Korean Terminology & Theory
In most Tae Kwon-Do schools – even outside Korea – Korean language commands and vocabulary are often used during classes. Korean numerals may be used as prompts for commands or for counting repetition exercises. Tae Kwon-Do terminology is based on the Korean language, however some words were developed specifically for Tae Kwon-Do, and do not appear in the Korean vocabulary. Using these terms enable students to train anywhere in the world, over coming all languages difficulties. This area of the West Midlands Schools of Tae Kwon-Do (WMST) website is designed to help you with your training and provide you with the relevant information required for each grading from white belt all the way through to black belt, including general class and line work exercises, patterns and set sparring. You will also find a lot of other useful information and resources (more coming soon!) here to help you get the maximum benefit from being a student Tae Kwon-Do.
