To elaborate on what Mr. Spiller said. Semantics can be confusing . "Father" "Founder" etc. George Washington is considered the "Father" of the USA, yet certainly he had plenty of help.Wasn't Gen. Choi the one who suggested the name Taekwondo? I believe that's where all this stuff about him being the "Father of Taekwondo" came from. I stand to be corrected on this, but I don't think he "invented" Taekwondo - that was a group effort, IIRC. He just got some good publicity out of it and he ran with it.
