    Really shows the similarity of old TKD to our Karate heritage, IMO

    Yea the short pants and the longer stances, the way that they did a kick. I know you know but what did youexpect TKD came from Karate so in the beginning all they did was do what they knew.

    I recognize a few of the people in the videos as being in GM Hwang Kee's TSD Vol. 1. Saw GM J J Kim, but he is the only one I can put a name to. Anyone know who any of the others are?

    Great video. I've seen te other ones before but this was a new one for me. I love seeing footage from back in the day with the various Kwans. Wish more of it was available.

    Chris, that's the video GM Jae Joon Kim made. You'll notice GM Kim leading the class and the young GM HC Hwang leading basics.
