Type of Taekwondo Training
Some dojangs stress "traditional" Taekwondo training, some stress "point" Taekwondo training, some stress "Olympic" semi-contact Taekwondo training, and some stress "full-contact" Taekwondo training. Full-contact training is tough on the body and it takes a tough personality. Point training is similar to flag football. You get to play the game and get an ego boost without having, or ever having had, the desire or ability to play real football. Semi-contact and traditional Taekwondo allow you realistically test your skills on a daily training basis with little chance of serious injury. You should choose a dojang that uses the type of training that fits your personality and goals.
