Weapons in taekwondo? Ask Question

I have trained weapons in a couple martial arts and I think that weapons should be a part of traditional taekwondo curriculum. For a particular school of taekwondo, they would not teach weapons as part of the curriculum except as an auxiliary lesson. If you went to the other martial arts of that same school, they did teach some weapon defense techniques. I know some taekwondo schools that do teach weapons as part of ranking curriculum.

As I do not see it in the WTF or Kukkiwon texts, is weapon training a part of traditions in taekwondo or is taekwondo technically a no-weapons, free hand-foot form?
