Taekwondo is a korean type of karate and I have practice during many years.I will try to to answer all querries regarding this art.
I started this art when I was in the college in France and this during many years.This art is very good for the stretching of the muscles but also for the mental shrapness.
This is really an art because its movements are gracious.
It give me strenght and stamina.It also give discipline to all the practitioners.The body become more supples and you can practiv=ce this art everywhere.You do not need special equipement like for cricket.A simple pitch or the roof of your house is ok for practice.The belt system is not very important.
I encourage everybody to practice this art which is now an olymic discipline.
