Just curious on the ratio of old vs young tkd players here.
I'm old, 47.
Being 35,that inspires me.I m still waiting to see if theres any 60+ folks out there cuz I plan to be still kickin at that age .
From 6 to 60, I think the poll will reflect more about MAP than TKD
Thats why I labeled it tkd and put it in the tkd forum.I am hoping mostly tkd people will answer.I know theres 60+ year olds doing tai chi,but a style like tkd at that age is another story.
TKD Teen (17) enjoyin every minute of it.
And I was talking from a TKD point of view, it is marketed at all ages, and makes allowance for age, 6-60
Im glad you class me as a young adult
I still make it into the "young adults catagory for another year. Haven't been called a young adult in ages...good for the old ego.
I’m 19 but feel 60, does that count?
Ah hell, I feel like a dirty old man who just happens to be a young woman. How’s that for an identity crisis.
I think that there are more kids than adults practicing TKD, but they probably won't post because kids watch TV and play XBOX.
i'm 18. but generally, all the higher belts are either older or younger than me. the only other 18 year old in my club is a green belt too, and we got promoted the same day...
in any case, they did a hapkido seminar here some months back. 60+ year old master, who's name escapes me atm, 8th dan in TKD, and 7th in hapkido i believe. and he's still built like a tank. that man could give any 25 year old a run for their money.
20 but i see people anywhere from 10 to 40 at my dojang.
I'm mid 40's but my original instructor is still teaching in the West Midlands and he must be well into his 60's now.
Probably still kick my **** as well
I'm 27, I'm a young adult
I'm thrilled to hear I'll be classed as a young adult for another 15 years
Just in my family alone, those who practise TKD are from different age groups:
Cousin - 10 years old
Sister - 14 years old
Fiance - 22 years old
Me - 24 years old
Uncle - 46 (?) years old
Mum - 49 years old
Still working on my grandmother....
15 years, you make me sick
Im 26, soon to be 27, but am thrilled to be a young adult!! Calling myself 'young' in anything seems like a lie now. Trust me, there is no career guaranteed to make you feel old faster than teaching.
Don't know if it makes any odds, but I trained in a seminar with Grandmaster Kong of the ICTF, and was asked to kick him for demonstration purposes. I think I broke my foot. He's knocking on 70 and is as hard as the proverbial iron nail carrying armour plating. Thats my goal.
I'm 36 as is my wife. My son is 13 and trains. My daughter is 6 and also trains (she's a little hellion in the ring ). We've also got my new foster son training. He's 10 and has some developmental disability issues...but really loves it.
