I guess it depends on the teacher and the student. We spend a lot of time on bag work and proper mechanics with an emphasis on the hip torque, but I can't speak for anything other than me and my teachers.

There was almost NO power generation, and I imagine that if SD as a whole made power generation part of their sparring training, that it would have shown up, especially after the Sifu at the school told Cory to KTFO Hedge. The stance wasn't well suited for power, there was very litle hip work. You could tell the guys were used to point sparring-style confrontations. He was set up to throw out fast flicky techniques that would make contact, but very lightly, and then move away very quickly.
That's exactly how it was when I did TKD.

one more thing,
are SD schools not very regulated as far as what is taught and how it's taught?

Apparently not, despite them being a single organization.

If I may.....
As for what is required between each rank, yes it is regulated. All schools are on the same page .
As for how it is taught...that depends on the instructor. I can look at a student and pretty much tell what school (head instructor) he learned. All instructors will (by accident or not) add or polish those things at which they are the best. To the extreme that they polish certian areas is where some of the variation comes in.

Obviously sarcasm is lost on you. I'm not taking myself even half as seriously as you're taking me by saying something like that. I just threw my two cents worth of oppinion of this litle soap opera into the mix, and had a bit of fun with some of the replies. You guys are cracking me up. Party on dudes and dudettes.

Thanks for jumping in GT. There is a difference from school to school as to the polish of the material, to emphasis on stances, to power emphasis. Quality control is a problem in SD and one that is often discussed but very little is ever done about it. In short, you will see some SD students with great power and others who just employ the flippy techniques that you experienced. I know that when I teach, I emphsize the mechanics that will generate power, but I can't guarentee that its properly absorbed.

Going with Anthony's flow ---
How many SD goons does it take to create accounts for posting in this thread to be overly defensive thus making their organization look like a circus show?
