    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 ^ ^
