Kane said:But will training under more traditional TKD still help prepare me for Olympic style TKD? If traditional is more tougher and more full contact than olympic style, I still rather do that but will it still prepare for TKD tournaments olympic style as well?
Let's cut to the chase, practicing any TKD is better than nothing. If what you are looking for is Olympic style TKD train in Olympic style TKD. It's kind of like playing softball and then playing hardball. It's still baseball just with different twists, timing and rules.
