I was just what the term for TKD students is?

In japan, we use the suffex -ka eg. Karate-ka, Aikido-ka

I'm tired of saying "TKD practitioners"

Taekwondoist is the correct term.
the word "KA" is a japanese word.

Submission Fighter

I know -ka is japanese - thats why I asked the question

Taekwondo-ist cant be the correct word, as -ist is english.

I'm looking at Rushman here. I'm waiting j/k
