    If there is a Korean art in a chinese City... I would assume you can find something else. Look harder grass hopper!

    For somebody who was only a yellow belt, teaching is pretty ambitious.

    What are you looking for in a martial art? Is it just to stay in shape? Or do you want to learn how to fight?

    Take wrestling. It's free and will help toughen you up more so than TKD where thus far you have learned forms!

    Here's my advice when looking for a school:

    *Since you're looking to become a better fighter, make sure the people there spar with hard contact frequently. Resistant drills are good, too. One really good sign of a place that teaches you how to fight is whether or not they train fighters.
    *I'd hesistate to get into any long contracts until you've spent a good deal of time with a school (~6 months to a year). You might love something initially but then turn out not to like it very much. Personally, any forced contract is kind of a turn-off for me, but there are good schools who have contracts.
    *Some people are pro- forms and some are against them, but most would agree that a school that focuses on forms more than they do sparring might not be the best place to train.
    *Beware of any outrageous claims! Do some research on the instructors to see if you can find a way to validate what they've claimed.
    *Look for the quality of instructor more than a specific art. A bad instructor in a good art isn't going to be as much help as a great instructor.
