Hey all. I have just started TKD (ITF). My mum and Dad met doing TKD, he made it to 2nd Dan and I would like to surpass him or meet him at least. I am 25 and at first thought I was too old to start but after a couple of classes and seeing the other guys I realise that this is in no way true. Flexibility is increasing weekly. I am new to TKD but not new to martial arts, I have dabbled in jeet kune do, bjj, Krav Maga, boxing and kick boxing as well as MMA and held a semi pro title (was taken as I could not defend due to working abroad) I am swiftly finding TKD to be a fantastically practical art that works great as self defence, in some cases better than Krav. I'm looking forwards to competing. I'm doing my first grading in September and hopefully doing a double grade as my experience is helping me learn fast and I hope to compete soon. So...... Hi!!!!
