Mademoiselle Northern Direction by forgottenpantaloons Mademoiselle Northern Direction by forgottenpantaloons
BEIFONG and TAEKWONDO desu
Toph being all KEUMGANG MAKKI. eyy lookit me using korean terms for blocks
Except apparently keumgang in the legit poomse/form uses crane stance and not this weird shit
so it's really not.

Applying Taekwondo education to art didn't work and not redoing it too much effort is required here
Je suis the epitome of vigilance at TKD

Keumgang symbolizes something about diamonds and being solid and tough and resistant so that goes along with rockbending
wait i mean earthbending
so that kind of makes up for the bad Taekwondo right
please

Enjoy Teen Toph (omg teen top kpop yes) rebelling against srs martial art forms, because she's the Blind Bandit and she...
ROCKS.
Also T. Beifong belongs to nickelodeon/micheal dante dimartino and Bryan Konietzko and co.

It was fun disgracing Taekwondo and shoving it into Avatarland let's do it again
But TKD is actually pretty awesome m'excuse svp

ok also this will sound really dumb but I've been meaning to ask for a while... what does "desu" actually mean?
Reply
:iconforgottenpantaloons:
forgottenpantaloons Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thanks man
and well desu really means nothing
people in animes
and i guess real life
just tack on 'desu' at the end of sentences to sound cute and happy and anime
then other people were like 'hey this desu-ing kid sounds like a chump why dont we add some IRONY into it'
'desu'
then tumblr was created and now here we are

ikr you need the shipping
no story is successful if no shipping
even business journals and science lab reports need shipping
'lab observations: When I sliced into the kokoro of the baby pig fetus before me, it screamed quietly as its eyes conveyed a heartwarming yet painful message. "Why... why oni-chan desu-ne... but i loved you..." it whispered with its last breath, eyes unblinking.'

wait just so we're clear apostrophe inclusion is not mandatory unless its something like he'll go to hell or she'll get a shell
because that would be a POOR USE OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

FUN FACT
hallowe'en is spelled with an apostrophe because it came from all hallow's evening or something like that
THE EVENING OF ALL THAT'S HOLY
so hallow even turned into hallowe'en which turned into halloween
isn't the english language neat

I have watched someone play skyward sword on youtube does that count
idk I prefer watching video games rather than playing them
so watching people's walkthroughs, especially if their commentary is entertaining, is what I try to do mostly
also this way I understand all these references

Annyeonghaseyo! 안녕하세요! (I can't speak Korean yet, sadly.)

The discription is hilarious!
The position is like half Kumgang makki and half Hadan makki, but the left foot is still wrong. ID
Depending on what form of Taekwondo you do, there are slight to big differences in how it looks.
(Taekwondo is awesome, that's true. I do traditional Taekwondo since two years and I love it.)

aw sorry but YEAH I CAN'T TKD GOOD
i can't grammer well either whoops
it was so awkward posing all TKD-like alone in my basement while holding a stylus and sobbing
anyway yesss!! i'm glad there's tkd dudes on dA ahah! what do you mean by traditional tkd? like are you not doing the regular kukkiwon business? ;O
Reply
:iconjullesweetblack:
JulleSweetblack Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012
Korean is another language where I can only speak a few words. Same goes for French, Spanish, Greek and Japanese.

No problem, I feel honored since people usually only see Kung Fu, Karate and Judo as martial arts.
I do grammar how my feeling says it's right. (Bad way of learning a language. /sigh)
I imagine that looking pretty awkward. :lmao:
Me too.

There's traditional ITF-Taekwondo (which I do), reformed ITF-Taekwondo and WTF-Taekwondo (the latter is with championships). I never heard about Kukkiwon, but since you live in America and Google says it, it must be WTF-Taekwondo.
The one I do is without any body-contact and - as the name says it - traditional, which means the movements, foot positions, ect. are really exact. You can be strong, but if you do it wrong, you will most likely hurt yourself.
And I personally like it that way. To me a strong mind, concentration and accuracy is more important than beating someone to the floor.

hahaah yeah there's always languages where I can't speak FLUENTLY but can understand snippets :D
greek?! woooow skills are you from greece? japanese oh my god 'SUSHI DESU NEKO SEMPAI KAWAII HAKU KARAOKE idk'
that is all, i'm afraid :X

really? huh, i never noticed :'D
since tkd is at least in the olympics i'm proud anyways even if it's not always considered a martial art.

ohhh, sounds cool. what's the difference btwn itf and wtf? other than the name sounding more legitamate and less offensive, ahaah :'D
I'm doing WTF, (and full contact after black belt D:) kukkiwon is just like a pet name we have for it, though it really literally means 'wtf headquarters' or something. And aw I live in canada! okay it's on the american continent and we're pretty much USA's best friend but we're colder in the winter ;D
I agree! ITF sounds much more authentic, because the frustrating thing about WTF is that the patterns/sparring techniques and such keep getting revised and little things change CONSTANTLY -- all the teachers teach different ways of doing things because they learned it differently @___@

That's great.
No, I'm rough 90% Austrian - not even partly Greek. (People often think my father's Greek since he has dark, curly hair, very suntanned skin and he isn't very tall. But no, he isn't.)
I just know the words for good morning, good evening, good night and the Greek alphabeth since years.
Arigato gozaimasu. Arigatou gozaimashita. Lisa desu. Some more words like adjectives, but that's all.

I blame films like Karate kid - which plays in China and he does Kung Fu/Wushu. WTF logic is totally missing.
Me too. And if they come to our center and see us while training, they will see that Taekwondo IS a martial art.

I think ITF is without body-contact or (probably) low body-contact (for reformed ITF) and WTF is with full body-contact, that's why protective gear is used. (Unlinke most martial arts we don't avoid body-contact because we don't like it, we do it because it's too dangerous and harmful.)
Yeah, that's right, Google said the same. I thought of America as whole America since martial arts seem popular all over the (two) continent(s). Hu, freezing. xD
That seems very confusing to me. I'm happy that here it mostly stays as it is.

austria's also really interesting, though I don't know much about it. except like mozart though he was from OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD austria. :T
hahah wow! that's still useful in some way, i mean so much english is pretty much greek.
Hahahah yeah how do you have legit conversations in japanese I CANT

oh man I know!! There was so much hype for the movie too... I guess the directors chose china because they wanted jackie chan to be in it. He is literally like China's hero he's EVERYWHERE there.

no-contact does sound harder though, because you really need more control and restraint. in wtf you just go all out and who cares if you hit them as long as its in appropriate places :D though in the championships i've went to, there are penalties for hitting to hard. :X

Yes, that's a while ago.
True. And if you know German, English and Italian like me, Latin turns a bit easier.
Me neither.

Jackie Chan is awesome. Oh yeah, he's everywhere.

The worst is when our trainer makes things like "Now we do one step." - but in very slow-motion.
Seems a bit un-coordinated and harmful.

ahahah yes
what's Kåsnudeln? hahah sorry I cna't even pronounce it augh

wow, that sounds so different. I've always thought ITF and WTF were pretty much the same thing, since there were these 2 ITFs in our dojang anyways and they didn't have different teachers or anything. Well maybe they had another class some other time but mostly we learned the exact same patterns and kyeu roogi :D
OH MY GOD SLOMO TKD
wait are the moves intentiionally meant to be done with like breathing and slowmo? shucks. Yeah, we tend to focus more on patterns training, and for sparring the big rule is just 'don't hit above the head' and 'try to survive' HAHA ;'D

Yes DragonCon in Atlanta, GA! It is awesome! Four day con too! instead of a three day >.> But ya, first day Iceica (roomie) and I cosplayed Female Dave (me) and Female John (her) (we actually forgot to get any pics of us that day, but they were great fun), second day Fem Karkat (me) and Fem Gamzee (her) (also great fun and there will be pics up in a week or so once my data roles over//the rp-ing for that was awesome too!), today we did some half-ass Fem John (me) and Fem Dave (her), tomorrow will be Fem Karkat (me) (I really enjoy ranting) and Fem John (her).

We've made a lot of homestuck friends too! There was a God tier John that was silly enough to just hand his Zillyhoo hammer to Gamzee so we got pics of me holding her back while trying to kill him with it (though I think those came out kinda blurry). Made friends with a God tier Dave that I will start correspondence with on Tumblr after con. Aaaaand now I think I've taken up enough space in your comment box, lol
