    Sometimes You've Got To Embarrass Yourself

    The following post is crammed full of cliches, but there is truth in them, so so be it. Embarrassment is entirely subjective. I agree that you miss 100% of the shots you don't take, but that doesn't mean you have to be embarrassed if you fail. Most successful people recognise failure is a...

    Very strange TaeKwonDo instructional roundhouse kick

    This thread makes zero sense. It's not a discussion, it's a bunch of people talking past each other. Some of the individual posts are incoherent in themselves. There's nothing to be learned from such exchanges. The kick in the OP video exists. That is a fact. The kick has multiple names...

    You said that is how you hold you arms when sparring. You're wide open. Nothing to do with the kick, just terrible posture. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    And yet, with your arms dangling as they are in your pics, you are ironically wide open to bandal chagi as a counter. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    The fact is as far as Kukki techs are concerned, the Korean term is the correct one. Translations leave room for interpretation. Nothing to do with semantics. Dollyo chagi has several variants, all of which are subsets of dollyo chagi with their own korean names. Sent from my Nexus 6P using...

    There is no half turning kick. It's a variant of dollyo chagi. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    It's a variant of turning kick. He calls it Paldung, the German Taekwondo Union calls it Paltung, the British and Spanish call it Bit Chagi or half turning kick. Different kicks have different names around the world. There's more out there than Youtube. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Very strange TaeKwonDo instructional roundhouse kick

    There's little truth in any of the statements you made there, just so you know. 2006 KKW Taekwondo Textbook differentiates between Dollyo Chagi and Ap Chagi, and goes on to describe variants of each. The kick in the OP video is named Bandal Chagi (Dichotomy kick), and described as a half and...

    @admin I would also point out that the OP has had several accounts on this site and has been banned multiple times. That's why he's blocked out his face in the pic in this thread. The behaviour, attitude and spelling are a giveaway. Laplace_demon, how you doing? Axiom, how are you? Sent...

    Very strange TaeKwonDo instructional roundhouse kick

    More thoughts. The reason it's mostly gone is that for head height kicking the diagonal path of the kick makes it difficult to get it past the opponent's shoulder. It was only ever really a mid section kick. Using it to the head is probably the result of too little ring experience or too little...

    Very strange TaeKwonDo instructional roundhouse kick

    The first kick is sometimes (incorrectly) referred to as Paltung (an incorrect rendering of the korean Bal deung, meaning instep) or Bichagi (diagonal kick). It's a kick that was primarily used for sport purposes in the 80s and 90s. It's now been mostly superseded by the dollyo chagi due to...

    Which bottle is best?

    I think the issue with the question "what is the best X?" is as follows: "Best" is the superlative form of "good". "Good" is a quality assigned to something based on a set of criteria that are subjective. There are questions that need to be answered regarding those criteria before they can...

    What Makes a TKD Pattern/Tul/Form Such?

    Many forms of TKD have fundamental basic exercises similar to Saju. Basic 1 (Kibon IL) and 2 for example. They are called Kihon in Japanese. These exercises are Yeonhap Kibon Dongjak (summarised basic techniques), used as an absolute foundation to the core motions of the art. Some masters even...

    He's said repeatedly that he can handle the guy and that he'll resort to violence if he needs to. And yet is unwilling to take the step to talknto him about it before that has to happen. That's a failure to handle it IMO. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
