Most of you can talk **** but it doesn't prove anything.
    Read my profile, I've done TKD, with hard contact sparring, with leg kicks allowed, with boxing style punches thrown into the training. I think TKD Can and Does work...if trained properly.....the problem is that most people in here have only seen the TKD McDojangs.....hence why they say TKD sucks. The problem is that it seems that the majority of TKD clubs are crap....the good ones are a rare thing. At least in my experience.

    So the question becomes - for someone looking to start MA why bother going to a TKD club that will likely suck, when they can go to a MT or Kyukushin club that likely won't suck?

    If you start out in MT or KK the odds are in your favour that you'll get good training. As opposed to the odds being that you'll get sucky training in TKD.

    The real question is if Taekwondo can switch from suck...to blow...

    I think how most Taekwondo people shoot themselves in the foot is by "bouncing", it's meant to keep you agile or something but they do it in such a way that you can just time it and clobber them when they're up off the ground.

    P.S. TKD ag suraic.

    MistaKickz, will you be attending any TX Throwdown to show how you interpret TKD in a sparring context?

    Ya know, as much as that crappy boxer was getting "pwned", he sure didn't get hit particularily often or get particularily damaged when he did get kicked.
