    Your new to the site, so we will be easy on you. It's a sarcastic questions. On this site we deal with reality. A martial art is about fighting so how can you fight with out fighting. Ah, one of Bruce Lee's riddles. Way with no-way, etc..........

    They don't spar, far's I know. That's the most remarkable thing about it. Oh, and they also don't extend their legs fully when kicking, ever. Grandmaster Choi was brought up in TKD and nearly ruined his knees kicking to extension, so he removed the leg extension entirely.

    That's what I've been told by Choiers.

    I've been lurking for a long while so flame away...


    I am fully aware how pointless no contact 'fighting' is though. Which is why I do Thai Boxing.

    There's some value in that. My little brother was in TKD with me for years and his knees are messed up so bad now that he pretty much only boxes. He's working on rebuilding them some so he can start throwing some low kicks and get into some more MT style stuff. But TKD round kicks and things like that he can't pull off any more. I managed to escape the knee damage because my favorite kick was the side kick, so I threw way fewer round kicks than he did.

    Well "no-contact fighting" is not "fighting". It's LARPing. You did well by switching to Muay Thai.

    If by Choi we mean General Choi Hong Hi, I doubt the guy who invented a majority of Taekwondo would do 180 like that, especially since he promoted TKD like nobody's business until the day he died.

    But overextension can and will **** up your knees. Although in real sparring/fighting or even target training the full extension (except on straight-in kicks like side kicks) is often stopped anyway. Your hip is what provides most of the power. The extension just happens looks very nice and helps significantly with breaking.

    No, the Choi being referred to here is Kwang Jo Choi who invented Choi Kwang Do and named it after himself.

    It hasnt. It says that CKD is a no-contact, no sparring art. They arent trying to train people to fight. They teach them non violent solutions.
