Former Tae Kwon Do Student and UFC Champion Bas Rutten. Use your Tae Kwon Do techinques in a street fight. Not all techniques in this video are used in Tae Kwon Do and some are violent.
But you must remember if you are attacked, you must win the battle at all costs.
If you can resolve the conflict without a fight great, but don't stand there and talk when you are getting attacked.

ITF Taekwondo Patterns: Choong-Moo Tul

Choong-Moo was the name given to the great Admiral Yi Soon-Sin of the Lee Dynasty. He was reputed to have invented the first armoured battleship (Kobukson) in 1592, which is said to be the precursor of the present day submarine. The reason why this pattern ends with a left hand attack is to symbolize his regrettable death, having no chance to show his unrestrained potentiality checked by the forced reservation of his loyalty to the king.

Veteran's Day Tribute




Veteran’s Day Tribute


When America had an urgent need,
These brave ones raised a hand;
No hesitation held them back;
They were proud to take a stand.


They left their friends and family;
They gave up normal life;
To serve their country and their God,
They plowed into the strife.


They fought for freedom and for peace
On strange and foreign shores;
Some lost new friends; some lost their lives
In long and brutal wars.


Other veterans answered a call
To support the ones who fought;
Their country had requirements for
The essential skills they brought.


We salute each and every one of them,
The noble and the brave,
The ones still with us here today,
And those who rest in a grave.


So here’s to our country’s heroes;
They’re a cut above the rest;
Let’s give the honor that is due
To our country’s very best.


By Joanna F.

Bruce Lee's One-Inch Punch

Bruce Lee was trained in traditional Kung Fu Wing Chun. But was a student of All Martial Arts. He used elements from all arts and is the true father of MMA.

In 1959, James W. DeMile began his martial arts career in Seattle under the direction of the legendary Bruce Lee. As one of Bruce Lee's first generation students, Mr. DeMile had the opportunity of assisting Bruce in developing his unique fighting skills. It was also DeMile's privilege to appear in Bruce's only book, "The Philosophical Art of Self Defense".

Previous to training with Bruce Lee, DeMile was the "Duke" of the Capitol Hill gang in Seattle and an undefeated heavyweight boxer in the Air Force.

One of the foremost authorities on modern Wing Chun, DeMile has adapted Bruce's modification of the ancient art of Wing Chun and created WING CHUN DO, a practical self defense system. For the history and philosophy behind Wing Chun Do, see Way of Wing Chun.

DeMile has published many articles, appeared on TV and in the movies, written four best selling martial arts books, and produced a number of training videos, including "Bruce Lee's One and Three Inch Floating Punch", one of the most devastating strikes in the martial arts.

History of Tae Kwon Do

Tae Kwon Do was developed more than 2,000 years ago.

Tae Kyon is the ancient name for Tae Kwon Do.
Dynasties
Koguryo
The origin of tae kwon do in Korea can be traced back to this dynasty founded in 37 BC. Evidenced by mural paintings in royal tombs (Muyong-Chong and Kak Chu-Chong in the province of Manchuria). The tombs are believed to have been erected between 3 and 427 AD.
Silla
Silla was a dynasty founded some 20 years before Koguryo. In Kyong Ju, the ancient capital of Silla, there are two Buddist images inscribed on the Keum Kang Giant Tower facing each other in a tae kwon do stance.
Koryo
This dynasty was founded in 918 AD. Here tae kwo do became popular among the common people. During this dynasty, tae kwon do (then called Su Bak Do) was practiced as a martial art as well as a sporting activity.
Yi
In 1790, King Jung Zo ordered Duk Moo Kee to comprise a book making a tae kwon do form to train the military personnel. This is the only form that is strictly Korean. All our forms derived from Japanese Karate. In the 1900's, Korea was occupied by Japan, temporarily restricting martial arts practice.
In April 1955, a special board was formed to organize and coordinate the many styles of Tae Kyon and to give it a name. Tae Kwon Do was chosen because they felt it best illustrated the spirit of the art and it sounded very similar to the original name Tae Kyon.
In 1966, General Choi formed the International Tae Kwon Do Federation.
In 1973, Korea established the World Tae Kwon Do Federation.
On May 25, 1973, the first World Tae Kwon Do Championships were held.
