    I did TKD for years both in the U.S. and Korea. Where does the "TKDers stand sideways when they fight " idea come from? I only stood sideways when I was looking to throw a very specific technique and even then it would be in a counter attack setting, not as an attacking stance.

    My standard TKD stance was somewhere between a sideways stance and Muay Thai stance. That stance afforded me more punching power, (but not as much as a boxer or MT boxer) and allowed me to throw a wider variety of kicks than a side stance normally would. Then again my round house kick does suck donkey balls, so the stance I used at the time might have been an adjustment that I made myself to compensate for some shitty flexibility.
    Or I could just be strange, that's probably it.

    Yes it was, but a year into TKD I started cross training american kickboxing, so that could have something to do with it. I know that is why to this day I don't drop hands below my chin. During my TKD training I never had anyone tell me my stance was wrong, and don't recall seeing too many other practioners standing sideways except when they were specifically looking to throw a lead leg technique.

    This DerAuslander Post Has Got To Be The Best Post in This Thread

    Thus, while this is TKD Sucks Month, and Buddha knows I love a good TKD joke more than most of you non-TKDers...

    It is also an opportunity to logically and critically address what the problems are with TKD...and discuss what can be done about it, without nutriding and all the "HUR-HUR KEEP YOUR HANDS UP N00B" talk.

    BFGilbraith has made some good points, I will give him that. I concur, TKDers need to get back in touch with their karate roots.(emphasis added)

    After all, Kyokushin = T3h r34l K0r34n k4r4t3.
    I'm not sure if I'd agree that Kyokushin is Korean Karate, even though Mas is Korean, since its based in Japan. I do agree with you that there are a lot of us that do TKD, especially those of us who've been doing it before Oly style became the mainstream and strip mall McDojangs became the norm (don't even get me started on ATA and musical forms :qright2: ), that don't like Kukki sport style TKD and are pretty disgusted by the commercialization of TKD. I don't think the problems in TKD are unique to TKD, there are plenty of belt factories in other styles out there, but the commercial success of TKD without any real quality control has made TKD the biggest offender.
