I've studied Jidu Kwan Tae Kwon Do for just about 5 years. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking for a self defense martial art. The self defense our school uses is based on Hapkido and Ju Jitzu with very little kicking.

TKD is pretty much feet. There's not too many people who can use it as an effective self defense. But for an all around work out it's really good.

I like it for competition. I've won quite a few against Karate practitioners because they weren't used to all the junping and spinning we do. Then again, I've gotten my ass kicked at the US Open 2 years running because the more experienced guys know how to slip in when I'm up.

But it's like anything else, it's up to the instructor to make it good.

I studied TKD for 5 years too. I'm thinking about getting back into it.

Here's a martial arts forum that's just getting started. Thought you guys might want to check it out.

I like that site. Of particular interest was the edge hand knock out points.

Eight years Tang Soo Do with Chuck Norris, Pacific Northwest Team Captain for three years, won Western States Championships for two out of the three. Then I began the long journey from "Samurai to Swordmaker". Any of you hotshots want to pick me off, please know I can get hit as hard as anyone you ever knew. The only style of martial arts I have any desire to further study is Monkey Stomping!
