For those of you who are interested in history of the MAs, there is a new feature length documentary currently being worked on. It is hope that this film will have theatrical release. Although this film will deal with TKD, the world's most popular MA & an Olympic sport, it will show the roots to Karate & the inlfuence that Okinawa, Japan & China have had on it.There is no release date yet, as it has been a work in progress for several years, they (Legacy Unity Vision Films) have set up a website for more information. If interested, please feel free to visit www.LuvFilms.com

Somebody's a little TKD-centric I think. Didn't bother to sugar coat that part at all did ya?

No worries, we're all biased towards our own chosen arts.

Everybody knows where ITFUnity stands in the love of his art. If there were "No worries" then what was the reason for the post?

Yeah you got that right. I was just trying to include some of the other areas that might make it more interesting for non-TKD members. I love my ITF TKD, but do know that TKD is not 2,000 years old & that its roots are firmly with Karate.

ITFUnity, is this film sanctioned by any of the major TKD organizations? The history part with karate seems to go against some of the history that the TKD orgs themselves have put out there. Wouldn't this be uncomfortable for them?

No Sir, it is a private venture. From what I understand, the executive producer who is funding the project is a TKD BB, but an independent, niether ITF or WTF membership. However, I think his roots (realy those of his seniors)could be traced back to Chang Hon, Oh Do kwan or Chung Do kwan, which many can be as well.
The research has led them to of course what many already know & that is TKD did not start 2,000 years ago, although Korea probably did have some fighting system at the time. They also realize that the roots from the 1940s Korea, are traced back to Okinawa, japan & china. The film will look to show that & how attempts to make it into a more Korean art so to speak, along with the political intrigue, infighting & the communist stigma etc. So it should have a broad appeal to MA students & some others.
Also, members of the ITF, WTF & independent TKD groups are all being interviewed.

Just my dry humor my friend. "breaking his b@ll$" a little, that's all.

I DON'T CARE WHO OR WHAT IT'S ABOUT!!!

WILL THERE BE HIGH FLYING KICKS OR NOT?!

IF NO, I won't watch it. A movie must have at least 1 fancy kick, or it's not worth watching.

Well I don't know what it will have, as it is not finished yet. It is my understanding that they are in south Korea now, with a scheduled interview of the WTF President. Then they are heading off to JeJu Island, where TKD was introduced to the military, which then facilitated its fast growth. I also heard that they went to north Korea & filmed their Demo Team in the TKD Palace. They also filmed the Demo that was performed at the TKD Hall Of Fame Banquet, ( www.taekwondohalloffame.com ) so there will be much action, as well as talking heads.
The point of nthis post is to alert people to the start up of their home page ( www.luvfilms.com ) where people can go for more info & to register for updates.
