    I and my friend took this Taekkyeon class and it was really great! We were warmly welcomed. The teacher speaks good English and gives clear guidance. We learned the basics of Taekkyeon and we are very happy with this experience. It was a good level, not too hard and not too difficult. Very much recommended!

    The class was a lot of fun! I learned a lot about the sport of Taekkyeon. The instructor was patient, and spoke a bit of English. If you are looking to learn a bit about Korean culture, I’d highly recommend this class. It’s located in Insadong, and is easy to find.
    The class was definitely great exercise! It’s a unique experience that everyone should try while they’re in Seoul! Don’t be afraid if you don’t have any experience! This was my first time, and I learned a lot!

    The class was very fun! We learned many fun new moves and had a great time. The teacher speaks a bit of English in case you do not speak Korean but even without it the class is very easy to understand just by following the teachers movements. I definitely recommend this class to any people interested in experiencing a unique aspect of Korean culture! Bring your friends to see who will win bragging rights for the trip! Haha ^ ^
