should
put a clamp on Northwestern's air at-
tack. Leading the way for the Boiler-
maker defenders is 6-3, 220-pound out-
side linebacker Roosevelt Barnes, who
accounted for 13 tackles and three
sacks against Illinois last week.
Northwestern coach Dennis Green
will look to freshman signal-caller
Kevin Villars to lead the attack against
Purdue. Against Minnesota last week,
Villars had the fourth best passing day
in Wildcat history, completing 25 of 42
pass attempts.,
FOR THE FIRST time all season, the
Badgers of coach Dave McClain are on
the road, facing Michigan State.
Coming off a 24-21 victory over Ohio
State last week, Wisconsin has
established itself as the front-runner in

the race for the Big Ten title.

The Spartans, on the other hand, are
winless in the league and are coming off
last week's 38-20 loss to Michigan.
Helping the Spartans out, though, are
the injuries to Wisconsin running backs
Chucky Davis and John Williams, who
will miss the game today. But the
Badgers displayed good depth in last
week's win over OSU. "Depth was the
key for us there," admitted McClain.
Spartan quarterback Bryan Clark
passed at will against the Wolverines
last week, completing 21 of 38 passes for
316 yards and two touchdowns. Clark,
the son of Detroit Lions coach Monte
Clark, could help his team stop the
Badgerexpress. Leading the Wisconsin
defense is All-American candidate nose
guard Tim Krumrie.


Tae kwon do gains popularity

The most popular martial art in the
world is not judo or aikido, but instead a
rather obscure activity called tae kwon
do, according to Keith Hafner, the
manager and head instructor of "The
Academy," a studio for martial arts
located on S. Main in Ann Arbor.
Tae kwon do (which translates into
"foot, hand, mind" in Korean) was
developed about 2,000 years ago as a
method of self-defense which has
evolved into a sport. While involving
the use of most of the body's muscles,
tae kwon do stresses - kicking

HAFNER, WHO has earned a second-
degree black belt and is soon to shoot
for the third-degree honor after eight
years of work, said that the city of Ann
Arbor, and the state of Michigan in
general, is an active area for tae kwon
do study. The number of students
taking tae kwon do classes at The
Academy is "up 25 percent over last
year and growing about 20 percent per
Hafner believes that tae kwon do is a
more efficient means of self-defense
than either aikido or judo, and that its
graceful combination of spinning kicks
and punches increases its attrac-
tiveness even more.



"You can react offensively if you
have to, to disable your assailant,"
Hafner said. To use most other martial
arts, one must be attacked before being
able to do anything.
HIS BROTHER Robert, a first-
degree black belt, said, "Tae kwon do is'
growing at a much faster rate (than
other martial arts) because it is easier
to learn."
The different levels of achievement,
from the bottom, are white, green, blue,
brown, and several degrees of black
belt. On the average, an individual
must study for two-and-a-half years
before attaining the level of black belt.
Approximately 225 people, of both
sexes and all different age groups, train
at The Academy, most with the hope
that tae kwon do will improve their
abilities to defend themselves. A
typical course consists of eight weeks of
two one-hour-and-a-half classes.
THERE ARE other motives that
people have who put themselves
through the rigors of tae kwon do,
however. Not the least of these is the
discipline which the sport requires,
both mentally and physically. For
some, it becomes almost a way of life.
Keith Hafner said that when begin-
ning, physical conditioning is more im-
portant than mental. It "is faster to
train the body than the mind," he ex-
plained. He said that the sport becomes
more of a mental experience as one
moves up the scale, with the level of
black belt requiring almost completely
mental faculties. He maintained that a

90-year-old man would be able to hold
his own because of experience and
mental discipline.
An added attraction of studying tae
kwon do at The Academy is that the
seventh-ranked non-oriental in the
world, Master Edward Sell, frequently
pays visits to lecture and demonstrate
the, branch of tae kwon do called
"chung do kwan." Sell is also president
and founder of the Korean Tae Xwon Do
Association of America, and he has
spent, 18 years of full-time study,
training, and teaching the sport.
A TYPICAL TAE kwon do workout
takes place in a stark, all-white rec-
tangular training room. There is
nothing else in the room, excepting one
American and one Korean flag, in order
to allow students to concentrate com-
pletely on the task at hand. Upon en-
tering (and exiting) the room, each
student bows to signify respect for the
The workout begins with the students
in rows facing the flags and the instruc-
tor. After bowing to both, the students
do some stretching and running-in-
place. They then move on to defensive
stances and offensive maneuvers. The
session concludes with some limited-
contact sparring by the higher-ranking
Hafner said that a good way to get in=
volved in tae kwon do is to observe a
practice or tournament. There are not
any competitions in Ann Arbor in the
immediate future, but one takes place
at Chelsea High School on November 1.
