Totally Tae Kwon Do magazine is a brand new, free, online magazine about to be launched across the internet. The magazine is totally free to read, distribute, copy, print and download.

It’s a magazine dedicated to all aspects of the martial art of Tae Kwon Do, arguably the worlds most popular martial art and Olympic sport. The magazine will cater for all styles of the art, with all areas included (from self defence aspects to sport).

I felt it was time that we, as students of Tae Kwon Do had our own magazine that covered things we wanted to read about. I'll post futher details soon, but in the meantime, why not have a look at the magazines web site: www.totallytkd.com

I gotta say, I'm pretty excited about it. The depth of articles in the first issue is amazing. I hope you`ll be excited as well and just to wet your appetite heres a (sample) picture of the first ever cover.

Looking forward to it. As mentioned, just more of the great work you are contributing to the art.

I agree, a new initiative like this is one of the things TKD badly needs. And not just TKD, but the MAs in general. Most MA magazines have become little more than collections of product placement adsever notice how Black Belt and Taekwondo Times articles invariably match up with a one- or two-page advert somewhere in the issue? They've really become little more than supply catalogues and commercial directories. The Web is providing the lead now in supplying real content, and I'm willing to bet that with the decade we're going to see the demise of BB/TKDTimes type print rags. It's too bad that some really high quality periodicals may go down as wellJAMA and Classical Fighting Arts look to be in serious trouble. But the need for real information is still there, and magazines like Jissen and Stuart's new enterprise look really good for filling that need...
