I noticed, like most kool-aid drinkers, hwarang 76 ran off as soon as he was faced with an overwhelming amount of evidence that contradicted his beliefs.
He did not run off. Either the drink's effect came into play and he is unable to respond (incapacitation, death, etc.) OR he had an sucessfull intervention and no longer belief the stuff and does TKD for chicks.

DerAuslander108 = T3h Real Deal, so I am in no way arguing with him or attempting to contradict him. HOWEVER, I am still confused by this "TKD doesn't actually have that many kicks." If TKD doesn't have that many kicks, then what art does have a lot of kicks? Cause I can count 6 basic kicks. Each of those has a half dozen or so variations and pretty much cover every angle and configuration that you can throw a kick from. That doesn't even count silly kicks like Twist kicks that are kind of front kick/round kick variations. Hmmm... Savate does a lot of kicking, how many kicks do they have? I think I'm just confused by what counts as a "lot" of kicks.

Any art that is not Hwarang Do has fewer kicks. Hope that clears things up for you.
Ahhhh. Now I understand completely. Well in that case I offer this stinging rebutal.
TKD >> HWD! We have the mostest kix0rs!
The main TKD kicks are basically variations of the basic karate kicks; side, front, and round. Add on to that hooks. Everything else is just a variation on a theme, or seldom used, such as crescents, etc. If you look at the kicks found in the tuls/poomse/hyung...TKD has a smaller syllabus of kicks compared to Hwa Rang Do, Hapgido, or Guksul.
That would be true.

Edit: Wow, according to this page, http://www.atlantamartialarts.com/styles/hwarangdo.htm ,hwarangdo has 365 individual kicks. Even if I do Front Leg, Back Leg, Jump front leg, jump back leg, jump reverse front and back, jump spin front and back, I'm still hard pressed to come up with more than 50 kicks, even If I dump Twist kick in there I only end up with 54 kicks, and if you can do a jump spin Twist kick and not break your knee you've got one up on me....
