You just love to stir it up, don't you Ken.

Just one question: Do you need to block someones hands if you kick away his feet from under him when he approaches for a strike ?

Think about the strategy behind styles, not only about a technique for some idea. If a hand block is missing, perhaps, they don't use that ?

I know it's very fashionable to talk about the "true applications" in a "Real life street fighting" situation, but listen: These arts are battlefield tested for hundreds, if not thousands of years. If an art has lasted this long, ESPECIALLY with the detailed history of Korean Tae Kwon Do, it's got something to it. Pride for one's style is one thing, but don't make it block out your understanding of another style's strengths.


Don't let anyone tell you that any one style is superior, or "light years ahead" in any way. It's all down to the practitioner. It's the practisioner (as well as the teacher) behind the art not the art itself that deterimine a fight.

Maybe I need to lighten up Because you're talking about just Sport Tae Kwon Do but not Tae Kwon Do as a whole right?

thanks for your replys.........i see you guys have done your homework by reviewing the above responses.............

CHANGWUJI........thanks for your respectfull insight..........

NEILOO92...........all those things you mentioned are good but there is no substitute for sparring with a partner for timing...my suggestion is to start slow to regain your coordination and to work on combinations. then over time, speed up as those things return to you arsinal............

actually tkd for black belt use to allow punching to the face but when they wanted to promote it as a sport they couldnt allow punching to he face because it was considered too violent...between mauo tai and tkd i prefer both...if don right tkd yo hardly have to block its mostly feints and dodges than quickly coming in wth a hit...th problem is you have to be really good with your timing and speed to get it right...tai boxing you have to be able to take hits...they boh ahve advantages and disadvantages...they wrote an article on this in blck belt magazine to see how the two are similar and different...but tang soo do is the combat variation to tkd
