What would be better ITF or WTF???
Im gonna go with no TKD at all, if you want to learn a form of kickboxing try M.T
If you are new to martial arts i would suggest either judo, boxing, wrestling or bjj
I would try other stuff but I have experience with TKD and I'm doing it for the art and the workout. Just want to refine my kicks. I'm sure M.T. would be better in a fight.
Never to late to say pick up judo
/end nuthugging of judo
I am in Toronto and did TKD when i was young. I don't mean any disrespect but unless you have ties to the traditions etc, its simply too flashy to be taken seriously in terms of its combative worth.
this is not the place to ask about TKD
go to Black Belt World
Black Belt World Toronto founder, Master Tommy Chang, is a world renowned 7th Dan Black Belt, and was named one of the Ten Most Influential Martial Arts Leaders of 2004 by Martial Arts World Magazine.
also check out http://www.jongpark.com/ i went there when i was younger... it was neat... you would have to travel to the head office and do your patterns in front of a panel of judges if you wanted your next belt... neat stuff
also check out http://www.jungko.com/
this one is above a pho restaurant i frequent ....
lastly try out
i only cause it has a great name... how could you not wanna go to master sunny tangs school.
also check out Centre For Martial Arts http://www.centreformartialarts.com
the offer a lot plus if you chose to, they offer BJJ with sam zakula..... he teachs over at Xtreme Couture ... hes a brown under lamion ...
other then jong park i really dont have any first hand experence with any of this stuff... just killin time at work, but i would check out Centre For Martial Arts
My friend is a black belt 2nd den in TKD and even he has verbalized that TKD is a joke.
you stay in it long enough, you become a black belt. its a matter of paying for your belts
when i took tkd you could sign up for the black belt program... one up front fee gets you as much training you need till you got a black belt
pretty much a year later you walk out with a black belt....
sadly i didnt do the black belt program ... lol ... but it still would be cool to be a black belt in something... maybe
I'm a black belt in TKD, even taught it for awhile.
You can see how far it got me in my stand up game.
