Taekwondo is for everyone, whether a you are a young 6 year old, or a more mature 60+ year old. It is designed so that even someone with the slightest build and musculature can defend themselves against the largest of attackers. It is the technique itself and not the build of the student that generates power. Anyone can do it, all you have to do is start.
