    T'euk Gong is Korean for Special Forces. Moo Sool means martial arts. I've never heard of these words combined.

    Anyway, T'euk Gong is what South Korean SF people say to each other when they salute. It sounds pretty cool the way they do it.

    "If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - for ever."
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    "It's techniques borrow from Tae Kwon Do, Hap Ki Do, Judo, Kung Fu, Akido, and many others."
    "Grand Master Yong Gil Song, himself an 8th degree black belt in Tuk Kong Moo Sool"

    It sounds like Song has a some kind of dan ranking in Hapkido, which is essentially (in appearance and technique) a mix of "Tae Kwon Do, ---, Judo, Kung Fu, Aikido" and has re-named it and gave himself an 8th dan.

    Tuk Gong was was created by Grandmaster Chang Soo Ok. It earned it's name of being the special forces martial art after a nation wide tournament held by the president of south Korea at the time it is no more then 40 years old and it's take downs if executed properly have no need for any further ground work. These guys train hard

    This bothers me.

    "If executed properly?" Does that mean you incapacitate your opponents every time with these perfectly-done throws? What throws are they doing exactly? Does it matter what surface it's on?

    Perhaps most importantly (though I fear I already know the answer), do they take this assumption into their training and thus, not train any groundwork after a takedown?

    One of my wifes friend was a member of the Korea's navel special forces (UDU), and trained in Tukgong Musul. He told me that it was pretty much a full contact style of hapkido. He also learned BJJ so I'm doubting the whole no need for ground work.

    No they put you in positions where your apponent is locked down and you are in a good striking position. ANd no they do not take this assumption into their training. I should be less rash when I speak on here I forget that I am posting towards such distiguished individuals.

    Yes, you should, especially with a SN cobbled from Mortal Kombat.
