To tell you the truth, America is now the home of the martial arts. Although going to Korea would be great (I would also like to go). If you are going with the expectation that Korean Martial Art schools are going to be on every corner and you will come home a master, you are going to be disappointed.





Well Matt, sorry to disappoint you, but to tell you the truth, you have some really fantastic taekwondoin in the US national-team, Steven Lopez, Mark Lopez, Diana Lopez, Antony Graf, and a few more, but in Korea it is quite different.
Studying Taekwnodo in Korea means beginning at the age of five and training under exterme conditions for many years.
I visited Korea twice. I took part at three tournaments I was practising with a professional team, trained by a double world-champioan- for two weeks- 96 degree in the shade and we had to give full power for 4 hours a day.
Please donīt you compare that with a taekwondo school you will find around the corner in USA.
As I know the Lopezī are based in Texas and work a lot in the basic camp in Colorado and you will find a lot of good martial arts schools in the US, but do me a favour, just go out in the world, go to Iran, go to Korea, go to Europe before throwing words like you did.

Rude words! There are many many of them and I would also say the US are one of the leading nations in martial arts.

** UPDATE **

For all those interested, Chief Master Taejoon Lee got back in contact with me (about Tae Soo Do competitions at least).

The below link is for the rules of Tae Soo Do comps if anyone is interest. It is a good insight to what goes on in sparring/fighting in Tae Soo Do, as well as other events.

** UPDATE **

Master Taejoon Lee's full response can be found on the other forum I have about this topic, located here: http://www.fightingarts.com/ubbthreads/s...2c#Post15820941

I have not received permission to post the link on the above thread on the TKD forum so far. Therefore, out of courtesy, I have not done so. I did receive permission to do so on another FA forum (see above link).

Master Lee discusses Tae Soo Do, and how it fits into HRD as a whole
