I trained with a guy that was in the Colombian national team in TKD and he had some really good kicks. He started MMA and came to us for striking improvement. Though coming to think of it i actually could stand with him quit easy, and he was a high ranking and eqomplished competitor in TKD, so maybe it is a bit ****. If he was on the same level just in boxing or kickboxing he would have grind me easily. Never the less this guys (the competitive team) can kick nicely enough.

Everyone remember this ? TKD is demonstrably ineffective outside of point sparring
When you make the decision to kick a REFEREE in the face after he DQ's you you should at least knock him down with it. This guy (oh, and remember this when some TMA dope begins prattling on about "honor and respect" vs MMA thuggery) can't even land a decent kick when deliberately ending his own career.
That is the sort of thing that makes me hate TKD

But seriously I did TKD, very much a freestyle version of it. Moving on from that, most people here hate their McDojo-ness and shitty training methods.
I agree with this I did serious TKD with someone who was in the military and had a 4th degree and a 1st in karate not sure what style and who was also German. If you can find real. Good for you. If I could find a freestyle version with the non-light contact aspect -and the non-point sparring aspect with no chest protectors. then I would do it again here and there aside from what I do now.

For a kid or an adult to be motivated to do physical activity it's great. As a fighting style that can be used with an opponent other than a peice of wood it is quite useless.

You do realize that striking and grappling are two completely different things right? If you actually do train thai boxing and had mentioned that instead of bjj your statement would have made way more sense. Just saying.
