I figured I throw in my opinion about the whole thing. I practice Taekwondo and I did high school wrestling for 3 years. Anyone who jump kicks in a fight is a moron, and deserves the broken bones they get. There is no supperior martial art. There are only superior martial artists. Saying that Taekwondo sucks and that everyone who does it is a fag, is a really ignorant statement. Every art has its strong points, and its weak points. Bashing on a particular art is a waste of time, and if it is because of a bad experience at a certain dojo/dojahng, that is really unfortunate. I love TKD, I wouldn't trade it for the world. But it's not the only MA out there. Everyone should go and try some other arts as well.

I agree, by the way, that a TKD stylist can be a good full contact fighter. It is indeed the artist, not the art. I think my argument would be they'd be better if they were in a different art.
I'm a little bitter right now because I wasted five good years on something that didn't teach me how to fight effectively. So in my case, it is the art.

a TKD stylist, in training to become a full contact fighter, would have to deviate from TKD a lot. They'd learn things de-emphasized or untaught at the dojang. They'd have to learn to deal with punches to the head, kicks below the belt, possibly knees, elbows, holds, throwing, and *gasp* opponents that shove you if you try to kick high like a ballerina!
Yes, they can, but they'd deviate from TKD a lot in doing so.

If they are training in traditional TKD, then they aren't deviating too much from their original training. Only if they practice Olympic/Sport TKD do they deviate from that training.

I agree it's more the artist than the art. But, I'd also have to agree that TKD is not too useful in a real fight. High kicking will not do too much good on the street IMHO.

Again, Masta, you are describing Olympic/Sport TKD. Traditional TKD does not teach this. However, I do enjoy kicking to the head....Their knees just has to be on the ground first. :)
