Well Korea needed something to call there own and TKD was there way of claiming independents for itself and seperate itself from other Martial Arts. By the way I just got off the phone with G.M. Sung Kim out in California and he said that he remembers the day they formally meet and began the transformation and what his Master said this is a sad day and that the beginning of a new era was going to hurt the concept of what we call now TKD. He says he also remember his G.M. not liking the unification but it was not much any of them could really do because it was not them but for a country looking for something to call there own. I wish that I could have talked longer but when I go out there this summer I will get more info and pass it along.
