TaeKwonDo, a well-rounded martial art that originated in Korea, combines combat and self-defense techniques with sport and exercise. It is one of the most popular and widely practiced martial arts in the world today, and has been a part of the Olympic Games since 2000. Training in Taekwondo is an excellent tool for physical fitness and character development for children and adults alike.
TAE means 'to strike or break with the foot'
KWON means 'to strike or break with the fist'
DO means 'method or path'
Thus, Taekwondo may be loosely translated as 'the way of the foot and fist'. The first two concepts, kicking and punching, are easy enough to understand. Taekwondo is distinguished from other martial arts by its emphasis on high kicks, including spinning and jumping kicks, and fast hand techniques. Taekwondo’s emphasis on kicks stems from the belief that because the leg is the longest and strongest limb a martial artist has, kicks have the greatest potential to execute powerful strikes without retaliation.
The Taekwondo program is taught by several qualified instructors.
