    I wouldnt worry about "the rules of combat", theres no way they will want you to just start sparring, everything will be explained to you about the rules and such before you do it.

    Think of this just like your first ever karate lesson, over again.

    Your right in thinking things will be different, but you'll be shown everything you need to know, and im sure you'll pick up everything very quickly.

    Good luck in this new club, and i hope you enjoy Tae Kwon Do.

    If you do decide you like it and your gonna become a new TKD practitioner, please let us know and dont forget to drop by the TKD check in thread and let us know aswell.

    Hi kyoku

    Easy answer, ask them when you get there. TKD club sparring is usually hand and foot strikes to the body and head, no grabbing, no kicking to the legs. But clarify the particulars with them when you start sparring. Start gently and see how you get on.
