    Taekwondo Grappling Techniques

    I was at the bookstore today and I found this:

    Takwondo Grappling Techniques
    http://www.amazon.com/Taekwondo-Grap.../dp/0804840067

    I literally lol'd out loud

    So I looked into the book and saw the author claiming to use Taekwondo poomsae (kata) to grapple. But surprisingly the book actually looked viable except for the poomsae part.

    Can anyone confirm if the author is legit in both TKD and/or grappling?

    Yeah, I remember that one at Half Price Books. If I'm not mistaken, one of the authors was a purple or brown belt in BJJ... not 100% certain there. But from what I gather, they just incorporated grappling techniques into the poomise. Don't remember if they claimed it was already there, or if they just added it.

    I thought tkd grappling was just hapkido with some basic judo thrown in.

    I took Tang Soo Do in the eighties and remember learning some Hapkido-ish throws and standing arm/wristlocks. By today's standards it would almost be laughable to call it grappling but in an era where TKD kick-punching ruled you felt like you were learning a great deal with all the bearhug and lapel grab defenses.

    Taekwondo Grappling Techniques presents the most effective grappling maneuvers ever developed for taekwondo.
    Well, that's probably true. Hello, you are now the tallest dwarf.

    Steve is the student of an instructor that I've studied with for a short while and have known for about six years(Danny Dring). Both Danny and Steve are ranked through the USTF (a regional ITF TKD type organization), Nova Uniao Jiu-jitsu and Weeping Willow Jujutsu (which is a regional aiki type jujutsu, some funny history but I thought they moved pretty decent) among others. I have met Steve some time ago and he came across as a skilled and nice guy.

    I paged through Steve's book and it looked like it was mostly retrofitted applications based on the JJJ. The material was split by the hyungs but there wasn't a particular theme for each hyung or anything. Despite what the title says it's really more wristlocky stuff and not MMA oriented.
