    I mean they don't use used X-ray paper. It's a blank plastic sheet, it doesn't have someone's broken arm on it lol.

    The ones we used back in the 80's were used. No identifying marks of course but I do remember seeing so gruesome breaks.

    Why not? What’s the difference? Used ones are free.

    I think X-ray film is going to be more scarce. Most are on CD now. Actually, most are emailed nowadays. You have to request physical copies.

    AND would be demonstrating the devastating effectiveness of the technique!

    Best if you (the holder) can develop some good sleight-of-hand, replacing a clean (unbroken) x-ray with a broken one when they hit well.

    I would be very interested to know what the rule sets were for the Korean National Championships in the mid 60s. All I know is that they were full contact and without body armor.

    The first World TKD championship was held in Seoul, South Korea in 1973. What sport are you referring to?

    A world championship is not the same as a national championship

    Sure, most people studying more traditional TKD have heard of him. I got to meet and work out with him in Chicago 1986 or 87. Still do not see what he has to do with a TSD championship?
    There is no reference on search engines to a Korean national championship until 1973. That said, I would think the individual styles were holding competitions to that effect.

    There were official TaeKwondo championships prior to 1973:

    1962 Won the First Korean Tae Kwon Do Championships in Sparring and Pattern in Won Joo city, in Korea. This was the World First Tae Kwon Do Championship. Selected as a member of the First Korean Army Representative Team.

    No I did not, it was a Tae Soo Do competition

    Tae Soo Do is a name that has been used over the years by both the Taekwondo and the Hwa Rang Do communities

    I was mistaken before I checked the source:

    Grand Master C.K. Choi | Tae kwon Do Pioneers

    1963 Won the First Korean Tae Soo Do [Tae Kwon Do, Tang Soo Do, Kong Soo Do] Full Contact Heavyweight Championship in 3rd, 4th,5th Degree Black Belt Division. Won the Korean Tae Soo Do Representative Full Contact Heavyweight Championship

    I would have loved to have met him. My TKD instructor, Billy Blanks, trained under him to 7th Dan. Billy told some great stories of him. When someone asked about him Billy would whistle and smile, saying “Man, you should see him fight”
