    In an Olympic sparring context, Taekwondo (a Korean art) is no longer dominated by the Koreans.

    The British, with their multidisciplinary approach to athlete recruitment (i.e. inviting athletes from other styles, namely ITF and kickboxing, to train and compete), has arguably made them the best team in the world right now.

    That may change post-2020 with the departure of Paul Green and Gareth Brown to USA Taekwondo in the last week or so.

    Mr. Smithfire I know all about how to guard using legs and hands I don't need you to go over how to guard. Please read my posts properly and ask me if you don't understand what I'm saying

    Many of us here have dan grades in Chang Hon TKD, and I think you're overselling the quality of head defence in ITF style
