    There's another current thread that briefly discusses chambering by the ear. The first video is a good example of that in practice.

    I like the Kwanag-Gae, not for the details but for the attention to details. How many students learn to do patterns so precisely.

    Subtitles would be very helpful. :) Looks like good stuff, just couldn't understand what was being said.

    these are rough as they are done with a 4meg stills cam that has a vid function.

    the sound is not totally important to the content, but our hall has a very serious echo when empty and i know it's hard to hear on the vids. i can explain anything in email or other if required.

    i'm hoping to talk the mrs into getting a proper digi movie cam. then i may re-do some of these as updates later on??

    having seen cho's pattern videos and spoken to my own instructors who trained with him from the early 80's, along with reading a few bios on gm cho. it seems to me that he reverted back to some of the older forms of tkd and ohdokwan. meaning he put back in some of the more karate kata movements that were taken out over time by the itf.

    take the cresent kick in toi gye! shotokans jitte kata [ame=""]YouTube[/ame] contains the w-shaped block performed along with the cresent kick! this lead me to a nice application for the movement that was not as obvious from just looking at the itf version.

    hmmmm!! "must go make a video!!" ;)

    I'm also pretty sure that in his WTF poomsae books he performs a cresent kick during the w-shape block in Keumgang. I haven't seen anyone else perform it in this manner, I'm not sure though if this is just something that has changed over time, or if it's just personal preference.

    BigBoss This is me, seriously.

    To Stuart, the TAGB do and always have done there patterns different from AIMAA they did/do them the same way as the were when they left the UKTA and haven't changed.
    I'm not going off on one, its just something that becomes annoying. I actually couldn't care less about how people do there patterns, but if you are going to try and criticise you should have your facts straight. Perhaps Cho did change some things, but I bet not as much as Choi did, 4 new patterns, sine wave etc. So then you have to question which way is more like the way the patterns were done way back when!? Like I say I don't actually care, but people always go on about doing patterns the "traditional" way, so you have to question which is actually more traditional i.e. like the original way.

    Edit, I can't believe I have actually got in to a debate about how patterns should be done!!! *goes and frantically watches MMA videos*

    I'm presuming you means they in a general sense.. not me personally as I didnt criticise, but then neither did anyone else from what I read that why I didnt get why you got upset. But yes, I do agree with you about the facts, hence why I added my bit.

    Good point, though 4 new patterns is an addittion not a change.

    Again, good point, but again on the tread, where did someone even say that?

  14. I've tried and tried and tried to disagree with that opinion and to love the patterns, their applications, their hidden movements.
    But honestly cannot.

    It's useless. You can't learn anything from doing moves on thin air. If you want to practice arm locks and releases and whatever else, then go and grapple. See how much your patterns benefit you.

    What amazes me is how many pattern applications are against wrist locks.
    I think I'd rather learn to defend against punches to the head. If thats okay with tradition. And I don't mean high section blocks. :rolleyes:

    That made me laugh so much.
    But I don't think Chinese Martial Arts are any different. I've been to Open Tournaments, seen people slink around like Praying Mantis' make swinging circular movements and stabbing fingers.

    Then they get up and spar with roundhouse kicks and backfists.

    Ragnarok what is your view on shadow boxing then?
  16. I do a lot of it. Not strictly boxing. But practice sparring, practice shifting forwards and backwards, evading, sidestepping, doubling up leg attacks.

    If your argument is that shadow boxing is to boxing what patterns is to Taekwon-Do/Karate. Then just... don't bother. Really.

    Patterns are a big part of Taekwon-do. If you don't like them maybe you should be doing a different martial art like Muay thai or MMA. I just can't understand how one can practice Taekwon-do and hate patterns at the same time. I don't get it. :confused:
  18. Thats completely debatable.
    The best Taekwon-Do practitioner I have ever met, when I asked him, shrugged his shoulders and told me that he didn't see the need to practice patterns and only taught them because the syllabus says he has to for his students to get their Dan grade.

    Does that make him bad at Taekwon-Do? Should he practice a different art? - Him and one of his students have done a massive amount to aid Taekwon-Do's popularity. Especially in the UK.

    He's a 6th Degree by the way.

    That and .... ya know. I am doing other arts.
