Noo school is almost starting! I will very soon start having to pre write these so I won't lag behind too badly!

There IS styles of TKD (in case you haven't noticed) and because of the Internet I found some well known (not to me) styles of Taekwondo.

WTF TKD- World Taekwondo Federation is definitely not the first thing that comes to your mind when you see WTF. Anyways this is the taekwondo you would fine at the Olympics. In case you probably couldn't tell, the stances are short for picking your foot up or striking overall fast for sparring.

ITF TKD- Easily more traditional TKD with longer stances and more emphasis on good technique and slow kicks. International Taekwondo has a heavy focus on board breaking.

Then there is the ones probably more martial artsy( not a real word) sounding martial arts. I think I've already mention these martial arts, but Moo Duk Kwan was made by Hwang Kee. Then there was Chung Do Kwan in which Won Kuk Lee was the first to ever use the name.

Moo Duk Kwan is very different from Chung Do Kwan (the style in which I learn.)

This fact us way too long for a normal fact.
