TKD will be the featured art on the Human Weapon series this week (Friday 12/21/07 @ 10 pm on the History Channel in the USA). Be prepared for the full WTF slant as they will be in South Korea. I will be VERY surprised if there is ANY reference to the ITF and the Chang Hon style. I'm looking forward to it as I'm curious as to the content.

It will be interesting to see how well the show's stars fare when deprived of all their useful weapons; hitting in the head with the hands, grappling, etc. What a joke.

Go to the "Martial Arts Talk" forum and look at my "Human Weapon Series" Thread. Bill Duff gets KO'd and there's a video. Sorry for the spoiler.

The Bill Duff got KO'd says nothing about his fighting skills. As I said earlier, when you are stripped of all your weapons and reduced to playing foot tag, you may well be vulvernable to the more experienced foot tag players.

None of the matches from ANY of the styles that the have featured says anything about his fighting skills. It seemed to me (and many others watching the program)that their opponents have taken it easy on them ! For the record, the karate sparring (Kyokushin) that they did also did not allow hands to the head either, and the Kung Fu as well, I beleieve.

fileboy, you're coming dangerously close to art-bashing.

Not art bashing, just being honest. After more than 25 years doing TKD, I feel I know something about it.

Although I agree that olympic style sparring has been bad for the art, after watching this series there is a realization that "Stripping" of weapons for the sporting aspect of the art is NOT just olympic style sparring. The Karate episode proves that. What is funny is how olympic sparring IS bashed for it far more than other sport arts! Honestly to me the bigger critisism of olympic sparring is the lack of action (bounce,bounce,bounce round kick, bounce, circle bounce round kick kihap). This is why it is close to losing its medal status in the olympics, too boring to watch, not because you can't throw hands to the head!
