As was stated above: Training "smart" resistance training will definitely help. So will plyometrics. Above and beyond that, I would definitely emphasize flexibility and form.

As a reference, let me suggest the following book: The Complete Master's Kick by, Hee Il Cho. It breaks down individual kicking techniques, specific resistance exercises and stretch for each kick also. I know there aren't a lot of TKD fans on the forum now a days, but if you want to learn kicking skills you can't go wrong.
