Just for the record, my mention of General Choi saying that 'only a few movements' of Taekkyeon ended up in Taekwondo is from a video interview with the General. He said it. I don't doubt that he may have had some exposure as a 12 yr old, but have to wonder how much of that would have been retained and then later added when as an adult he studied Karate (Shotokan) and then used that base to form Taekwondo. I would imagine (pure speculation) that studying a traditional Japanese art in the 40s or 50s, there would be zero tolerance to add in 'stuff from your childhood'. I would guess that more likely he came back to Korea, used Shotokan as the base, added some distinctive patterns (originally sourced heavily from Shotokan too), changed some names, invoked 'Taekkyeon' to appeal to the nationalists, and went from there. Is it possible that there is some Taekkyeon in Taekwondo? Absolutely. However, from my limited experience with both TKD and a bit of Taekkyeon while in Korea, that they really don't resemble each other much as arts from the way they move and generate power. TKD more closely resembles Shotokan in that area. So my take is that if there is any Taekkyeon in Taekwondo, then it is a bit of flavoring and color and nothing more. That's why I mention the video interview response of General Choi implying that there is very little Taekkyeon in TKD. Now, if those are 'rash generalizations', I would love to see some evidence for Taekkyeon in Taekwondo. From the ITF perspective, there are loads of references, both on paper and on video... I would love to see what you think are 'Taekkyeon' movements in Taekwondo. I know you have an extensive background in TKD so I truly would love to see some supporting evidence.
