Hi, skoonz. Welcome to TFL!

By "soft art", I wonder if you mean ineffectual? TKD has a bad reputation among many serious martial artists, but is considered a "hard" style.

Example of "soft" style: Tai Chi Chuan.
Example of hard style: Shotokan Karate.

Being "hard" or "soft" has nothing to do with working well. You should be aware that aikido can be used effectively, but its goal is spiritual perfection.
