Hi guys,
I am 28 and I am interested in learning some type of martial arts...

Can someone tell me the difference between Karate and Tae Kwon Do?


I live in Boston


Thanks

The basic difference between Karate and Tae Kwon Do is country of origin.Karate was originated in Japan and Okinawa while Tae Kwon Do was originated in Korea and people use hands more in karate but Tae Kwon Do players do the use of foot more than hands otherwise there is no difference between them.

Solid post...[ten times better than what babbled about]!!



Actually, TKD's beginnings are in Shotokan Karate. So, while TKD is said to be indigenous to Korea, it really began with the Korean masters that learned Karate first, and then began to make changes in training manners, and emphasizing the kicking more, a la the old Taek Kyon game.
