    I have a dream that TKD people will wake up and realize the roots of their art, and thus cast aside the Bullshido that has accumulated on their Way like barnacles on a ship.

    Command position? What the hell is a command position?

    It's not a meditation posture. There is no such thing as "meditation postures" in Okinawan kata, ergo, any meditation posture found in TKD hyung is bullshit.

    As I said before, it comes from an Okinawan kata called Kongsangkoon. Funakoshi Japanized it when he brought it into Shotokan. He renamed the kata "Kanku", which means "Gazing into the Void", just for this main gesture.

    You are correct Sir. What system of Okinawan Karate do you study?

    Kongsangkoon was the name of a Chinese emissary who brought the kata to the Ryukyu kingdom.
    People often tell me that I fail to see the gravity of the situation.
    I see the gravity, and I say...

    Step right up folks and watch me defy gravity!

    I love this thread.... love it. But sadly, some photo's of me could likely fit in here.

    TKD still owns you though... face it... stop resisting, pick up you dobak and learn to do a flying side kick.... pussies...

    Why are there no pics of hot girls? This is TKD! This bored should be rampant with pictures of hot girls doing kicks and stances and all that other crap that make me want to hang myself with my own belt.
