Korean Terms
The terminology for Tae Kwon Do is described in Korean and English and knowing the terms is part of the syllabus. Below are some of the terms that you will get to know. Note though that you do not have to know all these terms straight away! There is a syllabus guide book that gives you information on exactly you could be tested on each grading.
The reason it is taught in Korean is so that where ever you go in the world you could take part in a Tae Kwon Do lesson and not need to know that countries language.
