      Teaching, Hell, I was almost beating my master after two years. In Tae Kwon Do sparring that is.

      TKD isn't hard to learn...Once you get 5 or 6 kicks down pact, you just practice them over...and over...and over...and...You get the idea. Each one has a different application in TKD sparring. When you learn how to use all the kicks at the correct time with speed, you become good at TKD sparring. That's pretty much all there is too it. Stupid ass rules.

        1. never use cresent kicks, those are a joke.
        2. don't do stand up axe kicks (i can though, it's funny) on another standing opponent (unless your opponent is an idiot)
        3. WTF is the best acronym

          This may be useless, but...I have trained in Judo, boxing, Goju Ryu and hold my black belt in TKS. The most important aspect of any school is the instructors. Will they expand the style? I also had the opportunity to train with a Thai boxer at the Goju dojo. That knee block is great, after the block.. kick straight out.

              No problems here, and my crescent kicks are self-taught. But then, I'm naturally flexible.

                1. I do WTF TKD.
                2. I have no illusions that I am doing a sport.
                3. If I want to learn self-defense, I'll learn to shoot a gun.

                  Nah..I do cresent kick just fine and love to knock the crap outta ppl with them, hehe. I only used it once in self defense though, in the rare moments where I got the chance to hit high and the guy was a crappy fighter anyway. Crack the nose good

                  TKD has some defensive properties but it depends on who is teaching you and YOU. How much are you gonna read on it, practice it and cut the BS and get to the core of it. TKD has low kicks and it has some nasty things in it to. The whole sport thing really fucked it though. Rather sad, but hey, that's life. The self defense things is up top you though...TKD can be a decent base and a quick strong pairof legs is always useful, just as long as one remembers that they must crosstrian if they want to be complete.

                      The problem with a lot of the TKD people, and yes I'm a TKD person, is that they think that their art is the end all. There has to be a combination of other arts, I train in Muay Thai as well and roll around with some of te guys at the studio. TKD is a good long range art, but TKD kicks are pointless when a person is in close. There are positive points to TKD, but no art is perfect.

                        I'm with Os on that one. I do WTF style also, but as of late, I've been getting into Muay Thai and JKD also, so I'm not paying too much attention to my TKD anymore. I still do practice maybe once or twice a week though, but only basic stuff - nothing fancy.

                          You're absolutely right. And because the effective techniques of TKD are rarely taught a large number of students within the TKD community, and are taught in an increasingly sparse amount of schools, it's not only creating the conception that the art is ineffective due to it's sport nature, but is also proving so to be true because the effective side of the art is not being taught to a larger portion of TKD students.

                              Indeed. A crucial raason, IMO, for any TKD student to cross train with several different MAs.

                                i agree. my instructor not only trains but encourages training in jiujitsu that is taught at his school. i guess that's not surprising since the jj instructor is an old TKD student of his ;).
                                though i must say, it's a bit odd seeing your teacher wearing a white belt :).
