    You're both wrong and right. There was a plethora of shitty JJJ in the 80's that is not what JJJ was about. Everything in Judo came from JJJ.
    And Aikido is basically watered down Japanese jujitsu.
    Shittily trained JJJ. Just like I said.

    And I'm a red belt in ITF. The transition to WAKO Kickboxing rules is pretty smooth, as many ITF guys have shown.

    Not true. The Karate bashing is not nearly as bad as against TKD. Now, I know plenty of TKD schools lack quality control but at the end of the day, kicking and punching can never be ineffective. My TKD school does NOT waste time on the flashy stuff at all. Is TKD the most effective? Hell no! But traditional Karate is just as bad.

    I was worried, for a sec, that he wouldn't take the bait, and we'd have to lament Omega's transition to affability. Go get 'em, Omega!

    I want you think about what you just said then ridgehand yourself in the throat for your crimes against reality and logic.

    I am glad you haz teh re4l TKD. It is always refreshing to see such shining examples of Martial Excellency, this is of course dependant on a link to this awesome sauce barebones no nonsense TKD school. Preferably one with a gallery and some video.

    Wasting time on flashy stuff might not be common in your dojang but its very common in tkd. Definitely more so than karate in general. Lame strip mall daycare karate gets plenty of **** around here.

    You can disagree all you want, you're still wrong.

    Now that I'm done teaching for the night let me take the time to properly answer your dumbfuck of an answer. Seriously dude, your school may train a certain way (good for you if that's true) but that is not representative of all Taekwondo, let alone ITF Taekwondo. Are you seriously going to compare your red belt to my 2nd dan blackbelt? How stupid is that? I'm also a former professional kickboxer and currently own a mma gym that trains active fighters. How arrogant can you be?

    If you want to open up a discussion then do it in constructive way, don't come in here thinking that you know what you're talking about. If you would have come in qualifying your remarks as something like

    "My ITF style school uses kickboxing rules for sparring and we do fairly hard sparring, with focus mitt drills and not a lot of emphasis on forms..."

    Wow, a Japanese ITF champion. Those Japans sure do dominate the ITF free fighting competitions... NOT.
