TKD incorporates a lot of kicking techniques but not all that much else, perhaps something focused more on Grappling, like Jiu-jitsu or Sambo, or with a greater emphasis on hand-strikes, for which Muay thai or even good old fasioned Boxing could be an option. Either way, if you insist on incorporating TKD into your style try and get a little coverage in areas TKD is sub-par in.

Can you compete in tkd with a black belts if you have a colored belt?

Okay, this is kind of a dumb question and I suspect that the answer is no. I was just curious if there is a way to, basically, earn the privilege to compete in the black belt ranks. Not to get a black belt, just to compete with them. I'm curious because I'm just starting in tkd, but I'm 18, have some home tkd training, some karate training, and some kick boxing training. But I never trained in an environment were there were belts. So i'm starting from the bottom, and I just want to get an idea of how long it will take to get to serious competition. Thank you for your time!

Is Tae Kwon Do for fun or to learn?

Well, it is for your enjoyment and for your learning of self-defense. I take TKD, and I have been in tournaments...which are both fun, and learn able. My Instructor says that "If you go, you'll learn things and get experiences that I cannot teach, you'll make friends, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!" So TKD is fun and easy to learn at the same time.
