is taekwondo trained differently in Korea then in the USA? what r the differences? i would like to discuss the differences between the way the USA trains in TKD and how Korea trains in it. in both combative and sport TKD.


The difference: in the USA, Americans do the training while in Korea, Koreans do the training. The way USA trains is that they train with fellow Americans while in Korea they train with fellow Koreans. Make sense isn't it?

for the forum guys who lock threads

last time i created a topic designed to single out a martial art, you moved it to a current general martial art thread.
im not sure if its allowed to be specific when discussing martial arts.i know you can when u create manga threads, U can discuss manga in general, or point out to a specific title- thats all im doing with this thread.I dont see why the same rule wouldnt apply. peace over war


TKD in the U.S. is basically a business, they try to suck as much money from your wallets as possible (hence the 10 "color stages" you have to go through to get to black belt) In Korea, they ony have 4 I think, white, yellow, red, and red/black before you get to black. Also, if you want to get a higher degree of black belt, you can't do it in America, you HAVE to go to Korea. I'm Korean so I know what I'm talking about, but I don't know too much about it. I personally think Kung fu is better though, those shaolin monks are crazy!

I dont think its necessary to go to korea to get the higher depgree black belts. Im korean, and i live in canada, and i recieved my black belt, 3rd poom/degree just a few years ago ( i stopped after T.T)

I will Start by letting you know my acreditations:
I am a second degree Tae Kwon-Do Black Belt,
I currently hold a degree in Kukkiwon(WTF) TKD and
Second Degree on ITF Tae Kwon-Do.

The WTF like stated by someone before me, have put a big emphasis on the sport of TKD, leaving the self defense part outside, both Styles have their merits, but I stuck with the Original Tae Kwon-Do as laid down by its founder General Choi Hong Hi. Tae Kwon-Do was developed by this man in S. Korea and was named by him, It was an art for the military and for self defense, It even was used for the Vietnam War. It is a very destructive art if practiced correctly. the ITF tae kwon-do has less mass aceptation bacause it is not a olimpic sport and since the death of the Founder it have split in 3 organizations that claim to be the "ITF". Aside for the political downside, ITF Tae Kwon-Do is very nice art to practice, and I will challenge you to become better.

I would recomend this book: http://www.akillingart.com/
That shows the story of Tae Kwon-Do in the way that is really happened and shows the Martial Art that it is.

I am part of the ITF under the guidence of the Son of the Founder.
Grand Master Choi Jung Hwa
