    I totally agree, it is. This guy, however seems to think it's to be more cultured and fluid.

    I almost bring myself to like Pagan 'cause I used to practice kuk sool won, and still have respect for the art and people I trained with, but then he came with the disastrous " I have learned both TKD and Kung fu in my own personal JKD concepts of kuk sool won."..... why dude?, why?

    Learn the history and concepts behind your art, and then run your mouth, it doesn't work when you do it the other way around :seppuku:

    I hope you're right about the "culture and fluidity" thing. This way I won't get punched and kicked all over the kwoon when I start sparring.


    Well, actually, I just think you're full of crap.

    It is good to hear from a KSW practitioner who has sense of humor about himself.

    Serious question: what's with the fans?

    No one is perfect. Everyone should be able to laugh at themselves I think.

    To answer your question. Well a big part of KSW is learning cultural/historical weapons and such, even if they're not practical today. I don't know why these fans in particular were chosen to be sold on the website, but fans in general were a weapon of the far east in history. I have been a dummy to the technique sets of fans as performed by one of my instructors. Basically a lot of them are strikes with the fan folded up (which hurt a lot I might add). There are also a number of techniques in the set that make use of the fact that it was common place to have metal spines with sharpened tips. So the fan could be opened up and used to slice.
