Throughout the world, there are many traditional oriented Tae Kwon Do associations as well as many Olympic oriented Tae Kwon Do associations. Some organizations recognize both.

Gordon Conwell’s Tae Kwon Do program emphasizes traditional Tae Kwon Do training and methodologies. Again, traditional Tae Kwon Do emphasizes powerful kicking but also teaches a vast array of hand technique. Specifically, Traditional Tae Kwon Do teaches such exercises as Forms/hyungs (pre arranged sequences), target pad striking, board breaking (advanced students), sparring and basic two person defensive drills. It also teaches basic focus and breathing drills.

Gordon Conwell has also added a creative aspect to Traditional Tae Kwon Do by teaching creative drills; and by teaching the use of Tae Kwon Do techniques from a variety of self-defense situations. He encourages students to devise new ways to use their Tae Kwon Do knowledge for sport, self-defense, fitness and the art. Highly advanced students will also learn ways to apply their Tae Kwon Do knowledge to basic weapons (beginner students wanting to learn weapons should try out Kali).

Gordon Conwell has also implemented simple and basic elements of takedowns, joint manipulation, control techniques, pressure points, body holds, boxing, ground defense, weapons defense and multiple attacker defense. These additional techniques are to complement and enhance the Tae Kwon Do program.
