Olympic Sparring Disappointing to Watch
As an ex Taekwondo enthusiast , I found it quite embarrassing to watch Olympic Sparring...
Bunny Hopping together,with the odd brave move to throw a simple kick, with no combination of moves..
I'm surprised they didn't exhaust themselves with all their hopping up and down.
This may sound a bit harsh, but for anyone who has practised any martial art, it was like watching yellow/ green belts having a non aggressive spar...(The referee constantly having to tell them to fight ).
I was shocked by the standard, it had no relevance to the Taekwondo I used to practise.
Unless Taekwondo steps up to the mark, and truly embraces the spirit of Sparring at a much higher level, I can see no future for the dancing show I viewed with this London Olympics..
