International visitors hoping to experience this time-honored tradition are encouraged to check out the Namsangol Hanok Village taekwondo experience program, run by the Seoul City Government.

The program teaches the basic forms of Taekwondo, self-defense techniques, and wood-breaking. Classes are run three times a day on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
