    Ad for an ATA school. Seems like something someone did on their home computer. Still, it speaks for itself.

    I wouldn't argue a thing you said about any of the arts I study and so I'm also going to give your opinion quite a bit of credence for the arts I don't. A pissing contest solves nothing, proves nothing and takes up valuable time that could be better spent doing just about anything. Arguing with people over the internet is less productive than jerking off; at least when you finish the latter you've got a little something to show for it.

    I don't claim to be the "real, true" TKD but I will say I'm better than that crap.

    You may have the real TKD -- you might have noticed we get a lot of claiments to THAT -- but as long as you take the art, be used to the idea that 99% of anyone who trains in martial arts with the intent of learning how to hurt people well and quickly is going to AUTOMATICALLY assume you can't fight.

    For instance -- where are you hands when you spar?

    Here is why a karate side kick is better than a TKD side kick.

    It's alright (the verbal beating TKD's taken in this thread, I mean. The amputation was pretty fucked up too, though.) I'm a big boy, I can deal with people flipping me crap. I admit my woeful ignorance about a lot of what goes on outside my particular style (which I don't and never have claimed to be the "one, true style of TKD") and was looking for information about it. One way or another, I've gotten it.

    And the site's given me a chance to find out what all is truly out there. When I woke up this morning I had no idea who Ashida Kim is or such a thing as XMA existed AND that people are willing to pay for it. God help the poor fools who may have tried to learn anything from them and then wander in to here.
