Yeah, I remember him saying something in an interview that the Shotokan elements had been phased out (or something like that).
Funny, at the seminar in question, we were also shown a "new way" of taking up position for 3-step sparring... because the "old way" of putting your arm up to gauge the distance "was not scientific".
My use of the word "phoney", is actually quoting the General. Someone asked him what he thought of all the other kinds of TKD and he replied that there was only one kind of TKD... the others were "phoney".
See how well I block your punches with my jaw!!
