iTaekwondo is a reference application designed to assist students learning the martial art of Taekwondo (Tae Kwon Do). The material in iTaekwondo is based on the World Taekwondo Federation style. All demonstrations in iTaekwondo are performed by David Vernon, Kukkiwon recognised 4th Dan Black Belt. iTaekwondo focuses on
the following aspects of this martial art:
-Patterns (or Poomsae)
-Self defence

All eight Taeguk and the first four of eight kukkiwon patterns are presented in iTaekwondo. These patterns are:
-Il Jang
-Ee Jang
-Sam Jang
-Sa Jang
-O Jang
-Yuk Jang
-Pal Jang
-Chil Jang

Details of the number of moves, meaning, belt level and videos are available.
Step by step view of all the patterns with the blocks, strikes, punches, kicks and stances described in both English and Korean.

The step by step view has an animated arrow showing the position and facing direction within the pattern for each step.

Pattern maps are available by rotating to landscape from the step-by-step view for each pattern.

Over 150 terms are available in iTaekwondo.
Terminology is supplied for different Taekwondo categories (such as body parts, stances, strikes etc) with the ability to translate all or individual terms within that category. English terms are displayed in black and Korean terms in red.

Audio of each term pronounced in Korean as spoken by a native Korean can be played.

Set self defence movements are provided based on the various belt levels. A description of the self defence movement and a video are available to assist in learning the self defence.

Big big thank you to Marcus Vinicius, 1st Dan Blackbelt, Instructor of Baby Barioni complex in Brazil for the Portuguese translation!

Please note, this program is not a replacement for proper Taekwondo training, it should be used in conjunction with a training schedule. Never use real knives when practicing the relevant self defence moves and use caution at all times to avoid injury.

On second thought


Great app! At first none of the forms seemed to match up as we went through white belt and I gave up on the app. Starting with yellow belt everything is exactly what we are taught and I have found the app features absolutely fantastic! Don't forget - turn your app sideways and you see expanded view of form positions. Now I don't have to worry if I forget a position when learning in class. It is all here; video, diagram, pictures, terminology.

It's Ok


I think that giving visual reminders is good, but I'd like to hear some verbal reminders too. Especially on stances. For example to say "hey make sure you got this back stance down on this form". Nothing gets you in a Tae Kwon Do mood like a little bit of nagging. :) The quality / lighting is a little poorer in some videos too. Otherwise I'm excited to use some of those defense moves on my friends! And to perhaps rejoin to world of martial arts one day. =^.^= Best of luck everyone!

This app is a wonderful resource guide for beginners, intermediate, & those who do not have money or time to go to a traditional dojang. Remember we are who we think we are; just because you go to a martial arts school means you know how to defend yourself when confronted. Taekwondo is a fairly easy art to learn & practice; TKD is made for the masses (train a nation for war). Thanks and I hope everyone reading this continues to train hard & smart.
