  • how to learn tkd

    well i want to learn tkd but as of rigght now i live in ga (for school only) and the only tkd place i have seen looks like a joke. its a ATA place. all i was in there was a bunch of laughing kids and AND adults doing sidekicks in a line and they were falling and giggling and such. I dont want to go to a place like that and the instructor was such a softee. i think that it should be fun to learn TKD but this was just not serious at all. all most like a daycare dor children. anyway i wasl thinking of getting a book or a dvd on the basic stuff BUT , I would realy want to have an experianced teacher shoe me the RIGHT way . the worst thing i can do is learn evrything WRONG. so how are the books/dvds out there?

    There are probably schools in your area that you dont know about. Hopefully these links will help.

          You should check Soo Shim Taekwondo Klubb out in Skellefteå, Sweden. That's a great WTF club with experienced teachers, and they really know how to teach some real self defense

            There might be a school near you.

            Do not judge too harshly the falling and giggling students...because even athletic people will feel clumsy in the beginning and giggling is the best way to deal with stumbling!

              I thought recovering your balance was the best way to deal with stumbling.

                The physical part, yes, the mental part (AKA embarrassment) well a good giggle works wonders!

                  I dunno, too many giggles and you'll end up looking like Cheech there, with a bong in one hand and a copy of UFO Weekly in the other.
