    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I'm just citing what footage I've seen of TKD where they allow punches to the head. Please prove me wrong.

    Afraid I can't...

    but if *good* punching was emphasized, (and since it's going to be the Olympics, I'm hoping that this would be necessary) I think that it can improve the mediocre punching displayed in the ITF.

    they will probably have the same rules...... i mean the wtf has already modified the rules recently and is probably not going to change again for a long while....... they changed round times, scoring, rings, and other things to match the itf a little more... but i dont think they're going to change all that much.

    This wont happen. Sometimes when North and South Korea have negotiations Taekwondo is brought up as a subject, not because it's important but as a smokescreen or timeout between what really matters.

    I'll believe it when i see it.
