    Anybody read the book A killing Art

    As a former TKD practioneer , I just finished reading the book about TKD by Alex Gillis .
    If this has been discussed before my apologies , but anyway it is a eye opening book.
    It talks about the beginnings of TKD which the author claims is roughly a little over 50 years rather than the 2000 year old martial art propaganda of the WTF. And how the art was at first a killing art combat tested in the korean war and now is no longer a martial art but a sport .
    The book also talks about General Hi's dalliance with North Korea and the WTF bribing olympic officials to gain admittance in the olympics .Also discussed the WTF vs the ITF .
    IMHO it is a good read if you are interested in TKD or Martial Arts in general , anybody elses opinion
    Move along citizen ,nothing to see here !!!!!

    Read the book. Was amazed that all the stuff I heard about in the 1970's that I thought was fabricated or exagerated vis a vis government influence was not only true but more and worse than I heard about.

    As an American, I think it is hard to identify with or understand not only the culture, but also governments and political systems that experience things like military coups and radical changes.

    Saw at least one small glitch and sent the author a note about it. Also saw how he percieved certain things and how some things may have been percieved or mispercieved. Have now given the book to a Korean man I know for review and his thoughts since he was around the TKD scene since the early 1960's back in Korea and in the USA.

    So..basically the book is "Hurr lolz TKD ain't a art its sport lolz!!1"?

    Yeah I think I'll pass. Though one thing I read did leave me a little bewildered.

    The Olympic style is a sport and encourages a light-contact approach that focuses on winning points
    Uh....I don't know what TKD fighters he's seen but sparring is anything but light contact. Otherwise you wouldn't get knock outs, broken and fractured limbs and other such injuries.

    Yeah, I always laugh when people say TKD is light contact.

    Thank you, I'll take my multiple broken ribs, fractured jaw, retrograde concussion and brain damage back, thank you very much.

    Yes. I am proof that TKD causes brain damage, much like Wing Chun.
