    Taekwondo ITF Training Log

    I haven't seen any Taekwondo log so far, so I thought it would be interesting for some to read one.
    Background
    Started Taekwondo (traditional, not olympic) training in 2007 at age 9. Had a 1 year experience in Karate before, but that didn't do much to me, because I was fat, uncoordinated and not athletic at all. At age 15 started weight training twice a week. At first it was bodybuilding style training, at 16 moved to powerlifting style training three times a week and Taekwondo training became secondary. At 17 started to take Taekwondo seriously again, but my strength and conditioning training became irregular (I just did some random strength exercises once or twice a week) for a half the year. Now I have great strength coach and consistent training plan.
    Stats
    Age: 17
    Height: 178cm / 5'10''
    Weight: 78kg / 171lbs
    Bodyfat: ~16-18%
    Rank: Blue belt with red tag (3rd kup)
    Goals
    1st - improve Taekwondo technique (I'm preparing for a red belt exam in next months (don't know date yet) and there will be at least 2 championships this semester)
    2nd - lose bf% (goal weight is 73-74kg)
    3rd - improve overall athleticism
    Training plan
    Monday - Taekwondo
    Tuesday - Light technique work, shadow box
    Wednesday - Strength
    Thursday - Taekwondo
    Friday - Light technique work, tricking
    Saturday - Strength
    Sunday - Rest

    We and our Taekwondo club coach are working on filming technique videos, so feel free to check our work on our YouTube channel [youtube.com/channel/UC5-8WjBuYB9J8ej0J-Vm3Uw] (channel main language is Latvian, but I've translated almost every name/description in English too).

    As someone who has done taekwondo throughout my teen years (5+), and spent a few years teaching, I can tell you it is a fukin joke. Most schools, even if they call themselves traditional, are total garbage and do not teach adequate self defense. Would not recommend unless you are just doing it for sport/fun and doing olympic style.

    I got to a pretty advanced level at 2nd dan- could do 540 hook kicks and more flashy kicks, and could also beat up on other kids in sparring that somehow had a 4th degree belt. I do not believe this has much real life application. The only chance in a street fight that I would say I have is by unsuspecting head kick or spinning back kick by total surprise- and after the first attempt it's basically useless.
    watchout your comments boyo ↓
