    It can be with the right training methodology and a realistic view of its limitations.

    Please see my above answer.

    Actually, according to the noted martial historian, the late Donn Draeger (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donn_Draeger) to be termed a 'martial art' at all it had to fit a certain criteria. This was that it has to of been taught to an active military force for use on a battle field - of which TKD covers both! 1) Taught to Korean military 2) used in Vietnam

    But is it an effective fighting system? According to the Vietcon... most certainly! According to the guy that just used to to defend himself.. again most certainly! According to the watching the guy who watch the kid who trained at the McDojang and refused or didnt reckonise it until its to late and got beaten up.. then no!

    I agree with oldman, but taekwondo's deep rooted (ATA) Mcdojoism means that many students don't have the right training methodology and that is taekwondo's major challenge for the future.

    And thanks

    Ah! But that doesnt answer the question "Is Taekwondo an effective system of Fighting", it just adds another in the form of "Is the Taekwondo as taught by the ATA an effective system of Fighting"?

    They say taekwondo and karate are somewhat identical because of the japanese occupation in korea but the biggest difference is that karate is 60% hand techniques and 40% legs while taekwondo is 60% legs and 40% hand techniques. I train in both of them but i am not as good with my legs as my hands are better

    That's maybe a tiny bit simplistic. Teeny, tiny bit.
