comment what kind of gym work out is necessary for a Tae kwon do learner?
Interestingly I do TKD bag drills specifically as my interval training. I pick a combo and run it at full strength and speed for 2 min, 30 second rest. I run each combo from each side and maybe three or four different sets of combos as my endurance allows.

@JuannStrauss Interesting. He seems to be doing a hybrid of the two I described, with his hips largely staying pointed away (even specifically mentioning this) but turning his foot so his toes point to the side. Thanks for posting that.

comment What are good martial arts for aging bodies?
Yeah, the research on basically all NSAIDs on strength training is all over the place. I feel like I've read a dozen papers in both directions conclusively proving that they do/do not negatively affect strength training.

@SteveWeigand I did read this before posting and I don't think it address this issue of foot orientation. As I re-read though, I do note that your distinction between spinning and reverse kicks might be worth noting above.
