Those wmaa guys.. wow. Their "freestyle" seems to consist solely of low block - random kick back and forth ad infinitum. I don't understand how these people aren't seeing other TKD on the interwebs and realizing how crappy their system looks.
i just feel so bad for the people who spend time and money training this kind of stuff. must be such a crazy feeling when they go to a real MA gym for the first time.
I want to see Headmaster Dealy teach a class. All of my teachers have been incredibly specific about technique, and all of his students move just like him. Surely this is on purpose, right? Does he specifically tell them to lean over when they kick? Does he only teach the "low block -> (???) kick" combination in sparring? "Don't use your hips, kicking power comes from sticking your butt out. Lean over more."
I would give anything to hear him discuss technique.
yeah its actually kind of unbelievable that these people can watch that sparring, and then actually clap for the people involved. i just... wow. i dunno.
