Sorry for me demos like that are just to fancy to convince me of the applications. I would recommend you watch the Randy Couture series which came on right after the clip you suggested. I actually have that entire Couture series and its great stuff on pummeling and take downs. You wanna see some cool take down check it out.
I no longer like watching demos which say this, this, and this will end up here. That's great with a willing opponent. But with live training your opponent is fighting you all the way. So those clean "artful" movements which are a prelude to the take down, are just not gonna get the job down. Because every movement is being met with resistance.
Sorry Stuart we hijacked your thread. But I have gotten to see your book. I think its great and feel is should be standardized for all TKD schools which practice your forms. I only wish that when I had started my TKD training my instructor taught practical application directly from the patterns instead of having them as separate entities. It would have given me a better appreciation for the time and practice I put into them.
