    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Somewhat familiar with TAGB as it's pretty big in UK; definately McDojo by my standards. I still have some TAGB trousers somewhere, back when they wre white Gis with red "TAGB" on the leg. Can anyone more familiar with their recent crap tell me f they all wear black doboks now or just the blackbelts?
    Great quote of TAGB site:

    "Tae Kwon Do is a martial art developed over 20 centuries ago in Korea. The earliest records of its practice date back to 50BC where tomb paintings show men in fighting stances practising forms known as Taek Kyon."

    As for PUMA, looks 110% McDojo and is TKD afterall.

    It makes me sad, remembering the day I sat at a Krotty High Mucky Muck Judge's table and passed an 8 year old black belt... I think he's second degree by now (And he'd just be breaking 10-11 I think).

    I keep washing and washing... but my hands... they just won't come clean!!!

    Passed as in: Kata okay? Second Kata Okay? Third Kata Okay? Bukens (Err... "Kumite" or "Really Really Short Kata") good? Okay, can he do a few GRAB MY WRIST escapes? Finally can he block and attack another kid doing the "Step in Karate Lunge Punch" for about 2-3 minutes while doing whatever comes to his mind (To show REAL FIGHT STRESS situation).

    And finally..... did Shihan think he passed?????????

    That's what passed means.

    Quote from Puma Website:

    Originating in Korea, around two thousand years ago, Tang Soo-Do is one of the oldest martial art systems. Today, its techniques and philosophy are still taught as they were taught in ancient times.

    That was presumably BEFORE the Japanese occupation of Korea, naturally.

    Jokes are never as funny after you've had to explain them. Not that my jokes are funny anyways.

    There are plenty of threads which discuss this claim. These guys aren't the only ones to make this claim. No I don't believe it either.

    Are you a member of PUMA posting to defend PUMA?

    Does the fact that many people make bullshit claims make it ok?



    But more specifically, this claim is slightly worse even than most other "2000 years old TKD" quotes because it a) says Tang Soo Do not TKD and b) says it is taught as it was 2000 years ago.


    :bully:
