    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    any Kyullyun Taekkyon practitioners out there?

    just wondering... Taekkyon is such a minor style...

    haven't seen many people training it

    If you mean the style of 도기현's group, I did it for awhile, though I was with a KTA school.

    2002-ish in Seoul. I'd been going to the KTA Kwanak-Gu gym for several years. I wanted to try out 계텍, so I went to the school near 대학로 (now closed, I think) for a while.

    Perhaps you could educate the ignorant public on the differences between your branch of Taegyun and the others.

    To me the most notable differences are the lack of waist movement during stepping (emphasized in the KTA) and full contact kicks to the legs being allowed.

    In practice, I didn't really notice much difference. Mainly low roundhouse kicks attacking the thighs, which never happens in regular KTA comps.
