Why don't anyone in here use Korean names for techniques, hacen't read much martial art stuff in english (or at all), and I can't figure out what the * you are all alking about.
I use names for kicks like tollio chagi, yop chagi, paro yop chagi, ap chagi etc etc. They are the names we use at our school.
I guess you don't learn the korean names. You probably practise what we call "sports Tae Kwon Do" and not traditional Tae Kwon Do (where disciplin, respect etc are very important factors of TKD). :P

Even in the same organization, not all schools teach korean language.

I am not Korean nor do I live in Korea-why do I need to learn Korean names for things?

Why would I use Korean terminology on a website populated by English speakers(or typers)?

So just because I can name things in Korean it means I have discipline,respect and am receiving "quality" training?

One other suggestion, try studying English before you worry about prattling on in Korean. Apparently you haven't mastered it yet.

I sorry you don't understand what the @#$# is being talked about if not in Norwegian or romanized Korean. I use english in my class and when conversing in that language to ensure the most people understand. Not everyone is taught the korean terms for everything. I teach these to students approaching 1st Dan. White belts 10/9th gup have a hard enough time getting used to the dojang environment without not being able to understand what they are told to do. It is much easier to have a new student do a front kick for a front stance, than an ahp chagi in ahp sohgi.

Look at this as a way to improve your language skills.

You should learn the MA aspect of language, no one ever said you had to speak korean. It's not yop Chagi by the way it is as an example, Yup Cha Ki ...side kick.

Schanne,

Are you an expert in linguistics?

Seriously. You wouldn't believe how many different pronounciations I have heard for Korean words. All from people from Korea.

It's just like any other country. We all have our little twangs/accents.

Plus some sounds in Korean do not appear in English and can be imitated, poorly at that.

Of course I'm not a lingquist but at least I can give him the right spelling and pronunciation.

I've seen quite a few different spellings. A common one for side kick is Yeop Chagi. I don't recall ever seeing Cha Ki for kick. I don't think there is a universal "correct" spelling when translating from Korean to English. I think Chagi is used in Gen. Choi's books (I'll check tonight). If so, that's good enough for me...

Why the h*ll would there be ONE way to spell another character set. I know that in chinese there are at least two commonly used notation forms, wade-giles and pinyin. I assume there are just as many for korean.

Even when you dont count the notation systems, there are still many more spellings, some so that people can read the words more easily. If Xinzhong Zung, is pronounced shinjong tsung, it isn't much to a student not used to pinyin.

Sorry Schanne, but I speak 6 languages, not korean, but I've read the taekwondo terms in 4 languages, and all of them are slightly different. Dammit, do you think the russians spell it the same way? They don't even have the right character set!!
