About Us

This Taekwondo website provides free written & video instructions for WTF forms, ITF patterns, sparring, kicks, punches, breaking, etc. We also hope you will join our new community website. Meet other martial artists. Ask questions. Discuss forms, techniques, etc.

Taekwondo Animals is run by a family of black belts who want to share their knowledge freely with others. I (the Dad) run the website and the rest of the family offers advice… and frequent criticism. :)

However, if you are looking for the ancient martial art wisdom of a 9th degree Taekwondo Master or knowledge from an Olympic sparring champion then this site is not for you. We are just a bunch of regular black belts who enjoy Taekwondo. Therefore, this site is geared towards children, adult beginners, intermediate students, new black belts and Taekwondo families. This website began as a place where we could save the information that we learned during the week (i.e. our Taekwondo forms) and come back to them at a later date in order to get ready for our next belt test. Now, we want to share that information freely with everyone.

FYI - We run advertising (i.e. Google) on this site, use affiliate links (i.e. eBay) and have created an online store in order to help pay for the upkeep of this website (i.e. webhosting fees). Taekwondo Animals is a labor of love because we certainly aren't getting rich off this website!!!

Interesting factoid (at least to us) - The name of our website, Taekwondo Animals, came from a book that I wrote for children. The book focused on introducing Taekwondo to children (through the use of animal characters). However, since I couldn't find an illustrator for a reasonable price, this book was never published. Nevertheless, my family's goal of helping children (and adults) discover and master Taekwondo did not die… and the name Taekwondo Animals lives on as a Taekwondo website!

Given our interest in martial arts training, we also started Black Belt Wiki. We wanted to create a website where we could learn techniques that are not extensively used in Taekwondo (i.e. ground fighting) in order to supplement our regular training.

  • The Definition of Martial Arts How would you define a martial arts in 50 words or less? Try to make your definition cover all aspects so no martial arts style is forgotten (i.e. weapon-based martial arts). Don't look at a dictionary because the answer can be incomplete as there are ...

  • Functional Kata I have been working on the Ashihara Karate section of the wiki. I like how they break out their kata by function. Rather than some elaborate traditional kata with a huge variety of moves (i.e. kicks, punches, throws, sweeps, etc.) & hidden meaning/tech...
  • Dog and dog owner defense. Recently my 6 yr old was charged by a "friendly dog"... he ran into the street in fear. Thankfully this is a slow street. The owner is being a bag of snot. Saying "my dog never bit any one" and getting an attitude when I quote the leash and fence l...
