Some students take Taekwondo classes in an effort to achieve one of the above goals, lose weight, get in shape, etc. These students will complain when a Taekwondo class does not concentrate on their training goal and will become unhappy with the classes if they are not achieving their goal. Realistically, their only complaint should be when they are not receiving top quality Taekwondo instruction. If the instructor structures classes to accommodate students with these secondary goals that are not directly related to learning Taekwondo, then he or she is cheating the students who are taking the classes to learn Taekwondo, and many of them will gradually drop out of the classes. Even if they do not drop from class, they will certainly not be achieving their potential in Taekwondo as soon as they should have.
So, if you choose to teach Taekwondo, then teach Taekwondo.
