    And I suspect you'd be drawing a very log bow, too.

    But I'll reserve judgement until you start your Sociocide thread on it.

    This site has impacted my perception of martial arts rather more than I ever thought it would. The following isn't the essence of my martial art as much as it is the essence of my approach to studying any martial art.

    Do not deceive yourself in the capabilities of your art, nor in your own personal abilities. Do this by testing yourself regularly and rigorously.

    No! I don't start until tonight.

    His first response made me laugh. I would like to think it was true...

    From what I know so far, Tae Kwon Do:

    Primarily a sport, a fantastic way to keep fit, and spectacular displays of kicking. Fast and hard punching and kicking. When a master, probably not someone to mess with.

    I don't yet know anything about the philosophy behind Tae Kwon Do. I know a little about its history, and I've borrowed some books from the library to learn more. And if I can I'll quiz my instructor when he has the time.

    TKD: Over-emphasis on kicking, epecially high kicking, your opponent. Lacks good hand work, but can be used quite efficiently in kickboxing if trained correctly.

    Jujitsu- Gentle Art- Maximum effieciency Minimum Energy. Using deceptive strikes, positioning and leverage to throw, lock or hold your opponent.

    Judo- Gentle Way- Redirecting your opponents momentum to throw, lock or hold them.

    Wing Chun Kung Fu- Bridging the gap to deliver reptitive close quarter strikes whilst maintaining contact to ensure control.

    Karate- Use of direct force in attack(striking) and defence(blocking) to incapacitate opponent.

    Tae Kwon Do- The way of hand and foot- Using evasion to deliver kicks and punches to opponent

    Don't know if these are any good just a quick sketch equivalent of each art.
