TAD Club (WTF), Canoga Park, CA
Recently, I joined the TAD Club, which is a Taekwondo (WTF) club.
Here's my asssessment...
Aliveness: Offical WTF rule for sparring. The head master is gold medalist (sparring) for regional, LA Open, and CA Open - LA Open and CA Open are two major competitions for WTF in California. Many members have competed in regional (primarily Camarillo Mayor's Cup) prior to joining.
Equipment: This club was opened about two months ago, so equipments are brand new. Club members also bring their own kick pads and shields so their are plenty of equipment for any type of (Taekwondo) practice.
Gym Size: Very decent; plenty of room to run around (especially needed for any Taekwondo performance practice).
Instructor/Student Ratio: About 20 members with one head instructor (4th dan), and 4 black belts (all are certified by Kukkiwon).
Atmosphere/Attitude: High energy and highly disciplined. Striking Instruction: Majority of practice is gear toward sparring - very competition oriented.
Grappling Instruction: Not taught.
Weapon Instruction: Not taught.
