Ask one to step outside & have at it. Tell him you don't think he could fight his way out of wet paper bag. If you win, you're right. If you get your head taken off, maybe you weren't. You gotta remember that just because it's an Olympic sport, it doesn't mean it they can't hurt you. Boxing is also an Olympic sport, just like Greco-Roman wrestling. Would you try that with one of them?Originally Posted by Littledragon
I personally don't see a lot of SD in TKD anymore. When I studied it back in the 80's & into the 90's (not so much), there was still plenty of good butt stomping. Now though it's a sport. That doesn't mean it can't be applied as a SD mechanism, but it's not the focus of it.
