    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    WTF? Why has everyone surrendered TKD over to the LARPers, Mcdojos, and Form Addicts?

    Ok, I'm ranting here and noboy may read this. But I deserve to rant. So here goes...

    WHAT THE ****? Why the hell has everyone surrendered TKD over to the dumbass WTF and ATA? I thought this site was supposed to be about fighting the BS in MA. Everyone has surrendered TKD over to the crap schools. Everyone just makes fun of TKD, instead of making fun of the bad schools. What about the good (they're extremely rare but I'm convinced they exist) schools out there?

    I used to be part of a great school. We didn't **** around with forms all day. We didn't do point sparring. We allowed punches to the head. We didn't screw around with those shitty one step choreographed counters. We worked on forms for ten minutes, and if you couldn't get your one form per belt right then screw you. We worked on good technique, and good striking. We worked on becoming good at all those jumping reverse kicks.

    Now I know the shortcomings of TKD kicking techniques thanks to the "why don't kicks work in MMA" thread. But that doesn't stop a good TKD guy from being able to defend himself easily.

    So why not instead of making fun of TKD, why don't poeple just tell shitty practitioners where they can stick it?

    Hell what were to happen if BJJ suddenly became infested with LARPers, and some stupid org, started pushing BJJ as an olympic sport but introduced a ruleset that degraded it into garbage?

    What has happed to TKD can easily happen to any other art. All that needs to happen is the art needs to become extremely popular. (I call it the Yu Gi Oh effect. Named after the way the YGO card game, trashed the CCG world's rep amoung the nerd's of the world. )

    You really need to:

    1) Lurk more.
    2) Use the search button.

    Me and the search button don't get along. But I should have known this had been brought up before. Sorry. I kind of posted it on a whim.

    This has been beaten to death ten times, then resurrected and beaten to dead again ten times. And that was even before I came to this site.

    There are about a thousand of them.

    Spoiler:
    Pretty much every thread in which TKD is discussed.

    Yeah, but you have to remember it was developed against calvary. The Korean army could kick the invading samurai off of their horses.
