    I have no problem at all with kids/young people doing acrobatic/wushu-type forms. What I have a problem with is when they enter the traditional divisions, and the judges score their form higher than...

    TBH, I’m always much more impressed by a good, solid traditional form, performed to near-perfection by a seasoned practitioner, than all the flashy acrobatic forms in the world. I’m pretty sure that...

    Chinese ghost stories/movies have never creeped me out.

    Now, some of the Japanese ghost movies from several years ago were pretty creepy.

    Gene,

    It probably wasn’t her TKD she used, as the description of the fight is that she “started throwing punches.” More likely she was using her boxing or karate training. Older-style (ITF?) TKD...
