    Clearly - Again, you misunderstand. Try again. Volume 3 contains Hand techniques. Attack principles are the first General section followed by other sections such as Punching, striking etc. There is no separate section in any volume specifying different methodology for attack techniques or Lunching techniques in patterns.

    The head of the KKW used to be the head of the WTF. He is talking about them.

    What you said at post 408 was:
    "General Choi at one point reportedly did a 180 and claimed that Karate is a Taekkyon derivative." I asked for your source and you state "A Killing Art" My review indicates the book not only did not support your statement of what General Choi allegedly claimed, but indicates why he would not say that at the referenced page.

    There is a chapter describing how Chois claims got more and more outrageous, and that is where that can be found. I don't have the urge to read through the hole book again but It's somewhere chapter 1-5

    Respect is a budo philosophy tied tot he traditional martial arts. Every single person I've ever encountered espousing it fell short of it. General Choi's statements in that press conference about the KKW/WTF is cringeworthy.

    To my knowledge it has never been the same person.

    Sir, 'respect' is a base principle in every vein of philosophy I have ever read. It is not exclusive.

    I believe it has but anyway, you know WTF is a term used to describe the KKW, since that is their sport.

    Belts are useful for competition. Helps pair folks up with others at roughly the same level of skill and training. Not just about making a buck.

    "Novice" is one of those words that can be used as an absolute term or a relative term. Someone may actually be brand new to a position, and so clearly a novice. Someone may also be new or inexperienced relative to someone else, and be considered a novice. So a white belt is a novice in the absolute sense of the word. But a black belt may also be novice relative to a much more experienced practitioner.

    I heard in Sweden, the city government pays your dues out of general revenue tax dollars.

    ...

    Just kidding, but the idea of paying 6 months at a time is only an indication of a McDojo if the idea is to lock you into a 6 month contract while simultaneously counting on you quitting after a month or two.

    As an aside... are you in Sweden? Neat.

    Somewhere along the way, someone said a punch can also be a block and vice versa (a block can also be a punch). That might have been in the WC sub forum, though.

    Okay. So, I've read the entire thread, and I will admit I can't tell if @Acronym dislikes Gen. Choi, likes Gen. Choi, is trying to discredit Gen. Choi, or is actually trying to discredit TKD. Outside of some really inappropriate and sexist comments, though, it was a wild ride.

    WTF has not existed for some time now.

    And can serve that same purpose in classes, especially where rank indicates what portion of the curriculum has been learned.

    Sir, so, support for your claim your claim is your belief that somewhere in some book someone said that someone said something. Got it.

    Further the discussion has to do with him allegedly changing his mind or doing a "180" had nothing to do with his thoughts on KKW but was a discussion of how he wants technique performed. Are you deliberately trying to change the discussion?123
