Just as taking a couple techniques from TKD and using other styles when you fight more often than your TKD arsenal means you are not representing TKD.
I will concede to that point. Though, personally, I credit every style that I've practiced -- as it has done something for me. This is also because I feel like I use what I've learned in different styles in equal frequency. I use footwork and striking from TKD and boxing as I use judo and kickboxing for clinch work, and judo + submission wrestling on the ground.
