    Where Does Taekwondo End, and Gymnastics Begin?

    There are those that can and those that do not even try; M-Team CAN. I believe that any Taekwondo practitioner that is not actively engaged in developing their skill to the highest level should just quit the art and do something easier. When I watch M-Team I am inspired and work harder to...

    Thought I'd share this tip...

    This app is so cool. We use it in poomsae all the time now.

    Any advice on Black Belt Form Pyongwong for poomse compittion ????

    There are no chest level side kicks in any Kukkiwon form; Koryo has a knee level, the rest are face level.

    Sine Wave Article - thoughts comfirmed!

    Exactly! Nothing like sine wave. I have read the boxing papers, at least most of them. If it was real, everyone would do it.

    Sine Wave Article - thoughts comfirmed!

    Oh no, old sine wave thread alive again. I think it should be cosine wave but that is another story, (you will get it if you study math/science. Sine wave is bunk, period. The science is not there and any that I have read is a complete misunderstanding of biomechanics, physics and even math...

    Obesity Wave

    One of the best ways to help your students is to be in shape yourself; LEAD FROM THE FRONT! If they see you working they will be far more receptive to training as they see the results.

    Corrupted Poomsae

    Most US KKW instructors do not follow the standards either. I have watched these videos before and although he is not following the standard he actually has skill and is consistent. I am bothered much more by people who cannot even execute the techniques with tempo, power and flexibility. I...

    Yes, that is nice but I would like to see it use the World standards and classifications.

    Jion vs Ge-Baek vs Koryo

    I think Master Ky Tu Dang also fought at the World Taekwondo Championships in Chicago in 1977.

    Martial arts as collegiate sports

    Taekwondo, and Judo for that matter, faces some real issues in becoming an official or letter sport: Title IX. It can be an intramural and club sport but not a full event. In fact most universities have a womens gymnastic program that is school sponsored but not a mens. The men have been...

    Forms looking for ideas for a different way of doing traditional poomse

    Keumgang and Jitae are the only two forms that you do not have to land on the same spot, that is from the Kukkiwon.

    Has there ever been a tournament/competition combining ITF and WTF?

    I disagree. The fighter will make the difference, not the targets.

    Kukkiwon usage of honorifics and grade

    Well, I would say that makes you a good teacher. It is okay because I suck too but I am trying to get better everyday.

    Kukkiwon usage of honorifics and grade

    Well Twin, I will not comment on the performance but not many others would actually post a video of themselves doing anything, I give you respect!

    Kukkiwon usage of honorifics and grade

    If one has a western understanding then maybe but if you understand the language and culture sabum does not mean “Master” as we would say it. It literally means, “Teacher of teachers”. Look at it from that idea and it might make more sense.

    Kukkiwon usage of honorifics and grade

    The great thing about the kukkiwon is that they do not tell you to do anything; they present the information as guidelines. My teacher does not teach exactly from the kukkiwon curriculum, he adds many of his own ideas. Before the poomsae standards were really being pushed we did things a bit...

    Kukkiwon usage of honorifics and grade

    Thank you Master Cole but I like Twins blunt rants, lol. I am by no means good at poomsae yet. There are many that I consider much better, like poomsaeguy and miles, but I will take the comment with respect. I wish I was so refined that I could not say, “That is crap”, as the...

    Kukkiwon usage of honorifics and grade

    Actually, I would not. I agree that they are not very good but to lump them into, "kukkiwon black belts suck", is not right.

    Kukkiwon usage of honorifics and grade

    I do not think Twin is trying to be mean, he has a bad taste in his mouth about the WTF/Kukkiwon Taekwondo.
