A short essay about Yetbeop Taekyun

 

Whatever the reasons, after the Japanese occupation, taekyun was on the brink of disappearing.

Up until now, the restoration of taekyun focused on kyunlyun taekyun, the match.

As a result, taekyun match has become somewhat stable, so now I am concentration on yetbeop.

 

I enthusiastically adopt good training methods from other martial arts to yetbeop.

Simply because they have been proven and are effective.

I, however, still try to keep the identity of taekyun.

What is the identity of taekyun?

In large, the identity would be the use of footwork called pumbalki and using original techniques to throw down the opponent in standing position.

I know that some people look at me keeping the identity and adopting modern combat techniques to training and say “it’s a modification, it’s not taekyun.”

 

Is it wrong though?

I don’t think so.

I even think taking good training methods should be recommended.

As it is better than taking weird and unproven training methods.

 

Sometimes, such thought comes into my mind.

“How would taekyun look like, if it didn’t face the danger of disappearing and was descended to many people over a long period of time?”

 

I’ve come to a conclusion.

‘It would have taken in the advantages of other martial arts like now and developed itself.’

 

Koreans have quite an ability to embrace new things faster than anybody and to upgrade them to a whole new level.

 

In martial arts, taekwondo and hapkido are such cases.

Taekwondo was created based on Karate, but now it is a totally different martial art, and has become one of the best martial arts in terms of kicking.

It’s the same with hapkido.

 

 

Things are same in martial arts tricks.

In the beginning, Koreans followed after other people’s video and invited them to learn, but now Koreans are at the top of the game.

 

Also, it’s the same in MMA.

It used to be a league of foreigners, but now many Korean fighters are doing great in UFC, and fighters show great games in Korean pro-league just like in other foreign leagues.

 

There’s more.

K-POP, B-BOY and so on, Koreans accept what they think is good, and overcome the limitations.

 

Coming back to the original question, what if taekyun was passed down to many people?

I think its techniques would have crossed-over with other martial arts through exchanges, and with that taekyun would have developed on its own without the name yetbeop.

The important aspects in the development of martial arts are the exchange of techniques and the training methods that allow to use the techniques.

 

Many taekyun-kkun are leading the technical development by interacting with other martial arts, and I try my best to develop yetbeop taekyun through studying and teaching.

Encouragement and rational criticism, instead of condemnation without any reason, will help the development of yetbeop taekyun.

I will take such encouragement and criticism as nourishment.

 

Thank you.
