Because of the discussions here and because of how well they have benefitted ITFUnity, I have made the decision to purchase the 15 volume encyclopedia set on CD-Rom. It is available through this website if anyone else wants it too.

It gets so frustrating trying to keep up with his discussions and not having a reference point to work from. As much as I enjoy his perspectives, it will help me to be able to reference what he is discussing as the conversations progress.

I think the Encylopdia is a great tool, whether or not you are ITF. Just keep in mind, using it as only a reference tool, ie looking things up, has limited advantage, limited to whatever you are looking up. To get maximum benefit, I respectfully suggest reading it all, which may be or is hard to do on a CD Rom, which by the way is the 1983 edition.

ITFUNITY

The part of your reply from the very first sentence, made me dizzy! "Even those that just do Olympic sparing are still in a better position to defend themselves if they did nothing. This is what I am talking about, I do not know of a single school that only teaches Olympic sparing! I am sure if some one searched the globe long enough one may find one somewhere, this is what is driving me crazy on this forum, the insistence that these schools are everywhere. This is exactly the attitude I am trying to dispel because it simply is not so. Yes there are bad instructor always has been even in old day training. Next dizzying comment, If you want sd, one must train in that system that only does SD & nothing else. What the heck system would that be? I can not figure why ITF people insist that they have any better lock on training for SD than a WTF affiliated school, again not so! dizzy dizzy dizzy. I know you meant no harm with your reply this is the underlying attitude on this discussion forum.

I see. Well let me try to elaborate. This was offered as it appeared on another post. I am actually supporting the notion that even if someone ONLY did Olympic sport fighting, they would be in a better position to defend themselves. For example, the sweat & hard work they put into the sport, would help them, as you have said as well, as they are atheletes who learn to kick & punch. So to me it is just silly to say WTF "style" rules fighters gain no SD skills. Add that to the fact that there may only be a select few schools, which I never saw either, but apparently do exist, that ONLY do Olympic sparring, most regular WTF aligned (maybe not a good term) do have a SD component of their training.

So I was trying support your arguement, not make you dizzy! Sorry

Hey guys this is starting to look like a Soccer fan debate lol it's getting religious lol I'M BUTTING IN.... Anyways I was thinking, why don't we just do a WTF, ITF AND GTF get together and settle our opinion on the mat? Show forms, sparring(point and non point sparring), Self defense(watever we know), philosophy ETC..... It's better to demonstrate a martial arts than to try and explain and really express our opinions.

Bow out with respect from a TKD/BAGUA MARTIALIST

Only if we include full ground grappling to submission, my stand-up sucks unless I can take somebody down.
