    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    TKD in all of it's broken insteps glory.

    The more time I spend on the internet the more I realize educating the masses is a damn near impossible task. I look at gifs like

    and all I can see is terrible technique and combat roleplay complete with toy props to fluff up the image of competence. Maybe someone can help me out, how the **** is this a thing?

    Its a thing because people are stupid and belive films. Then they take their kids to a stripmall mcdojo/dojang thinking they are going to learn real stuff. So they take their kids to said place and learn garbage cos the parents dont know any better. Generations later we have this ****.

    It looks cool.

    And in my mind, that at least gives it a smidgeon of value for SOMETHING. Unlike the Chun.

    If you educate the masses then they'll cease to be the masses.

    Well, the middle one in particular is trying to fold over just from being held vertical. Maybe the top one was dipped in baby powder or corn starch or something as well?

    It's hard to discount that he made the strikes. Impressive, but not martially useful. The technique itself is vulnerable to all manner of attack; forget the fact that if it was anything harder than a sheet of paper he wouldn't have been likely to score all three hits. Also, who fights opponents that tall?
