comment Which kind of breath provides the most striking power?
In that case I recommend deleting everything after "can I generate the most power?" The second question isn't really the same as the first and the terms are poorly defined.

Could you define the methods of breathing that you refer to? In particular, I've seen it argued that "diaphragm breathing" is a nonsensical term, due to the fact that all breathing in the absence of outside help is caused by the diaphragm.

I recommend a thorough reading of Tom Kurz' material on this subject.

The fact that TKD has been around for centuries (if it indeed has, which is historically suspect) says absolutely nothing about the usefulness or efficacy of the stretching methodology in your TKD class. It's also likely that the stretching in said class is unlike the stretching done in TKD historically.

Do you have references on your list of "consensus" items? I've never seen anything about static stretching being safer than dynamic stretching.

@Shauna After trying both approaches, I hold that for a number of reasons it is sub-optimal to train for self-defense without competing. If it is self-defense one wants, MMA or judo plus boxing would be good choices.

@Shauna And I would argue that such discrimination would be beneficial.

@slugster Along with teaching skills, I would put "competition record" as way more important than lineage.

In judo, lineage is barely given any notice. You know your teacher, and maybe their teacher, but it's not given the ancestor-worship that's present in, for instance, koryu.
