Many TKD students take up Taekwondo late in life. It really is never too late. this is the first day in the rest of your life, and every epic journey starts with the first step (outside the house). To study Taekwondo, and any martial art really, you will need Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, and Indomitable Spirit. Or in other words, be polite and bow, be honest with others and yourself, don't quit no matter what, exercise control both physically and mentally, and never give up -never surrender
