    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Calling for friends NOT enimies....(intro thread moved)

    YAY!!!! Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm not trying to talk tough or seem more experienced than I am. I joined this site to find friends and to discuss this beautiful art, NOT to argue! But the first thing I see is people bashing a man they don't even know... Which does up set me a little. Meet-ups sound like fun! My brother trains in Shol-in-do so I don't have a lot of conversations outside of practice... About my Grandmaster- I do not need to see his list of accomplishments on paper, I have seen the true man behind them. He has after school programs to teach kids how to defend themselves from bullies, he works with men in wheelchairs to give them the knowledge that they are as able to do all the things that people with two legs and do, one whom is walking again! He waves his fees for battered women and teaches them they do not have to be a victim anymore and that they are confident strong woman, he has took a little girl that was bullied and with drawn and turned her into an out going confident young lady. This is how I see my Grandmaster not by his paper work or awards. And this is what I want to be apart of! Not a bunch of men boasting how tough they are! Tell me what you are doing with you knowledge, how you are helping others.....

    Hi and welcome,

    Would you care to elaborate a little on what "Original Taekwondo" is, I don't think I have heard TKD referred to as that before,

    thanks

    Sure! Well japan invaded korea and imprisoned anyone who studied or practiced Korean tkd, by enforcing this law they stripped the Korean people of their own martial art. The Korean ppl had to obey or be shot or imprisoned. What we are bring back to the for front is the "original" NOT Jap style which was enforced and taught to this day. That is the best way I can explain it....

    Sounds like your teacher helps people, which is great. We had a lady TKD intructor here years ago who taught in a way that helped lots of people and she quit, disgusted at the snotty atmosphere. Beyond the sniping and bragging and put downs there IS a lot of value in this site, one just has to have a bit of a thick skin AND be able to back up one's beliefs / practices. It was too bad that she left, offended, because almost everyone here does believe, like the founder of Kyokushinkai, that martial arts are for everyone and everyone can benefit from practice.

    Taekwondo is derived from Shotokan. Take away the Japanese influence from TKD and there's not much left.

    hmm, not sure about your history, there was no TKD when Japan invaded Korea, it was developed after the occupation based on Shotokan learned from the Japanese invaders
