Ive been training under a Ju_jitsu Sensei for almost 6 years now, and Recently ive been attending some small underground competetions of course unsanctioned by any major organization just lots of martial arts enthusiasts.... anyway, these seems to be a surplus of TKD guys there. All the fights are put into experience category 1-2 yrs 3-4.. etc Ive fought 27 TKD guys, never lost once, im not that good of a fighter, I mean im not a noob but theres always more to learn and I see my own flaws, but TKD fighters, the art itself seems to be inpractical , 7 foot kicks in the air dont really effect me much as I rush in for a slam or a sweep, which they have little to no defense against, not to offend any TKD people but whats the deal

The deal is TKD became an Olympic sport. Thus causing many people to open and join schools bases solely on what the Olympic rules are and winning Olympic tournaments. The kicks you see many TKD people do will work against other sport TKD people. I do a TKD that is more like a traditional martial art. We don't do crazy spinning kicks, or anything like that. We teach alot of hand techniques, blocks, takedowns, grappling, low kicks, knees, elbows, etc. Do we do some kicks to the head, sure, but most martial arts do. Most TKD schools make me sick.

I reckon it won't be long before this thread is closed. The "deal" is that TKD is a standup striking art. That's what we train for. If you take a sprinter and make him run a marathon, he's not going to do very well is he? Same goes for TKD and groundwork.

Now see your Particular Style of TKD sounds like it has some useage in Real life situations. The olympic style of TKD I would never ever call a Martial Art, it doesnt fit the definition of the word, I would call it a sport.... The guys I fought were absolutly GREAT, very balanced very fit, excellent to watch, useless vs. me not to toot my own horn. All of you TKD guys who practice the version of TKD that I described, plz do not risk embareassment at a Multiple MA competetion, plain and simple

Im just saying AS A "martial art" Students of TKD should be trained for ground work, as well and stand up fighting. I mean if some poor sap who knows TKD gets cought up on the street and uses what he knows , then ends up on the floor and gets beat because of what he Dident know. ALL MA's should train the student for every possible situation, of course thats impossible, so you fill that gap with one word, Adaptation, every fighter should be able to adapt to everything, thats one of the things that makes a great fighter great .........Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless--like water.
Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup,
You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle,
You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Now water can *flow* or it can *crash*!

I gotta agree with Apeus on this one. There are way too many TKD "fighters" running around without any clue what a real fight is like. They think just because sparring in their school is conducted with all sorts of limits that real fighting is just like that. However, there are people like Apeus running around who know what they're doing.
