    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Recently in TKDTimes, there was an article wth GM Ji, Han-jae of HKD. In this article it talked about how he was the root of all the HKD that is alive today. Within this article there was another person who claims to be the man who will take over for GM Ji. However, it has already been confirmed by GM Ji that this is not so.

    Now my question remains is that do we honestly need to name a successor to our art? It seems this causes more damage to the art than help it. Back in the old day a GM would hand down his system to his best senior. This was done without question or altercations. Now when this happens people, who don't respect the GM's decision, break off from the norm, form their own organization and claim to teach the GM's "true art" (ie. Wing Chun vs Ving Tsun) Who is right and who is wrong? Neither.

    We all precieve something due to our backgrounds, upbringing, religion, etc.. With that in mind, I believe we need to do away with the successor system. When I teach my students I want them to take what I teach them, adapt it to their needs and run with it. I pray none of my students will be exactly like me...I pray they will be better.

    Thank you for that meaningless input BJJ. Now can we get some intellectual view points on the topic at hand?

    great point, There still maybe a need for some type of leadership to keep the core of the system intact. Trad. m.a. is based on maintaining tradition.

    Do you really train or just bore people on message boards and parties talking about it.
