May depend on context. If I were to do a "Taekwondo" class at my BJJ gym, it would be entirely focused on kicks, with a heavy emphasis on spin kicks and head kicks.

I'd leave the handwork to the Muay Thai class and grappling to BJJ. I'd also probably skip forms and belts.
True, I was taking it in the context of joining a particular school to learn that art vs MMA.

So if you were to teach Taekwondo at your BJJ gym in addition to the other stuff you teach, somebody who wants to mostly just work on kicking techniques would probably just sign up for the Taekwondo class.
