    This helped me to understand your first post.

    I am enlightened; this is what happens when someone (me) trains more for the physical aspects of TKD and only has a superficial grasp on the true history. Every time my TKD teacher started explaining Korean politics, the philosophical aspects of the art, or the history, I nodded my head up and down, acted like I totally understood, and went on to the next lesson.

    This is normally the safest thing to do, otherwise you end up like me & think anyone who practices Juche tul is essentially the equivalent of a Nazi sympathizer.

    Subak and Taekkyon are two different items all together. Neither which have original connection to Taekwondo. Kong/Gongsudo is another way of saying Karate for the most part. Tang/Dangsoodo is initself bastardized version of Shotokan with a touch of Chuan'fa added for flavor.

    Well crap on me...I pretth much just repeated what you said in my previous post. Should have read through. :) I would say though that TKD kicking was influenced by HKD kicking, which depending on what history you want to adhere to, was influenced by Taekkyon.

    As much as it may pain some people to be faced with, when we look at what the concepts of KMA were before the Japanese occupation and Taegwondo systems that mirror that in modern day, Olympic Taegwondo is far closer to Korean traditional spirit than ITF.
    Agreed. Especially the "spirit" of it. Koreans are very prideful people and the took something that was essentially Japanese and turned it into something that is completely their own art. I just got through reading a full history book on Korea and a lot of the their history has made helped me understand a bit more of their mentality when it comes to such things like Taekwondo.

    I may have even found some items that don't quite jive with the Killing Art take on history. Though I am still sifting through it to make sure.

    It is not the ones that practice the form so much as it is the ones going over to North Korea under the guise of "friendship" and support for that regime. Not to mention getting pictures of one person saluting a NK soldier.

    It's all the same. They support genocide.

    See, this is why you're a dipshit, Earl, considering that the art you teach was & is subsidized by North Korea, so in short, shut the **** up.

    Last time I checked, Germany is not a fascist nation. North Korea is.

    Every time you practice Juche tul, you are supporting the oppression of young women like this one:



    So, yeah, no. This is not like driving a VW.

    Seriously, why not just go learn Final Solution Kata.
