TKD ITF demo/sparring clip (large)
It's around 20 minutes, this is the North Korean ITF demo team. There's some nice choreography, breaks, and some sparring, skip around.Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

not bad. they're very well choreographed. the "self defense" was kinda hokey. though i still think the korean tigers do more exciting shows. and that damn sine wave!!

I thought the "beating guy with sticks" demo was cute.Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

yeah, but it's been overdone, mostly by the chi gung guys.

HAHAHAH @ the glowing fluorescent tubes for the characters
Far from the best camera work.
Some of the 'self-defense' comedy routine had me laughing, partly at the moves, partly at the screaming. That tied hand crap must be effective against capoeria!
Congratulations, they can break boards by doing backflips....
Didn't watch all of it, forms don't interest me, and breaks are nothing new.Surfing Facebook at work? Spread the good word by adding us on Facebook today! https://www.facebook.com/Bullshido

heh, yeah that camera work was just weird. at one point he was filming the floor between the people doing the forms for like a minute.

man i must be bored i sat through that entire thing i just have a few humble comments since i am a dirty dirty noob
1 last time i checked ive never tried to side snap kick a knife outta someones hands maybe it is just me
2 very good forms but the loud exhale between techs is gay ive gone to a ton of TMA TKD and open tourneys and i have always hated that
3 is this really from north korea
P.S. as far as self defence goes in the famous words of my instructor "run, run like a little girl, cry too, maybe some one will hear you." lol

Oops, I just realized this wasn't the demo that had the sparring in it, that's part 1. :cute blush:Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

Pynyoung is North Korea's capital, Seoul is South Korea's capital. The file says Seoul on it, it's most likely in South Korea.
edit: Thanks for correcting my spelling, I was to lazy to check. :)
Anyhow, I saw the video, the fighting was boring. If I wanna watch stuff like that I'd just watch a Jackie Chan flick. The forms weren't of my interest either. However the first breaker was impressive. That man had pretty darn good balance. His form was fast too, what I liked most was his spinning reverse sidekick (I believe that's what it's called, I'm sure you know what kick I'm talking about) I'm sure if he trained in a lot of sparring (full range) he'd actually turn out very impressive. The other breakers were unimpressive and meh okay.
So to wrap it up, the guy doing the axe kick was pretty good, everything else, meh.

Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog
