I came unto this discussion late, but your point #1 is, in essence, the reason for practice for which kata/poomse/forms extend! Great point!

comment Weapons in taekwondo?
I was thinking about the relative youth of the modern art, but the art has its basis in centuries old martial arts. As far as the bo and kali, I find them and other "traditional" weapons to be natural extensions of the hand and foot techniques that is taught with taekwondo. As well, something especially like the bo can help taekwondo practitioners showcase the use of two hands (or the whole body) for all techniques.
