Hi, I was wondering what everyone thought of weights training in Taekwondo. Firstly, let me clarify what i mean by weight lifting. The kind of weights i do are low vollume, high intensity movements such as heavy squats, heavy deadlifts e.c.t. This is geared towards maximal strength and power development, rather than size, like a bodybuilder would. I am not getting bigger, just stronger. I was wondering what kind of experience people have with this kind of training. I have done various martial arts over the years, and i find that when i did BJJ strength training was very highly regarded. When i did boxing, it was less so, but the people that did it where also the strongest hitters. In TKD, people seem to be reluctant towards it. There is one guy i train with that works out like a bodybuilder and is huge, but not particularly explosive, so im wondering if this is why people seem to think it doesnt help.
