[Choi Kwang Do] Why did GM Choi split from General Choi?

Why did Grandmaster Choi founder of Choi Kwag Do split from General Choi's ITF group ?.

Some say it was purely financial to make more money on his own. Others he disagreed with some TKD principles and wanted to develop his own style.

Others say that it was because the intensity and harshness of the training he was doing actually caused him to develop health problems, and the split came about after he travelled to America and found out exactly why these had developed. As Melanie says, check the threads listed at the bottom of the page, they might help.

Not everyone saw Gen. Choi as the end all when it came to TKD. There was also some bad feelings because of his background and North Korea. I know we have a couple of GM's from Korea here locally that do not speak very highly of him because of his burial in North Korea.
