    Ok, thanks for the clarification. With all the talk of pink fans, I thought it was some really centred weapon art... sort of iaido... for strippers:toothy5:.

    KSWolf, while you have mentioned the Hapkido connection, you're completely leaving out the Korean Kung Fu connection.

    Yeah, I suppose I am. I should mention that some of the differences between kuk sool won and hapkido fall into that category. Kuk Sa Nim is supposed to be a Sippalgi master as well which would explain some of our fluid motions and soft forms. We also learn a number of animal based movements (specifically based on mantis, crane, eagle, tiger, dragon and bear, I don't think I missed any there).

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    All I can say is it was still early in the UFC (8 I believe) so since some guys wore gis/doboks I guess he thought it necessary.

    The fan was a traditional Confucian martial art weapon in Korea, likely due to Chinese influence. It was something everyone carried if you were a yangbang (noble), and it was easy to modify. Steel ribs instead of wood, sharped points to the ribs, all could make it a cutting weapon when opened. Folded up, it was a convenient truncheon.

    In a country where everyone around you was carrying one, it was easy for you to carry a "weaponized" fan without anyone noticing. This was important not only for the obvious reasons, but also because many martial artists were looked down on in the Yi Dynasty.

    And pink doesn't really have the gay connotations in Korean culture as it does here...

    Something I had to explain to my gf everytime she bought me new clothes...
    Come on. Just admit it Der. Admit that this is all fancy bS history u made up to cover up fact that u wears pink. Blame the gf, twist national history of Korea to cover it up! Just so u can justify wearing pink dobok at ure local TKD dojang.

    Pink is gay anywhere in the world!

    On serious note. I thought that the fluffy pink fans (ones KSW use) were mainly used by gi seng (historically) and yangban class had the normal thinner and white color fans. And metal framed fans used as weapon were more similiar to iron fans used in chinese kung fu and not the fluffy pink ones like gi seng used to use. Since male/female yangban or even female bodyguard cohorts walking around with fluffy pink fan would raise attention rather than more of black iron fan type.

    i'm only joking mate, i was just throwing a sarky comment in. i can see how he would have thought that.

    bet there were pure kids gutted tho when they went to take up KSW to learn how to lock someone up and smash their heads open with elbows, and the instructor starts pulling out big pink fans...
