You met the founder? Or are you talking about a guy who started training in CKD?

That's what I thought!

Have you received a reply YET?????
The only openmindness that is permitted is from the hq guys if it brings THEM $$$. Otherwise, CKD is about as openminded as a Jehovah's Witness with a leaflet in his/her hand! Sorry to tell you this, but TKD, taught by truly qualified instructors emphasizes sequential motion - it's just that my Korean masters don't seem to know that particular term. I guess that's why Kwang Choi has gotten away with making it sound so exotic and specific to CKD - he probably didn't know the term either until some English speaking person told him. The old TKD that he did (and yo - there are legitimate TKD masters who are his age and know him who say he never achieved the rank or status he claims) IS stiff - but because he has had to keep up the hype about TKD being so terrible he has neglected to see the significant changes that the WTF made long ago and continue to make in order to improve the art of TKD. Well, maybe he did see them, but the majority of the people who do CKD and are "true believers" tend to be absolutely clueless about other martial arts - and CKD has to perpetuate the lies in order to keep them that way. I know. I left at 3rd degree CKD bbelt. I have to say that my first few TKD classes enraged me because I felt lied to and duped.
Dear Lord, look what I found on YouTube... a seven-year-old Choi Kwang Do student's black belt test.
Seven years old. Black belt. Choi Kwang Do. Yeah...
Look around YouTube and Google Video for more CKD-related videos. I may re-post this in the video section later, but I thought I should post it here first.
Edit: Here's a broadcast news piece on Choi Kwang Do which features Master Choi himself:

Here's some more Choi Kwang Do video amusement...
News story on a Choi Kwang Do seminar:
A true CKD master at work:
The 7 year old blonde kid is very amusing - I loved the way he swaggers off screen at the end of his BB test.
Why is it ALL in slow motion though?
Does it make their techniques look any better - NO!
some of the bestest dry land swimming I has evers scene !!!one!11!!
Seriously ... how can anyone approve of the content of those vids ? They are clearly delusional and create a danger to the public (themselves) .
The two vids I watched weren't in slow mo ... how about that for scary . Either you mistook their no contact full speed techniques as being in slow motion or you need to run some anti-spyware .
