Totally Tae Kwon Do

In Issue #31 of Totally Tae Kwon Do magazine you can read my contribution "How Do You Quantify Taekwon-Do?" (p. 13, 14). In it I ask the problematic question regarding how we measure the value of Taekwon-Do. Do we measure it by numbers? In other words, do we count the number of medals won, the number of students in the dojang, or the number of black belts in an organization? If not, do we measure it by students' ability to defend themselves, the positive transformation of their characters and living of the 'Do'? How would one measure such intangible things?

As always, there are many interesting reads in Totally Tae Kwon Do. One I plan to spend some time on is "The Cross-Limb 'Loadings' Rule Meets Weiss's Rubric" by Master F. M. Van Hecke.
