Welcome!

Welcome to the U-M Taekwondo Club! The UMTKD Club has a long and distinguished history at the University of Michigan, and remains one of the largest and most active clubs on campus.

If you're new or thinking about joining the club, we recommend reading the "About Us" and "FAQ" sections. The best way to find out whether the club is for you is to attend a club practice. Practice times for the current semester are listed in the sidebar on the right, and special events are listed on the club calendar.

If you have any questions, feel free to let us know.
