    The term I use for that definition is "girl."

    Blame english for not having a cooler way to say: striking art with strong emphasis on kicks.

    No, it works and I was just giving you ****, especially since "Taekwon" could be translating as kickboxing...

    Lets talk about the ''wave'' in TKD, for hand strikes? Is there a way to do it for kicks?

    It's like a wavy up and down motion? KNow what im talking about?

    The sine-wave? That's too much fine-tuning for a kick, isn't? Besides, why should we listen to TKD techs for punches?

    the "wave" sucks. period. it's a stupid invention of Gen. Choi. it's a silly attempt at introducing pseudo-science into tkd to make it sound scientific. it's not even a true sine wave like the proponents say, it's a sinusoidal wave that rises slowly then falls fast and repeats. garbage, all of it.

    The sine wave is definitely an inferior theory compared to the simple basic concept of keeping your "bok", your center, weighted and down. I've never seen it used to similar affect as keeping your center low. I'd go into more detail, but I have to get going.

    To be honest; i thought of the Sine wave as a rudimentary form of sinking when striking seen in Hsing i, tai chi and Haka styles like Bak mei.

    I think it was basically put in to make sure people stay light on thier feet but sink when striking; but then became as it is right now.

    This is my own THEORY however.

    Can somone correct me?

    the only problem is that they incorporated the sine wave into forms, and no one fights like tkd forms. plus, the whole theory doesn't make any real sense.
