    That is the main reason they started referring to their style as Korean Karate instead of TKD. TKD moves away from what the founder had traditionally trained in.

    I'd love to see that last match. I'm very curious as to how he lost?

    Won’t happen....lol. Losses we have always learned from the loss, and moved on. Try not to dwell on the negative.

    But for that tourney....Didn’t throw combos and wasnt aggressive.

    Plus add in a much smaller ring than he is used to against an aggressive taller fighter.

    When I saw the opponent it fell into place. Even in the matches he lost, his height and reach meant he could just lean out of the way of most attacks.

    When Jacob is committing to his combos and using angles the size doesn’t bother him.

    But for what ever reason that weekend he was stuck just throwing singles123
