    Will you pay for the international flight, accommodation and spending money?

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

    However, since patterns are not intended to be "Tied to Sparring" to any great extent, why does it even matter. For the Chang Hon System the cycle contains 5 elements of which Sparring and Patterns are each one of the 5.

    Frankly, if all someone wants to do is hone sparring skills there is little point in pursuing a traditional martial art syllabus in it's entirety.

    Your point misses the bigger picture. A standard system is needed in order to teach things on a large scale so people can fit in anywhere in the world. It might be wildly presumptive of me, but I assume there is no widely taught International system where everyone agrees that everything it contains is the optimal way of doing things. However, as I have met and spoken with numerous ITF Seniors the overallconsensus is that Uniformity in the system is more imortant than unanimity when it comes to everyone agreeing on everything. Now, for those, including myself who find some things to be less than optimal, I teach the "Standard" either as dictated by general Choi or refined by lter Senior directors, but I also explain my opinion. That way my students can and do fit in anywhere using the system, and students from elsewhere can and do can fit in easily at my gym.

    Maybe he might transform (Laplace transform) into someone with a bit of humility someday? :)

    I can only speak on what my late GM, who was along with his brothers a direct student of Hwang Kee, told me. He said that before the Korean war they practiced many movements that were from Chinese martial arts. After he and his surviving family ended up in south Korea, he joined with Choi , Hong Hi. He said after that it was like karate but with more kicks. He also said that the Kwan heads did not like the name Tang Soo Do due to the obvious reference of Chinese influence.123
