I was asked a question which to be honest I had no answer for the student, He said Tae Kwon Do is oftern said to be sientific on web sites he visits, This I suppose he meant we use sine wave etc and theory of power as well as equalibrium in our art.
 
His question led to this question - Now that the general has passed is there anyone in any of the ITF's still sientifically researching the machanics of Tae Kwon Do, Also Who really has the right to make changes to the way tecniques that are executed as surely making changes to what the General laid down is changing his legacy and this intime will be the deviding factor between all the ITF's, So in short there will be three ITF ways whith many differences and which one you follow will be your choice entirely - But surely we should follow that of the one which has been laid down by the founder prior to his passing over.
 
What do you think - Its a valid question who is researching the art if any? Who has the right to make changes to it, if it detracts from the original tecniques taught by the late founder?
 
Personally I have seen G.M.Choi Jung Hwa and like his vision so we follow him.

Hi Chris,
 
We have a Scientific Research Committee, which are currently preparing an in depth report on the Tuls. They are charged with investigating / confirming any development within Taekwon-Do and will liaises with President Choi on there findings.
 
If you require further information on this committee you can email the chairman from here
 
On a personal note i feel that my Taekwon-Do is constantly evolving as i am always learning something new Smile
