          Hi here. I am new to this board. Welcome me now

          Anyways. About TKD..and what not. First of all, I am a 1st Dan in WTF Tae Kwon Do. The school I come from, Practices the Tae Geuk Forms and Spar using the rules of the USTU and USOC. I however dislike the Sport aspects of Tae Kwon Do. I am in the belief of more traditional training. Including Martial arts free sparing, Practical Self defense and Philosophy. It all depends who you are training under. And I definately do not like the aspect of a "belt factory".

          I also have a 2nd Dan in Moo Duk Kwon Tang Soo Do. At the School I trained at, pactices the Moo Duk Kwon Pyung Ahn forms as part of our Regular Tae Kwon Do classes. Dual training in Moo Duk Kwon helps keep us in touch with more traditional techniques. While TKD continues to modernize it's techniques according to the current fads in tournements. Our MDK techniques are still drawn from analizing our forms and basic training.

          There is a 3rd art Hap Ki Do, which I dabbled with, sure sounds like a MMA school I went to? Sure, but each class was it's own. And no mixture to it. When you finished the TKD training, you had to go change your dobok (uniform) to the HKD uniform. And vise versa. The training was seperated as if it was 2-3 different schools using the same dojang.

          I am 48 years old, with 24 years of that given to the school above. I retired in 1997 from all activity, and moved to China in 2004, and where I live and work at, we have a TKD club..and I train with Chinese TKD students now. Some are sporty, but many are very traditional and like to learn TSD from me.

            Any physical activity can be included the realm of sports, this includes any martial arts. As a matter of fact, the old Okinawans often refereed to "Tode" or "Okinawa-te", or Karate as a sport.

            Taekwondo first and foremost a martial art. However, as with other martial arts, aspects of the activities can be participated in as a competition, which brings those aspects into the realm of "sports".

            This does not however mean that Taekwondo, or any other martial art can be divided into "sport" or "martial arts" areas.

            Today, competitions in Taekwondo and other martial arts have many types of sparring, breaking, forms, self defense, weapons, etc, types of events.

            There is the old Olympic Greek joke that all sports are games, but not all games are sports, it was meant to show the stupidity of those who would argue it!

            Don't fall into the sport vs martial arts trap, it's really a moot point, argued by those who do not understand either.
