As far as what IS Tae Kwon Do? I never saw the point in trying to deliniate it from anything. I see the need for that as a way for people to find a school for it. But for myself as a fighter, what I know is what I know and the name for it is largely irrelevant. When I'm sparring I don't have to shift gears and say to myself "Ok, now I'm going to use Tae Kwon Do." I just do what I know.
Addtionally, I've read plenty of other people's view on what is TKD and what is not. What defines TKD and what does. And they are all lacking.

Seriously Mr. Maarten Sebastiaan Franks Spijker, if you don't have more to contribute to this thread than your understandable sinophilia (and that doesn't authorize you to post racist comments about korean, or any other, people) you should refrain from posting.

As for our MSFS, you have no idea about pretty much anything do you. YES TKD did have some respectability in the past. Ask DerAuslander about it. Of course you may not like what he has to say because it's knowledgeable and full of supporting evidence as opposed to skewed racist views.

In my uneducated opinion TKD is a good stepping stone. I learned balance and how to throw a crap load of kicks. But we had light sparring only, I didn't know what it even felt like to use some of the kicks until my brother made me mad. Then, by the way, I broke my foot because I didn't know how hard was too hard to throw the kick for my foot (not being conditioned). It wasn't until I took some other MAs that I sparred hard and got used to the impacts. Then, however, my TKD kicks were awesome.
I have read what you are trying to do with TKD. I think you are on to something, I also think that you have a tough road ahead of you.
By the way, I don't really care where TKD comes from. It makes no difference to me. Korea, China, Australia, whatever.

Actually, it really means zealous and beligerent national pride, or prejudiced devotion to any attitude or cause. (don't spend so much time reading feminist literature)

1. zealous and aggressive patriotism or blind enthusiasm for military glory.
2. biased devotion to any group, attitude, or cause
Damn, I guess I stand corrected. It must have been the summer I spent being brainwashed by a radical feminist militia.
