    Which years did you train ITF TaeKwonDo?

    It was full contact back here (Nationals competitions only, world events always semi contact)

          The movie felt like a live action anime in tone and direction. Still I enjoyed it.

            Well, I mean, Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story featured a battle against a demon-- but I guess that was supposed to be a metaphor...

            Still, Fighter in the Wind remains more historically accurate than Bloodsport.

              Star Wars episode one a phantom menace is more histotically accurate than bloodsport.

                Smashing out a quick necro here but...

                ....SICK TO DEATH of the state of UK politics in ITF Taekwon-Do at the moment! As an ITF TKD practitioner of nearly 24 years I've never seen our art so riddled with such a clusterfuck of power hungry muppets, nasty concoctions of non-seamless processes and association structures and I think you get the picture.

                Anyone...?

                    ITF roundhouse in tight jeans is possible..

                    . If you want pain in your hips.. (everything is working against you)

                        Oh yes I have been on the recieving end of favouritism. I was promised a red belt testing a year earlier than I got it, with a dude who started
                        training the same year I did.

                        The plan was to do it together. Instructor went behind my back and graded him but never contacted me. That guy is a black belt now and I'm still red and we've trained exact same amount of time.

                          And that dude did favors for the instructor.. They got to know each other in the gym so I'm fine with that but don't tell me something and then go behind my back.

                          . Suddenly he shows up with a red belt.... Instructor doesn't say a word about why I wasn't there as if he completely forgot the original plan.

                              How do you weigh forms vs sparring ability? It's hard to argue against someone who can hang with black belts (assuming he doesn't just brawl) simply because his form is less good.

                                Also, how big that TAGB off-shoot? Do they outnumber ITFs in your country?
