Uncommon Footage of Yetbub Taekkyon
YouTube- Power of Taekyun.wmv
Hi guys, I just ran across some uncommon footage on Yetbub (옛법) Taekkyon demo by Jang Tae Sik (he was also in "Geochilmaru") on youtube, so I am putting this link to share.
Yetbub translates into English as the 'old ways/methods', it's not a style of Taekkyon, rather it is a term for calling techniques that are no longer used in the "competitions" for various reasons (1. it may cause too much pain/injury, 2.it was really intended to kill, 3. techniques that are just no longer used as competitions concentrated more on foot skills and take downs; ex-many hand techniques, 4. etc).
Since I had citation issue pointed out last time, I am just reading off info from excerpt of "택견 그리고 나의 스승 송덕기 (Taekkyon and My teacher Song Duk Ki)" by 도기현 (head of Kyulyun Taekkyon).
I heard about yetbub, but I think this is first time I saw an actual footage of it. I added loose translations of technique captions so enjoy.
