    There was more public interest in Kyokushin. As for TKD schools changing format...it's too soon to tell.

    Yes.

    In fact, he and General Choi considered each other blood brothers.

    He returned to Korea on several occasions, and during the period when the kwans were unifying, was asked to return home to help in the development of Taekwondo. He stayed with General Choi, and considered it.

    However, at the time he was receiving quite a bit from "sponsors" in Japan, and felt obligated to return to Japan.

    Think about that for a second.

    Imagine what the MA world would be like today if Oyama had returned to Korea to have a hand in Taekwondo.

    No Kyokushin in Japan.

    Olympic TKD would not be the crap it is today.

    Korean Taekwondo would be badass.

    And all the Japanese would be left with...

    Would be Shotocunts.

















    I wake up at nights in a cold sweat due to the trauma.

    If Mas Oyama had returned to Korea and worked on the developement of TKD the results would probably be pretty far reaching. Not only would you have what Der listed above but you would have numerous top ranked pro fighters with TKD as their primary art.

    Look at how many K-1 guys claim Kyokushin as their primary style, they would all be TKD. You would still have splinter groups that would go off and have their own version of TKD, but they would all probably spar full contact.

    Bumping an old thread. BUt I'm in the middle of watching this movie and I can safely say without any doubt in my mind that this is probably one of the best movies I"ve seen in about 3 years. WTF is up with all these good movies coming of of Asia all of a sudden, especially with all the crap they've been spewing out since the early 70's? I needed to take a quick break because it was too much.

    Other Korean movies worth seeing. Especially the first two, they just totally kicked ass.

    Chin Gu (Friends)
    JSA (Joint Security Area)
    Swiri

    On a side note, the current Keanu Reeves movie "The Lake house" I believe is a remake of a Korean film that came out in 02 or 03 called "Love Letter"
