There is nothing personal between you and I. Just your information is questionable.You guys don't really want to talk to me, so after this, I won't engage any of you 2 to 3 people.
You just want to spar.
Taegeuk. And the book does show Pal Jang stepping forward, but, for example, just in the Poomsae section, and not going into detail:The book shows all taeqeuk forms exactly as Kukkiwon and my instructor showed me, and they have Taeqeuk pal jang even stepping forward on the first move, like you have been saying is how it is done to this day.
The back stances are way too long.
The front stances are way too wide.
Blocks do not block the correct height.
The described path of movements often is non-standard.
Punches are to incorrect targets.
Outside of the Poomsae section, much of the terminology used for blocks, strikes and kick is non-standard, and in most cases not terminology I've heard outside of the confines of that book. And I've heard a lot of terminology, in a lot of different places.
I read it the day it was released. Like I do with most Taekwondo publications that claim to contain current information, even if it does turn out to be non-standard.Assuming any of you even read it, and not just glanced at the cover online.
So prove any of it wrong. You came in with the claim here that Cyriacus did the wrong kick and that there are two types of kick, one called narabam kick and the other called Tornado kick. As this claim appears to go against the current accepted worldwide norm ie Kukkiwon standard, the burden of proof is on you.You are just saying things. Kwonkicker doesn't kick properly, I don't know anything outside my own back yard.
Likewise with your experience - if you have a wealth of experience that qualifies you to make the claims you are making, then I would be happy to hear it. I asked you for your source, I gave you mine, the burden of proof is on you. You haven't given any specific answer, so I can only assume that you got this from a book or a non-standard instructor, until you prove otherwise by stating a source.
Absolutely, where the shot is aimed at the person not the information.But You give me full credit for anything that can even be remotely taken as an insult or cheap shot. using the door for balance, female flexibility, being sad about something.
I comment only on your information and how that information makes you come across here on the forum in terms of your experience. I am not attacking you personally, but I am questioning the validity of your argument.
It is, if I say it, I am bad, and if one of the 3 of you say something, it is justified and probably kinder than what I deserve.
There is a difference between attacking the argument and attacking the person.It is just a few of you.
It seems like each forum has a few Guardians of whatever martial art. or they see themselves that way.
But from what I have seen, there isn't balance.
Sorry Admin, I can't keep it polite when some people keep goiter stabbing, so I am done.
Again, a shame.
