OK I'll counter that with an error in the book... When we got to that point at the 2001 Nefoundland course I asked General Choi about the level of the strike. He responded in a manner which indicated he was surprised I would ask such a question. My response was "So sir, then the book is wrong? " He asked what I was talking about. I marked the spot in the book ahead of time. He confirmed the book was wrong, and told Master Lu to make a note of it so the ITF could issue a technical,correction bulletin as it had done in the past. For whatever reason, to my knowledge, no bulletin was ever issued. so you see, the book is not always right, let alone providing a clear explanation.




Nice counter (I like it lol)... has this bit ever been amended in reprints? Was the error a picture, a bit in type or both?

I was at a seminar with gen Choi in 1994, where he said that he had stopped researching TKD and it was upto his higher grades to continue the research.

So, who ok's the research now?

Heck if I know, some of the people discussing the issues here are teachers themselves, and they keep going back to what the general said, meant, and tried to do. If your an instructor I would think you would present your students with all sides of the technique and let them make up their own minds. Unless you want cult like thinking, raise no questions, seek no other sources.

It is a text error regarding the level of the technique being at the Attacker's Solar plexus level when it should read shoulder level. Other uncorrected errors include inconssitent stance directions in Moon Moowhich I raised on another forum, poor descriptions such as the pulling hands in Tong Il Turning kick directions in So San and Se Jong

That is something I have brought up before in an article I did and a certain piece of literature I cant mention .. though you know the old saying "Never say Never"!!

There is a difference between keeping students informed of variations and allowing an open class! Would a WTF school allow a student to practice the older forms exclusive of the ones that the school teaches?

And does it still remain uncorrected?

Though in relation to the subject at hand, this is an error, the other (for whatever reason) an omision!

To the contrary, as an ITF Instructor I feel the primary lesson is to teach the ITF standard. That way any ITF student can step into my gym and fit right in. Vince De John used to post here regularly. He visited my gym once and I had students perform a pattern for him. When they finished I told him that they had learned their patterns in different places. One from me in Chicago, omne a french Canadian, one from Conneticut, one from Siberia , and one from Poland. He was unable to see that they were from different gyms let alone different parts of the world.

This does not mean we do not teach stuff in addittion to the ITF nmmaterial as well. We do, and have lots of fun.

I have not seen any later volumes correcting this or the other things mentioned.
