I'm a big fan of taekwondo. Actually, I'm a big fan of a lot of martial arts. But as far as taekwondo goes, I think it's awesome. I don't practice it myself but I have a friend who does and and I've seen him in action with other students. And the things they do are pretty amazing. I mean the demonstrations alone are pretty fun to watch. Aside from aesthetics, it's also good for your health. Like you guys said, it's good for cardio, flexibility, endurance, etc. I've talked with people who are not believers in this martial art. They say muay thai is better, boxing is better, and so on. But we just can't see eye to eye. I mean just look at the ufc. Lots of fighters there are taekwondo practitioners. Anderson Silva(middleweight champion) and Stephan Bonnar(ultimate fighter 1 finalist) just to name a few. Lots of people say that it's a weak martial art but come on. Taekwondo has been around since the 1950's having its base from the South Korean Military. It wouldn't last this long if it sucked. I don't know about you guys. But I wouldn't want angry South Korean soldiers doing crescent kicks, spinning back kicks, roundhouse kicks, and any other kicks going my way.
