sounds like some of you guys have had some bad expieriences...

If you took in a reputable dojang, i think you guys would like it a bit better (maybe). I love the forms and the excersise. The kicks, as useless as some are, are great for technique, chambering, coordination, flexibility, power, and speed that can be applied in different areas. Although its a relativly new MA, the history leading up to it was pretty interesting. Some of the strikes are useful....

but what can you say about TKD's combination kickS??
when an opponent is hit by.. lets just say a just 100 pound kick.. do you think would he be able to react and counter your strikes.. it's just 100 lbs.. what more if he can deliver 3 kicks in less than 5 seconds having a weight of more than a hundred pound??

Hi El Duce

"but what can you say about TKD's combination kickS??

Tjis is the thread for things we like about TKD, so it's a bit restrictive.

I think combination kicks teach great body control. They also taght me that they're useless.

As for 3 kicks in 5 seconds. If you stand at kicking distance for 5 seconds, you're going to get mauled.

what do you mean by your 1st statement??

for the last statement,
of course, it will not happen if you're able to execute the kicks successfully.

another thing is, for me,
one must able to deliver a correct kick in different situations. it's just like an action-reaction thing.

why should you use roundhouse kick to a guy if he's giving you a push kick(like reverse kick, side kicks.. etc.)

has anyone among you guys ever heard of an "asian long kick"??

this kick,is maybe, too fancy to be done on an actual combat, but this kick is one of the strongest kicks i know

i think he meant in his first statement that there isnt much he likes about tkd. lol
as for his second statement i agree....think about it....to kick (especially kicking quickly in succession) you must be standing on one leg, there are several things that are bad about that...one...you are off balance...and very easily taken down, and two since you are on one leg (and especially if you are kickin repeatedly) you are not mobile...ie you cant move out of the way!! therefore you will be mauled if you try to stand on one leg and kick repeatedly with the other leg for 5 seconds...which is way more time than a good fighter would need to take you out.

in the first place, why would you kick your opponent with just one kind of kick??
if you'll execute a sidekick to your opponent, do you think your opponent wouldn't budge even just a little bit??
