wich one do u prefer and why? i actually cant decide between either of them but id like to hear youre opinions to decide wich one to practice
Well I am bias at best since I have been doing TKD for 25 years, I guess it is the Art and all the SD principle that is involved thoughout the style. Before TKD it was Okinwa Karate and they seem to mix pretty well together.
...And that is only a partial list
I've seen that list before somewhere, XS. And it seems like you could spend a lifetime just learning the names of the various CMA styles, let alone learning one of the styles itself!
To me, that's great, one of the terrific things about the CMAs. You have to be glad there was no central CMA directorate a few hundred years back stamping out all the variants to produce a monoclonal one-size-fits-all product...
Not wishing to hijack the post but yes... and no.
The variety is mighty cool and looking at things form different perspectives is good but I can do without the politics, lineage fights and true, secret, direct, fake transmissions.
But I do love the CMA styles so I guess more yes than no
That's until you get into the politics etc. Then you get people practicing the exact same style right down the pre class warmup sessions telling you you're not doing "true TKD" etc, not to mention the various spins the numerous Kwans have put on TKD from one to the next. At that point it seems just as pissy as the next art. :high5:One of the impressions I get of TKD is a lack of that variety. Furthermore, I get an impression that it was probably once there, but the art has been paired down to an efficient minimum. That's fine, but it limits the areas one can specialise in within the art.
Hello, If comparing art to art....both are excellant for what they do!
When two arts complete against each other? ...than it is the person who makes the art win. NOT the style of the art.
Most times the better skill person, one with more cardio, will have the advantage....Aloha
PS: A street fighter with more cardio...in a real fight will have the advantage..
