The question also begs to be asked as to whether a sports-stylist can actually take a good body shot without the padding.

Personally, I think if the O-TKD guy is quick enough then (s)he can hit the street fighter with their medals and run away. of course if it is in London, they can show them the 2012 Olympic logo and make the street fighter vomit or curl up in helpless fits of laughter before 'owning' them.

BUT.... i do have some questions

Does street tkd require the use of more close range combat with more hand techniques?

So ... what is the difference? Is that difference big?





Street TKD is practiced in a parking lot.

How many people train TKD on the street? I mean seriously, please say whether you train on the street and what street you train on.

I feel sorry that you can not afford a venue and you are forced to train outside on the street. How do you dodge all those cars?

Pfft, I don't think any of us well dressed O-TKD stylist would fight while dressed in our 2000 Herb Perez Limited edition Olympic Gold Medal Doboks.

The best way to train for 'street TKD' is in your normal clothes, and without mats etc. Base the encounters on realistic scenarios etc.

I've been doing TKD since 1991 and was recently on a course, I threw three kicks maximum (ovber the week) when fighting against more than one opponent and resorted to groin grabs, simulated eye gouges, bites etc.

Unless you're in a duel, you're going to resort to more instinctive and 'safe' techniques (safe to you that is).
