They are completely safe, and beginners are strongly encouraged to participate! Poomsae is scored individually, while sparring is in teams of 3 people.

HTKD-open: This is for anything and everything else! Jokes, GIFs, meeting up for dinner, or secret-ish messages to that cute guy/girl. Please keep pubbing to a minimum.
Social Events: HTKD holds many great socials throughout the year! The first one is coming up soon; details to follow. This is a great way to get to know the people you’re kicking at practice, so be sure to come!
