This I would agree with you on, though I also will say that this is true of most fight sports. I will give you that and retract the sweeping generalization statement. Though I still stand by my comment that that is not the general perception amongst either group, though that perception does exist, and that the bolded part is style bashing. If you or others do not feel that it is, then fine; I'm not interested in pressing the issue further. So far as I have seen (and I have seen this opinion expressed by far to many others both on and off the web for to be just me), the non MA world's perception is that white pajamas = karate/judo/taekwondo and that the guy with the black belt knows what he's doing. The non MA world doesn't scrutinize taekwondo on enough of a technical level to either differentiate it from karate or to have an opinion of how SD worthy or aesthetically pleasing it may or may not be. Most in the non MA world view MA as an activity for kids, teens, and young adults and do not have enough interest in it to care how SD worthy it is or what it looks like. As for the opinion of how SD worthy it is within the MA world, I think that it is more balanced than you are characterizing it. Most in the MA world know that each art has its nuances and peculiarities that make more sense to people who practice that particular art. I also think that most of those who post negatively about KKW taekwondo specifically or taekwondo in general represent a very vocal minority.
