    They're very atheletic but they almost always miss, rarely land for any serious impact and a lot of the time the kicker loses their balance. It's more like an XMA display than a fight.

None of the Korean Buddhist orders have any record of his existence (which is a huge deal when you consider the importance of lineage in Bulgyo). Further, leading Buddhist masters who do have a documented, provable lineage have stated in interviews that Joo Bang Lee has created a fictional account of his arts origin to give himself legitimacy.

    There is zero evidence that any of Lee's claims of lineage to an organization that died out over a thousand years ago is true.

    Actually, no, there is no historic evidence of this claim. Feel free to site any actual Korean historian if you have proof otherwise.

    One of the main things I noticed in that video was that while the style is supposed to have a grappling component, and it looked like throws were allowed in the competition, the competitors didn't manage to try anything beyond the odd poorly attempted leg tackle.
