I understand that it's a demo to show how focused and totaly ready to kick ass the North Koreans are ... but damn it , guys with Ax's would have been more impressive . Maybe some double hachet kata/breaking demos or something ...
I don't get it, is he calling his own style bullshido?
99% forms? Check.
Choreographed demos to demonstrate effectiveness? Check.
Vastly exagerating the effects of blows in said demos? Check.
Unrealistic one step drilling? Check.
Breaking previously weakened, or already weak materials? (bricks, lol) Check.
Incessant screaming? (sorry, kiai..) Check.
Yup, pretty much qualifies! Thanks for bringing this up.
I'm embaressed for you Der, you shouldn't have to share an acronymn with these guys.
The sparring in the videos is a good demonstration of taekwondo sparring. It contains:
o falling down after attempt to kick
o lowered guard
Which are the trademarks of taekwondo sparring.
The precision kicks were pretty fun to watch though. I wish I could kick like that.

in that third picture, if you aren't looking too closely, the guys holding the stick sort of merge into a giant... that was about as interesting as it got for me
And we wonder why the Japanese spanked us so hard...
No in all seriousness, for a TKD demo that pretty good. I mean think about your typical American shopping mall TKD demos. Least these guys seemed like they practiced their choreography and were in synch on their forms.
Oh geez their forms. The sine wave is international. I thought I was gonna get seasick all over my keyboard.
I liked the blindfolded start at the other end of the room and back handspring into a double flip break. That was cool, considering if she had messed up she would probably be beaten half to death...
Imagine the poor sonofabitch that is the NK TKD coach.
He's in the position of being personably liable to a drooling pyscho if he can't get the "national art" to perform.
That poor, poor bastard.
