My uncle signed up at a local TKD McDojo a while back. During sparring, everyone was telling him “why are you throwing punches? Punches don’t score points.” His reply was “I’m not here to score points.” This was every class, not competition specific classes.
I’m glad that same mentality isn’t everywhere in TKD.
That is the main reason they started referring to their style as Korean Karate instead of TKD. TKD moves away from what the founder had traditionally trained in.
