Is the end of Olympic TKD near?
I have noticed a lot of TKD threads lately that usually have several people saying how great TKD is and then another group bashing them and basically calling them idiots (in very creative ways I might add).
So here is a couple of things that I thought I would bring up for discussion.
1. It seems IMO that the interest in Olympic TKD is beginning to wane, and it is possible that in the near future it will no longer be an Olympic event. If it is removed from the Olympics do you think TKD instructors will begin to rediscover their roots and TKD will once again become more of a hardcore style (perhaps like Kyokushin)? Or will the same WTF Olympic crap continue to be shoveled to the masses?
2. If TKD had not become an Olympic event what do you believe state of TKD would be today?
I look forward to hearing everyone's opinions
