    Hay guiz! Jim Wagner + TKD = SAUCESOME!

    I saw "Fight Quest" on netflix where they go into Japan to study Kyokushin karate... and was thinking if there is any TKD tournaments like Knock-Down Karte? DO ANY OF YOU KNOW OF ANY? I'm pretty sick of "point sparring" and the chest protector does give a false sense of security...

    The ITF NK have fairly regular PRO TKD tournements these are full contact and knockdowns score heavily I have been told.

    I got into TKD in the late '70s and I recall talk of, and some clinics in "professional TKD" in the mid-80s or thereabouts. IIRC it was a sort of reaction to pro kickboxing. Nothing much came of it at the time, but maybe others ran with it.

    Olympic Taekwondo is full-contact Taekwondo.

    There are several Taekwondo dojo in Japan that compete in Kyokushin tournaments and train accordingly.

    The ITF NK can go **** itself.

    Not really Taekwondo, but I like to watch world combat league for some good old-style kickboxing type matches
