why are they wearing mma gloves?
they seem to be just doing fancy things to try to score a hit on the other guy, which ends in them getting hit too, and both guys end up both hitting each other at the same time

So it's like point sparring, but iwth crappy substitute weapons?

Sounds like TKD standards haven't improved much, even if the syllabus has changed.

That would gradually reduce the number of TKD practicioners. I'm all for it.

....

Please let them challenge a FMA school to a weapons match (single baston)

Preferably one that follows something close to DBMA/PTK style sparring.

although Doce Pares/Modern Arnis would work too.

Hilarity would be grand!

The bouncing around and the horrible HORRENDOUS footwork makes baby jesus cry.

2000 years ago TKD warriors were expected to be able to use the swords of the knights they flying side kicked off of horses.

Those kids wear the helmets eveywhere .

I'm really doubting that those helmets are actually for martial arts and not just a next generation form of those "Reterded Child Safety Helmets" and that TKD just happens to attract and incredible number of retarded people (I mean, aside from the already growing evidence pointing in that direction).

Furthermore, this sort of thing is the "New Craze" or fad or whatever of the average Massachusetts McDojo (and pro'lly all of NE if not USA). Those foam swords, knives, spear-things, shields, curved swords, etc in all their neon-colors are a huge hit amongst the various Ke_po, TKD, Krotty and other general Bullshido schools hereabouts.

This video was made so much better by the Casino Incorporated. Amazing Remix of Daft Punk's "Da Funk" I had playing at the time I opened this thread. When it stopped, I started realizing how many dead TKD-in were littering that poor, defenseless mat. I should request that they donate the mat to someone who can use it better...like me.

I vote they get rid of the foam and instead use wooden bokken.

Yes the real swords would reduce their numbers but after the first few died they would quit.

This way with the wood they can still beat the **** out of each other time and again for our amusement.
