Taekwon-Do is not only about Patterns, Sparring and Breaking. It is also important to learn the terminology of those fundamental moves your Instructor shows you. You must also study the History of Taekwon-Do to understand where it came from and to show respect to those who teach you.

The RITA has worked hard to keep it's members up to date with the teachings of General Choi and the handbook allows you to study outside the dojang. Remember your Instructor is there to answer all you questions so be keen to learn.
