There are many Taekwondo organizations around the world. New ones are founded every year, and others fade away every year. Take care in chossing the organization you choose to affiate with for it may not be around a few years from now.
Although the numerous Taekwondo organizations makes choosing a Taekwondo dojang complicated, especially for prospective students, things are not as bad as they seem. Compared to most martial arts, Taekwondo is remarkably unified and well-structured. In roughly the same amount of time it took Taekkyon to become Taekwondo and split into two styles, Shaolin Kung-fu evolved into as many as 1,500 different styles. Students must research the different organizations and choose one that best fits their needs.
Taekwondo continues to grow and change and add new techniques.
