    Incorporating Ground Fighting in TKD

    It has been apparent to me for some time now that there is a lack of application for ground fighting techniques in TKD.

    Of course this is known to all. The question however is this, how should one attempt to involve ground fighting tech's in TKD but still keep it TKD.

    The founder of our system is truly anti-MMA and for good reason, traditionalism to the art as it was taught to him as he teach's it to us

    And please, I do not want to hear that I am nutridding, as it's been put in previous post, of our peoples good intentions and so forth.

    SeJong is true to word, period

    What I would like to read in response to this thread is serious advice from practioners of TKD and those with groung fighting expertise

    Why don't you cross train in judo or something, theres already so many problems that TKD as a whole must address before we dare attempt to incorporate ground fighting into TKD.

    To incorperate a ground fighting curriculum into TKD would be quite difficult because we would have to do something unique that makes our ground fighting system different from lets say BJJ for an example. Personally to learn ground fighting i would go to a BJJ or Judo school but that is me.

    And remeber "Tradition, without intelligence is not worth having"

    ...in addition to everything else wrong with it?

    Seriously, what are you even asking? What do you want us to tell you? I mean, ask me about groundfighting all you want. I could teach you escapes, reversals, proper positioning, posture, grips, hip movement, takedowns, takedown defense, how to properly stand up, whatever you want. But it's not going to be TKD. TKD never had these things and, unless people like your instructor pull their heads out of collective jingoistic asses, it never will.

    Of course, you have your options. What you COULD do is watch a couple random BJJ tapes, nod solemnly, then play grabass with an equally clueless friend (maybe your instructor??? I'll bet he knows LOADS of groundfighting!) until, after an exhausting half hour of exchanging headlocks, determine that you've "integrated TKD principles into grappling", and never train in it again.

    Or you could go to a BJJ school. Or a Judo school. Or a wrestling school. And you could receive competent, consistant, quality instruction and ****-all to irrational dogma and ****-all to what your instructor thinks because it's your own damn training, not his.

    Either way I'll still love you.

    TKD is a striking art. As a fighter you have to decide what you want to have training in and go for it. Trying to add it into an established curriculum is not something that would happen with any type of efficiency. The only thing that I could see coming back to TKD are sweeps and takedowns.

    so, after we incorporate ground fighting into tkd, can we incorporate it into nascar? cause they're TOTALLY lacking in submission defense.
