Why don’t we fight the way we practice our forms? Why learn all these traditional stances, chambering, reaching for blocks, etc. when in the end we fight like a kick boxer...if we fight like them why don’t we train like them? I feel frustrated because I try so hard to remember to chamber and to reach correctly. Is this because the forms practiced in ITF Taekwondo can not really be directly applied in a self defense situation
