In regards to upcoming changes in the way the Kukkiwon implements US promotion, I'd like to present a question for you. If the Kukkiwon were to require the following: -All Kukkiwon instructors teach only the Taegeuk and Kukkiwon Dan forms, and no other patterns (including basics like Kijo-il-bo, palgue, etc.) -All Kukkiwon instructors teach a specific set of Kukkiwon sanctioned one, two, and three-step sparring techniques, as well as a specific set of Kukkiwon sanctioned self-defense techniques -All Kukkiwon instructors begin to adhere to a strict, specific belt system of no more than 8 gups, with a specific color for each gub If the above standards were put in place by the Kukkiwon, assuming that the required techniques are of sound quality, and assuming that the Kukkiwon had an effective method of implementing these standards, would you conform to them? Or rather, would you have nothing more to do with the Kukkiwon? Many of you have been teaching for a very long time, and you have specifics to what you teach. For some your techniques and forms were passed on to you by your masters, and some designed your own. Some of you teach avid competitors, who without Kukkiwon certification could not compete in many tournaments, and could not work towards the Olympics or the Jr. Olympics for Taekwondo.
