|| Taekwon-Do and the Internet

If you're looking to get involved in the Taekwon-Do community but you're unsure of where to start, then the internet could prove to be an invaluable resource for you to use in order to find a local club, coach, competitions, or just people to talk to about Taekwon-Do with. So what resources can you make use of? 

1) Local Groups 

It can be frustrating to feel like you're the only person in your area who is interested in a certain skill or topic, and even more frustrating when there's no way of finding out whether or not this is the case. Luckily, whether you're passionate about martial arts or partypoker, search engines will allow you to find local groups quickly and easily, and get in touch with them. 

2) Training 

It also means you're likely to be able to find training, or compare different dojangs with one another to ensure that your time and money are well-spent. This is important, as you don't want to waste time with a dojang or a group who are not going to help you progress in Taekwon-Do. 

3) Official groups 

The International Taekwon-Do Federation is an example of the officiated groups that are passionate about increasing awareness of and participation in this martial art. In order to join up with one of these groups, it's important to actually be able to find them first. The internet can even allow you to apply for events online, which is ideal if you're looking to save time or not risk using the post. 

There are also communities, social media groups, videos on YouTube - the Taekwon-Do community has benefited, like any group, from the accessibility, speed and convenience of the world wide web. Make use of it - you'll be surprised at just how useful it can be.
