Can we get the traditional Taekwondo back? The kukkiwon has some good plans. What do you think? Would it work?

Recovery of Kukkiwon-Style Taekwondo (the authentic Taekwondo)






The WTA (World Taekwondo Academy) under the Kukkiwon will train the authentic Taekwondo. Therefore, it is preparing a new traditional Taekwondo program which will be consisted of Poomsae, Gyeorugi, Gyeokpa(breaking), Hosinsul(self-defense), the fundamental techniques(kicks, blocks, punches, and strikes), discipline, self-confidence, respect, etiquette, and justice.






Nowadays,  the function of martial arts Taekwondo is fading away but Taekwondo is only distorted and developed as a sport. Let all grand masters and masters should practice the traditional Taekwondo.

  1. My children attend a school that teaches the importance of TaeKwonDo as a way of life and not just a sport. Master Hart is passionate about the impact he makes with our children and how that takes effect in their lives. I agree that TKD should always be more than just sport!

    2. I prefer the OPs comment. Abolish the monstrosity that is WT and just have the true traditional ITF.

  3. Traditional Taekwondo never went away. It's still there. It's just not visible because practitioners don't compete.
