    I think Grandmaster Cho has done an amazing job of proving that false. If you're ever in Pittsburgh, go train with Master Ameris. The dojang is well-equipped and has a huge, family-like atmosphere. I always enjoyed training there.

    I concur. But then again, it's always easier to take the path least resistance, when it comes to hard, realistic training (Anyone up for being punched, or would you rather pretend to do so?). If only there were more people in the world that would take a similar path to Master Hee Il Cho, we would all be better off.

    I got an idea.

    How about, instead of moaning about how few teachers there are taking Grandmaster's Cho's path...

    YOU DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

    Get in there and fight.

    I shall as soon as I get school done. Should be no more then a month or so, and I'll be back in action (in judo most likely, but I'll be training hard and testing my skills). I am glad you are so concerned about my contribution to the martial arts community.

    Kisses,

    Hee Il Cho pretty much was TKD for me for my first couple of years. I didn't really know who General Choi was, but I had (and still have) Cho's books. I poured over the images for days and took to heart his writing. I consider myself extremely lucky to have had a teacher that did the same.

    When I did TKD years ago, we got some of his hyung tapes.
    Lot's of power and he didn't bounce around.....that is, he kept his head level and all the techniques were crisp and LOUD!

    Fast forward to 2009 when I watch Won Hyo hyung being done by somebody who is bouncing up and down.

    To sum up my thoughts, GM Cho is the real deal and martial artists of any art should pick up his material.

    Mr. Cho is a talented and inspiring martial artist. I'm glad you chose to honor him.

    Watching Master Cho do bag work and teach should become a requirement for all TKD instructors in the U.S. Then maybe the overall state of TKD could start to turn around.

    Der, I have a question. Since Master Cho is a TKD proponent, although what he teaches actually works, does he still emphasize using the instep of the foot when throwing roundhouse kicks?

    Whoa whoa whoa... I actually have to get up off my chair? All that "do something" **** sounds like a lot of work. Can I just talk about aliveness and how much other people suck online instead? I mean, that's enough to get respek right?

    Man of Contrasts is one of the few Korean MA books still in my library. Most others on the subject were given to people years ago.

    Good writeup on an amazing man.
