As a practitioner knowing the language is important.

TAEKWONDO LANGUAGE IS VERY EASY TO LEARN

Taekwondo has it’s own language and we use it everyday in class.

 

You will learn numbers and short phrases. As you progress through your belt levels, you will be tested on this vocabulary. Click a PLAY button to hear the number or phrase you want to learn.

 NUMBERS

During our warm-up period, we count; at first in English and gradually in Taekwondo language. You are not expected to know every number at the beginning. Learn one number for each form you learn. When you are a nominal yellow belt (white belt with a yellow tip,) learn number 1 for your test and so forth for each form after.

If you want to learn all the numbers so you can count a full set in Taekwondo language during warm-up, that is fine as well but you will only be tested on the number(s) for your form. You do not need to know numbers nine and ten but we’ve included them in case you wanted to learn through the count of ten.

Click on any play button to start the audio. TIP: click the play button on the number you want to learn repeatedly to familiarize yourself with the pronunciation. Wear headphones to hear it more clearly.
