    true- but I do consider my own style what Taekwondo really is. Each to their own though.

    This is why I commented before about the politics. There should not be such a diverse range of 'styles' for Chang Hon. It should be standardised. I referee at open style events and I cannot help but prefer the look of those who practice my style of pattern. This is why the referees on each area are a mixture of associations. But this is far form a perfect situation.

    What is the answer? Nothing that will happen. If all the associations unite and agree on one syllabus. I can't see all those powerful GMs giving up their positions though to do this!!!

    It’s only my opinion and there are too many individual components to mention but quite simply this is performed in a style that I don’t consider ITF.

    From incorrect stance lengths to bad foot positioning (L Stance- toes pointing in wrong direction) to bent wrists on certain techniques. I would pick my black belts up on these.

    For TAGB this may be perfectly acceptable but if some asks me how this holds up as an ITF style Chang Hon pattern, I would honestly say it needs work.

    Now that's about as awful I've ever seen a simple forward direction punch

    This lady has much better form.

    Quite simply it is wrong. A TKD black belt goes round the waist only once to signify one grandmaster, one Taekwondo and to win the fight I one victorious blow.

    It should certainly not hang so low. It is too long.

    I strongly disagree that his performance was awful. He has perfect foot control, nice fly kick. His main weakness is the roundhouse kick.

    It's supposed to be tied double in most organizations if it's that long. In Karate there's usually a double tie, in TKD usually a single.

    As I get older pattern work has become my mainstay. I love patterns. I also love competition and still compete now after 25 years of martial arts. Proficiency in any art is a combination of all components within the syllabus. Sparring and competition will give a good indication of ability to fight when compared with a grading which is more a recap of what is required for a certain belt.

    TAGB is accepted by neither ITF or WT yet is biggest in the UK than any other association.

    I prefer sine wave which TAGB don’t prioritise but each to their own.
    I prefer knee spring over sign wave. SW is too exaggerated and soft for my liking.
