I have been training in I.T.F Taekwon-do for 18 years and still continue to train. I have never had to use it or fight at all outside of a sparring match. I disagree with people who say Taekwon-do is useless. How can you know if you have never actually practiced the REAL Taekwon-do or even had to use it? Anyone can say any martial art is useless, it all comes down to the practitioner. No martial art is truly useless, only the practitioner can be useless and not represent the art properly.
Truth be told, the way martial arts are taught now is a far cry from the way they were taught years and years ago. There is no longer the necessity to defend ones life in the way that there was in say feudal Japan. You have to realize this by reading any of the textbooks that were written by any of the martial arts pioneers or founders of the particular style.
But anyways I would definitely like to talk to and meet anyone in Taekwon-do, especially I.T.F




Not true there are still a few Traditional Masters out there my current Kung-fu teacher is one such. He never allows his students to go to a tournament as a competitor if he finds out you did go no matter your rank he'd ban you from the school. He strictly teaches a defense system and a lot of our basic moves would get you banned from a tournament anyway. He does allow and even encourages or goes with students to attend tournaments to get exposure to different types of martial arts, also please note he shows us specific ways to defeat different styles at these tournaments by pointing out weaknesses in stance and the way the art moves. Doesn't mean were unbeatable just means he is giving us an edge something i think is very valuable and shows a teacher actually cares for his students.

I watch MMA a lot and am a big fan of fighters with a Muay Thai base, so one time when I got in a fight, I decided to give it a go. Worked well, because the other guy just wanted to throw down. Clinched his neck, then leaped up and kneed him in the mouth.
I just wish I could have tried other stuff out. I don't get in fights often.

When I was younger I studied Tae Kwon Doe. My father use to teach me. He had a 3rd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Doe and was a black belt in Ninjitsu. But after two years I just lost interest. And some of the things I used in a fight. But I was always defending my self or my brothers/cousins in grade school. Lol I learned a little Judo from watching tournaments. I use to love tossing people. >.>

Shotokan Karate although I would attribute success more to the fact I have a Sensei who has taught us the difference between Martial Arts and real self defense.

i.e. Not getting into a fight in the first place and if that is not possible, how to prepare yourself in a good fighting stance without looking aggressive & how to keep the law on your side for the aftermath



That's impressive. I thought so long as you state it was self-defense, and didn't hurt the person to the point of a broken bone or death, it would be somewhat alright. I'll have to ask my teacher about that.

It very much depends on where you live. In the UK, the self defense laws are OK but you have to always be conscious of that annoying phrase `reasonable force` there are some interesting cases that I learnt about at a seminar, I can find them if you would like?
