I imagine that Taekwondo players would be quite disciplined, and be quite fit and strong, but I find it a bit hard to beleive that a player who has absolutely NEVER played before would have the technical ability to score from every angle. I've seen players who just start out playing and are very good, but there must be a bit more to it.

I am assuming your friend is good at long balls that is why he can score from any angle but still I can't digest this.When I started football,I was good but nowhere near your friend.May be he is God gifted or just pure raw talent.who knows? :?

but the thing is, taekwondo is basically about learn kick techniques, how to kick hard and stuff, i also took tae kwon do when i was little and quit when i got my first black belt, and when i started to play soccer i remember that it was actually EASY FOR ME TO DIG PLAYERS OUT! it was also easy to shoot......... as time went by i gotten better better........ i dont know lol

I agree with you about Taekwondo will pronanly help because its mostly a kicking style of martial arts, ive done taekwondo on and off since i was little i would have kept on doing it if i hadn't injured myself but im thinking of going back once my knees sorted.

what level does your friend play at??? Rec, Tavel, School???I doubt that he is as good as you say he is....because to have pinpoint accuracy comes from years of practice with a ball.

JOHN_BOB HAS SPOKEN.

I took Taekwondo, and I swear I don't find any similarities between Taekwondo and soccer.

1) Taekwondo, your supposed to be loose when you kick (it allows you to keep kicking if you missed), and you don't kick a soccer ball with weak ankles.

2) You don't run in Taekwondo, you bounce around in a circle in an enclosed area

3) You kick up in Taekwondo, you'd get slapped by your sensei/master if you were kicking at the ground.

He definitely plays soccer. For many years he has atleast.

doing any martial art is going to help with soccer for a whole lot of different things; overall fitness, kick power, co-ordination, confidence etc

I read somewhere Ibahimovic did a kick boxing and taekwondo. the thing that most stands out is his flexibility. he can really strec his leg out to contol a long ball even if its really high up and infront of him.
tell me if im wrong, but it will help u with u agiliy and leg speed when running, especially with the ball. taekwondo works on ur legs agility, to be able to do fast and unexpected kicks, so as to not be blocked by the opponent. this will help u perform fakes and good direction changes when dribbling.
i did taekwondo, and it really helps ur enduance, i think, but mAybe thats just me.

watch his agility and precision. http://rescindedred.com/2008/12/08/ibra ... kick-pass/

but ustill need to practice FOOTBALL to be good at FOOTBALL
u cant be a god at something if ur new with it. i can help u though
