    I didn't realise there was any confusion to start with.

    been crosstraining taekkyeon for a few months now, kyulyun and traditional style.

    some differences ive noticed is that taekkyeon uses a lot of low kicks with the ball of the foot or the heel to strike at legs and knees. it doesnt chamber kicks the way TKD does. in addition to leg sweeps and trips, mid to high

    level kicks are thrown from what i find to be very odd and unorthodox angles with a dance like vibe to it rather than an "aggressive"

    vibe that a TKD or HKD kick would be executed.
