    Hey everyone!

    I'm interested in joining a Taekwondo class, but I'm a little bit unfit so I'm wondering if it'll be suitable for me. I've done Karate and Judo before, is it much different to those diciplines? I've always thought that it's a lot more areobic, but I'm not too sure where I got that from!

    Any info would be grately appreciated! Ta!

    My sis did it, you get fitter as you go along.

    Build your fitness up like you would normally... and do some strength and stretching exercises concerntrating on the legs.

    It's good - not too physically demanding to start with but if you get a good instructor it shouldn't be long before your capable of tackling the more physical aspects. My instructor placed great emphasis on stretches and once I had been doing them daily for a month or two I was able to kick someone in the face who was 6ft 5/6.
