  1. Love it & just ordered your book from Amazon. Keep up the good work! I searched your library of Youtube videos looking for any clips that touched on Taekwon Do & only found the second part of this video where you trained the TKD practioner for MMA competition. Have you come across any hard core Taekwon Do schools in your travels? I am curious as to whether traditional (or ITF style) TKD is popular in SE Asia. I beleive that there is a strong following in China and know that it used to be very big in Vietnam & I think Malaysia. I now that the “olympic” style is popular everywhere but my interest leans more toward the old school with full contact (or semi full contact) sparring and punches to the head.

    Thanks in advance!
