    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    First off it's non-profit, no charge, zippo, cupput, well except for a $15.00 a year payment per student to help pay for insurance. No patch's, no union's no bullshit, just Tkd.

    There focus is to teach and share the art that many have defaced in the name of profit.
    Rarely to you find men and women of such charactor who are willing to devote there time to the continueses teaching, training and advancement of an art.

    SeJong is not by no means a belt mill or McDojo. For your belts and rankings it's simple, you either know your material or you dont. Pass and Fail.

    Another advantage of this system being free is that there is no pressure on the instructors to pass you, after all what are you going to do, stop your tuition payment if you fail.

    Sejong is Free, no patch's, no unions or assoc. just TKD as it should be taught.

    I have trained with Master Ameris on several occasions. How I know him is not important. If you really want to find out, there are threads devoted to that here.
    May I ask you to provide me with those threads ?

    Sharkonis, you need to start talking about what the content of the teaching is and stop nutriding your people's good character and charity.

    Just use the search function. Out of respect for those involved, I try to avoid name dropping.

    Good to hear. What makes the system (not the org) different from other styles of Taegwondo?

    How similar is it to AIMAA TKD?

    My daughter has been taking Sejong TKD for a year, but with a different instructor. In that time she's maintained pace with the rest of her class and progressed to a belt rank of gold stripe.

    I have no personal MA experience and do not pretend to be an expert.

    Key differences between Sejong and other TKD schools in my area:
    1. You start at beginner with no belt
    2. Elements of Aikido are taught to add a soft element
    3. Sparring is no-contact
    4. No weapons training
    5. Belt tests are every six months
    6. Board Breaking occurs at belt test but does not affect Pass/Fail rather is for confidence building
    7. No kid black belts.
    8. Instructors are addressed as Mr. and Mrs. (Master Ameris is the only exception to this).

    That sounds amazingly like every other TKD I've ever encountered.
