khell has a little shameless behaviour in the past
tkd is good for learning kicks.the old school kick boxers had much better kicks then todays kick boxers because they all came from a traditional karate style like tkd etc.so the kicks they learned from traditional style were a good tool ,but only if the tools were mixed in with more practical styles like kick boxing etc.its like having a good jab and right cross, they are great tools but if you cant keep someone from taking you to the ground those tools are useless.i feel the same about tkd. by it self i dont think its a real self defence, but as a tool you can add it to a more practical style and i think it can be a good tool to ad to youre tool box. the few times ive seen axe kicks in mma or k1 its been pretty good and messed some people up. but those guys were incorperating that into kick thai boxing etc.
