Hapkido is not Tae Kwon Do, it is not a sport and it is effective in live combat, no flying kicks. After ten years of hapkido it upsets me when people say it is like TKD!!! I hope razor foot shuts you down!!

Here's a tamer reply. They are both Korean MAs, which may be why you are confusing it with TKD. Hapkido is a self defence oriented MA, while TKD is a striking art. Think Judo vs Karate. They are similarly different (ignore the oxymoron,lol)

Taekwondo is also a martial art.

Why don't you calm down there, collect your thoughts, and post again when your less angry.

What's wrong? Doesn't feel good when you feel someone has insulted your art? Hate to tell you this but anything thing with punches, kicks, strikes, or any form of defense is combat effective. It depends on the individual and how you apply it. I have been trying to explain that to you ince day one but for some reason you fail to see it.

Boxing has no kicks, no take downs, no grappling, and no chokes but it is very combat effective. A skilled boxer can take you apart. And guess what, last I checked boxing was a sport.

But I am sure with your skills, you could have easily defeated someone like a Roy Jones Jr or an Oscar De La Hoya in their prime. No Problem with a young Mike Tyson either I am sure. With your skills, you would have easily gotten through their defenses and choke them out. Sure, no problem.

We usually don't respond so hostile to such posts, it's not the way we do things around here, because it isn't constructive. I suggest you get used to these kind of questions, and PM one of the mods for an explanation of the "That's an interesting question" automated response.

Chillax bro!

Would it help to make the TKD forum officially a Korean forum?

Too right Hapkido isn't like TKD. We had some guys from the Hapkido club come to a TKD seminar and I was amazed that they thought our stretching was intense (most of them found it very hard).

Doubtless they were likewise amazed that we were absolutely pathetic at takedowns, trapping and locks!

I think the arguments which would break out between HKD and TKD in terms of leniage and legitimacy would certainly make the forum more interesting.

First of all to yaze, I am sorry for being so abrupt, I am not usually like this, I am just dealing with a few things right now. I have tried to find out what you are talking about, but I cant, maybe if you told me a bit more about it, like the proper name I will try my hardest to help you out! I owe you that much at least. Once again I am sorry brother!!

*bows apologetically*

I never insulted TKD!!!!! I have merly pointed out the larger holes TKD has because it doesnt deal with all contingencies "just kick him in the head"...well what if you cant....then what? I have often wondered why you all take such offense!!

Quote:

Hate to tell you this but anything thing with punches, kicks, strikes, or any form of defense is combat effective.




You kick in soccer.....what type of art is that? you can punch/slap a volleyball, what art is that? No a sport is a sport, a combat art is a combat art! TKD WAS a combat art! But the sport aspect is killing it!
Tell me how many militaries teach their armies TKD, or kicking in hand to hand combat? then tell me how mwny militaries teach a style that is more like HKD. That should be the final answer for this! Because that is a way to tell combat effectivness, how many militaries back it!
That sounds pretty fair to me!

Quote:

Yes the individual is the most important part of the art, however if two individuals of equal skill should meet up, the one with the stronger art will win! Can you disagree? UFC statistics will prove me right. I use UFC because TKD doesnt cater for grapplers as assailants, TKD is only useful against another TKDer! But again this is only what I have found, therefore my opinion!

Quote:

Yes boxing is a hell of a defense style as well as sport,
could a boxer beat a MT fighter? I doubt it. MT is a more efficient strike art than TKD, it has a greater arsenal, it doesnt have take downs. It kicks low, pnches elbow and knees, it does however have grappling, I would back MT against TKD anytime.

I myself box and it was my first art, in a street fight I would back a boxer against a TKD artist!

Also in regard to boxing being a sport, the rules of excecution outside and inside the ring are the same! In the ring TKD cant punch the face, outside they can, but they dont train for it...... I hope you understand!

If I trained everyday for as long as they did, to fight professionally, then yes! Would it be easy....NO! It is never easy to fight, maybe that is another TKD myth! I also believe that I would have a easier time against TKD than boxing.

Also I am upset that you think I am a ground fighter, or a UFC groupie, I am as much a striker as you, I would start by taking out there legs. It is just that I am prepared for more than A TKD artist, because my art HKD is more complete than TKD and I suppliment it as well.

Would you say that HKD as an art, forget all that its the individual, I am talking techniques they teach, less effective for SD than TKD. SD is what all MA should be about!

Tell me Mr Foot could you beat those boxers in your prime and find it easy to get them with a spinning back flying kick!! That was a childish statenent!!

Before you attempt to delete this post, as you have done with all my other posts that disagree with you, or lock the thread, I am not being personally disrespectful but merely raising my opinions, which is what forums are about! you will be glad to know I will then PM it to everybody already on this thread.

I have been quite toleant up to this point, but this sort of comment goes over the boundries of civil behavior.

Trust that the Admin and all the Moderators are aware.

I am disapointed that time and time again you violate your own code of ethics with reagard to pacifism. Pacifism is not only avoiding violence in actions, but also in your words.

You give the impression that anyone who does not agree with you is stupid or uninformed. If this is not the case, you are choosing your words poorly.

The individuals who are moderators on this site are so because of their dedication and knowledge of a particular MA or multiple MA's. They are not appointed at a mere whim of the Admin.

You continue to confront others in a hostile manner with little regard for their feelings or experience. I would not expect this will be permitted to continue unabated.

In short, you dishonor yourself.

Take a step back, reflect on your verbal behavior, and modify your attitude.

It takes quite a bit to push my buttons Sir, and you have mashed it quite hard.

H2whoa I am saddened that you think all TKD practitioners are the same. In my limited years in martial arts I have met some outstanding individuals that were simply put ... amazing. They didn't compete in sporting events but trained for SD ... as I do. I have even seen some that would more then be a match for a boxer just with their TKD skills and no other. Again like many, TKD is being painted with the same brush!

As with "every" martial art there are holes that some will fill and others won't. In our system we do with Hapkido, JJJ and BJJ. We don't even mind stealing things like the clinch or elbows or anything that is useful. Obviously you must have seen holes in your martial arts to have cross trained in so many. If one such as Hapkido ... and I respect this art (as well as the others) ... were so effective for SD then why would there be any need to train further?

Not all TKD people kick to the head and infact we learn the opposite, BUT you had better believe if I have a chance to ring your bell then consider it rung. Another misconception you have about TKD is there is no grappling which is the furtherest from the truth. In the higher belt levels this is taught as well as higher SD training. What I think you are doing is talking sport TKD which has diluted much of the art but didn't really get to the meat of it to see what it actual is and has to offer.

TKD is only good against another TKD person ... wrong again. I know of individuals with TKD training that have competed in both Kickboxing and Muay Thai tournaments and dominated. Again this boils down to the person with the art and can be the only "true measurement".

Perhaps if you don't have much regard for TKD you may wish to stay off of the Taekwondo forum and hang around the BJJ/MMA forum or any other that more fits your profile.

I don't say this as a bad thing I just wish you would look at things with an open mind. TKD may have not worked for you but it does for others. And for a fact, TKD has been trained to the military ... both the Korean and US Marines.

My Ideas come from having trained TKD in a dojang, before realizing that it wasnt street effective.


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TKD if learned right is a devastating martial art. While not AS potent as Muay Thai, it is still nonetheless a good martial art.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



I agree, and by your own admission you are saying that Muay Thai is more potent than TKD!
No, TKD high kicks should not be used often nor should fancy moves.


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But peopl ehave that misconception that all we do is high kicks and twirling stuff. Well, most TKDers do middle section kicks most of the time.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



I am sure that I said, middle section kicks are the preferred kick o the TKD student, especially the turning kick (one of my personal favourites)!


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kicks are easy to catch? Whose kicks have you been catching, five year old kicks?



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



If you spend some time training to read body movements, you will see that kicks are more easy to see coming if you are looking for it. The problem is that average Joe expects you to punch not kick.


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TKD is a superior kicking art form.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



I do not see any error here!


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Although I am highly displeased with how sport is starting to dilute our art, it is nonetheless a useful art. People jump on the bash-TKD bandwagon with no prior knowledge or experience and do so only to go with the crowd.

I do have experience, I do repect TKD, I am not trying to jump on any kind of wagon, I am stating what I have found in my journey. As for sports diluting the art, I think that is a sad but true fact, it is also happening to Judo and Karate.

I have no doubt that you are a formidable warrior, one who feels so passionately about his art. However passion and confidence do not win battles, it was passion that led to the destruction of Troy!! If you read my post you will see that if I may break it down, is that against other arts TKD is a superior kicking art, in the ring, against other arts (though it is yet to be proven), TKD is quite deadly. As a mechanism for self defense against other arts it is not a whole system!! I study arts that strike and ground fight, have joint locks and throws....this is what I mean by a complete system. TKD doesnt teach some of these things, you yourself would know this.

No that is not my intent, I respect everyones opinion, I think people should start reading whats on the line, not what they think is between the line!

There is no dispute from me here, I agree. I just think that a mod should be more open to different trains of thought and not go around being sarcastic or calling people fools.

I would also hope that my humble 18 years of experience, and 10 year of challenging black belts of other styles, would give me enough knowledge to venture an opinion!

Hostile?!?!?!?!?!?! I respect their opinions, this all started with the thread "high kicks effective for SD", I said no, people jumped up and said well what about this? what about that? All I do is continue to answer there questions, till they get frustrated that I havent said yes, "you are correct", then Razorfoot locks the threads or deletes my posts!

I have always stated that, all my posts are based on my personal journey, from having challenged the best martial artists that I could, from being a bouncer in a nightclub, to just life in general! I even had to start a thread to this effect:

H2whoa I am saddened that you think all TKD practitioners are the same. In my limited years in martial arts I have met some outstanding individuals that were simply put ... amazing. They didn't compete in sporting events but trained for SD ... as I do. I have even seen some that would more then be a match for a boxer just with their TKD skills and no other. Again like many, TKD is being painted with the same brush!





I do not nor have ever said practitioners, I am talking soley of the art, and I believe TKD has more holes than any I have ever seen! Even that only as SD, it is very effective in the ring, but without rules.......

Quote:

As with "every" martial art there are holes that some will fill and others won't. In our system we do with Hapkido, JJJ and BJJ. We don't even mind stealing things like the clinch or elbows or anything that is useful.




I believe in evolving arts!

Quote:

Obviously you must have seen holes in your martial arts to have cross trained in so many. If one such as Hapkido ... and I respect this art (as well as the others) ... were so effective for SD then why would there be any need to train further?





Not holes, so much as defecits, in HKD (my primary art), I was taught to grapple, throw lock, punch, kick, groundfighting I just wanted to take a few into more detail than that art taught. I even went to TKD to teach me how to torque to get more power in my kick, and it did help. Like I said TKD is a good art.

Quote:

What I think you are doing is talking sport TKD which has diluted much of the art but didn't really get to the meat of it to see what it actual is and has to offer.





Yes I have and that is how I formed my opinion, and having beaten many TKD seniors, in challenge matches. At first I used to get my ass kicked, not often, but enough times before i adjusted so but now I can deal with it!

Quote:

TKD is only good against another TKD person ... wrong again. I know of individuals with TKD training that have competed in both Kickboxing and Muay Thai tournaments and dominated.




Muay Thai and kickboxing are the same thing, they are both kicking/striking arts, so there really isnt much variety. I feel your argument would be more convincing if they won at UFC, which to my knowledge neither hapkido,TKD, or muay thai, has won. if a TKD, muay thai artist was on the ground they would be toast, this is one of the holes no ground fighting, no technique to get out of a shimewazza, like a rear naked choke. It is one thing to say, not to get taken down, it is another thing to avoid it!

Quote:

Perhaps if you don't have much regard for TKD you may wish to stay off of the Taekwondo forum and hang around the BJJ/MMA forum or any other that more fits your profile.





Once more I have high regard for TKD, as a teaching tool for excecuting kicks, the values it instill, and the way that the sport teaches you anticipation, timng and peripheral vision, i just dont think it is effective as a SD art. I admire anyone who can stick it out in any art, being a MArtist is hard work, whatever art you do!

And I am first and foremost a striker!!

Quote:

I don't say this as a bad thing I just wish you would look at things with an open mind. TKD may have not worked for you but it does for others. And for a fact, TKD has been trained to the military ... both the Korean and US Marines.





My mind is open, I believe it is good for alot of reasone, but an open mind should never cloud judgement or perception!

I think you will find that the US marines have changed art since then, it is more like krav magna, which is alot like hapkido or Jujitsu!

h2whoa,
Now most folks get a little peeved when you say things about things they care for. I see this is the same for you as well. We all also seem to be wired with a desire for fair play and justice.I see this is the same for you.

Quote:


Hapkido is not Tae Kwon Do, it is not a sport and it is effective in live combat, no flying kicks. After ten years of hapkido it upsets me when people say it is like TKD!!! I hope razor foot shuts you down!!

*storms off angrily*




You admit to being angered by a persons comments about Hapkido. You also hope that I would take action against that person. Why for being young and confused? I should take action againt him for for asking his teacher what art he studies? Fortunately I do not take peoples recommendations on who I disipline or ban. If that were the case you would have been gone a long time ago. Many people have contacted my regarding your posts.

My question is what is the difference between you and the young man you would have me take action against?

You seem to feel free to define for the practioners of an art, just what that art is. Now you could molify your arguement by saying "in my experience" but you are still defining what the art is or has in it's syllabus. What is called TKD is i very broad collection of differing approaches. It is not monolithic.

As for the efficacy of TKD for self defence I can only speak from my experience and that of my students. I have used what I have learned on multiple occaision. I have survived attacks from individuals. I have fought multiple opponats on 4 seperate occaisions.I have been attacked with both a golf club and a young man with a knife. I the event with the knife, I disarmed the assailant breaking his wrist.

Four of my students have been assaulted. Each one !))% of them Survived. Some would say "won" or "KickedA$$". One Child One man, and two women. Each one out matched by size or in number. Each end their encounter descisvily in less than a minute. One woman even pinned her male attacker on the pavement in a walmart parking lot till police came.They have used strikes, kicks, Knees, joint locks,and pins on the ground. None of them was ranked higher than a green belt.

So I would say that all of us have been more than patient with the presentation of your opinion. You imply a little bit about what your experience with forums has been. Yes thing can get heated. Part of my job here is to see that cooler heads prevail. You have PMed me and plead your case when you have been offended. As you know I have taken action in the situations you have brought up. What would you have me do now?

Perhaps you could contact the Amin privately.

Oh,yes.... That would be me.
