Yes, Tae Kwon Do is a very good martial; however, if you are

trying to choosing a marital art to study yourself, the more

important consideration is the quality of the instructors. There

are good taekwondo instructors and bad taekwondo instructors. Shop

around and find a great instructor.

Another factor is whether you want to learn a more offensive

martial art or not. Tae Kwon Do was made for defence. It can be

using in offence, but there are many close contact techniques that

will help you defend yourself. Karate is a more offensive form.

Tae Kwon Do also uses more of the feet than other martial arts.

There are many forms of kicks. There are less hand movements. The

hand usually only do punches and blocks. They have a few other

movements that are not used often.

Doing Tae Kwon Do also helps you think. Your mind seems to work

better after starting Tae Kwon Do. This may only be the case for

some people. It may improve concentration and memory. But this may

not happen in all cases.

All in all, Tae Kwon Do is a good martial art.
