I study the ITF style of TKD and use my kicking maybe 70% of the time because of the distance I can cover as well as the power I generate from my legs compared to hand attacks, although a spinning backhand can cause extreme discomfort

The forms (kata,poomse,etc) I study are from the ITF (International) style. I suppose there's alot of different ideas and thoughts as to where they originated. I was led to believe the kata i'm studying was presented by General Choi Hong-hi & Mr. Jhoon Rhee, I have no reason to doubt it. The current kata I practice is Tan-Gun, ToSan, YulKuk, Hwa-Rang,Toi-Ge,Choi-Ge,Chung-Moo, Kwan-Ge, and Bassai-Dai. Now of course there's different spellings and variations on the moves. I love um all. My hardest to learn,hahaha,the first. Thanks.

The (Hyungs) that were taught to me I know are traditional, but you know I've watched other "forms" performed at tournaments here in Florida and it freaks me out how they "resemble" other styles and disciplines..it's really exciting for me to watch other's do their thing..keep it up..

Yes TKD does but it does have many other things (punchs, blocks, etc.)

The taekwondo i do is about 50:50 hands and feet. I'm an ITF geezer. My patterns are about 75% hand techniques.

Never underestimate punchs!!!

Actually even in WTF the forms/poomsae (and even koryo and on) mostly consist of hand movements and techniques. There are probably about 2-8 kicks max in the majority of all forms which each consist of about 20-30+ steps. <IMG SRC="/karateforums/forums/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">
