Why does TKD disallow kicks below the belt anyways?
because TKD is just stupid.
I heard about some guy who trained MT (Muay Thai) went to train in TKD to widen his Martial Arts knowledge, and his 'Master' wouldn't let him use leg kicks - so he asked why? and he said because they're useless, so the student offered a sparring session to use his own MT and his 'Master' can use TKD - but he got kicked out because of it.
TKD guys are scared of leg kicks I guess, they're very effective. Also, the TKD stance is absolutely useless.
