Links

If you use a search engine such as Google, you will come across dozens of Taekwon-do home pages. Most of these are simply posters for specific schools throughout the world and provide very little detailed information about Taekwon-do. If you want to view these, click on the underlined Google above and type in “Taekwon-do”, or “martial arts” if you want to explore Web Sites for all martial arts.

There are, however, a few highly informative Web Sites for Traditional Taekwon-do, such as these:

Traditional Taekwon-do College
An organization similar to ours, primarily based in the Seattle area.  Mr. Johnson’s first instructor, 6th Dan Joe Gates, teaches at the Edmonds school.

TKDTutor

A cornucopia of information and knowledge about taekwon-do and other martial arts, from the perspective of a traditional taekwon-do practitioner.

Traditional Taekwon-Do in Germany
This very comprehensive Web Site shows just how international Taekwon-do has become. Based in Munich, Karl Steinberger has built this page in both German and English. It covers the first few Taekwon-do patterns, basic stretching and warm-up exercises and the objectives of taekwon-do. Also links to a Women’s Self-Defense home page, as well as to other martial arts information.
