Thanks for the video Luther! Very informative. Have you spent time studying in each style or are you predominantly Soo Bak Do or Moo Duk Kwan?

Really interesting in the way you throw the hips in the different styles and how this is different again from TKD. For example with the front kick, if kicking with a right leg front kick, I (in ITF) would drive the right hip forward with the leg.


Thanks, yeah I study more then one faction of TSD, Soo Bahk Do is just more appealing to me. I enjoy the use of hip and feel it makes you dig a little deeper into the technique then usual.

Thank you. Not the easiest thing in the world to put yourself out there like that but I figured I'd give it a shot haha, take care.

You are absolutely right. I used to host a YouTube show where it was basically just my face, and it can be a pretty daunting thing. You did good.

I'd like to ad this to the thread about TSD. I have studied a bunch of martial arts but I ha email never practiced a martial art that focuses so much on the development team of the person, aside from martial skill. All traditional martial arts have this quality, but TSD in particular really let's this become an identity for the art. It's a beautiful attribute of tang soo do.

Styles: Tang Soo Do (ITF)

PostPosted: Mon Aug 17, 2015 6:53 am    Post subject: Questions about arm patches... Reply with quote

Is a Red colored "Cho Dan" arm patch different then a Green colored "Cho Dan" Arm patch?

This applies to the Int. Tang Soo Do Fed.

I've noticed different colors in class - wondering if this is like our belt system and Green is the "Junior" to the Red or vice versa?

Thanks.

I would not know the answer to this, in general the world tanks you know association is much more popular here in Arizona it would seem , also I personally do not belong to a Federation, and neither did I belong to a federation and studios I trained in for maybe 50% of my martial arts training places . Sorry but hopefully somebody else can answer that question for you, I think they are all over in the taekwondo forum having a party LOL

Another fun fact, in my most recent place of study Tang Soo Do was commonly called (on paper as well) the Korean variant of shotokan karate. I'm not for copying and paste my novels on the history but the Koreans openly admit to learning this art while the Japanese occupied Korea. Some say it was taught to them by a few Japanese soldiers when nobody was around, others say they watched the soldiers study it and practiced on their own. Fact is that it derives from Shotokan karate.

http://taekwondo.wikia.com/wiki/Chun_Kuk_Do

Chun Kuk Do uses many of the same forms as Tang Soo Do, though Chun Kuk Do has a few forms that are unique to the style. I've also heard Moo Duk Kwan Taekwondo sometimes referred to also as American Tang Soo Do. I don't think there are any universally agreed-upon definitions for some of these things though...different authors will use the same phrases to mean different things.

http://taekwondo.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline_of_Taekwondo

Certainly most of the founders of taekwondo studied karate at some point (as well as other martial arts), but it wasn't always shotokan. For example, Byung In Yoon of YMCA Kwon Bop Bu/Chang Moo Kwan studied Shudokan karate. Kwe Byung Yoon of Jido Kwan studied Shito-rye karate.

Also, often young Korean men were conscripted into the Japanese Army; from what I've read, the Korean men might learn a little martial arts that way as well - not just by watching Japanese soldiers, but by being in the Japanese military themselves. The key founders of taekwondo though, most of them were able to attend university in Japan during the occupation, outside Korea, so they learned karate at university and then brought karate (as well as other martial arts) with them back to Korea after the war.
