This was a truly incredible experience! I managed to convince my brothers to give this a try because I was so excited, and we were not let down. The instructors were friendly and knowledgeable, able to introduce my non-martial artist brothers to the techniques as easily as they helped me to overcome the sheer differences in our styles (I come from a more linear, direct-striking martial arts background). In short, fun for all different levels of interest and background in martial arts!
The regular students were warm and inclusive, and the instructors mixed hands-on instruction with light introduction to theory, making for a class that was just as engaging mentally as it was physically.
At least one of the two I brought along is now considering pursuing a Taekkyon class in his area. I would recommend the experience to everyone!
My husband participated in this and really seemed to enjoy it. Instructor taught very well and was so friendly and easy to converse with. Did a great job explaining things.
Two things to be aware, it was a bit confusing to find, hidden behind a restaurant, and when done my husbands hands were a bit swollen from hitting the pads (and he has a pretty high pain tolerance, if that gives a good indication of it). But again, it was a unique and fun experience!
extremely through and friendly
The class was a lot of fun! I learned a lot about the sport of Taekkyeon. The instructor was patient, and spoke a bit of English. If you are looking to learn a bit about Korean culture, I’d highly recommend this class. It’s located in Insadong, and is easy to find.
The class was definitely great exercise! It’s a unique experience that everyone should try while they’re in Seoul! Don’t be afraid if you don’t have any experience! This was my first time, and I learned a lot!
The class was very fun! We learned many fun new moves and had a great time. The teacher speaks a bit of English in case you do not speak Korean but even without it the class is very easy to understand just by following the teachers movements. I definitely recommend this class to any people interested in experiencing a unique aspect of Korean culture! Bring your friends to see who will win bragging rights for the trip! Haha ^ ^
