Like any martial art properly taught and properly practiced, Taekwon-Do is a non-aggressive and ethical system of self-defense.
Taekwon-Do developed from humble beginnings over 1,000 years ago and has since spread internationally to become one of the world’s most successful and popular martial arts. Its practitioners enjoy physical and mental discipline, as well as excellent fitness and the ability to defend themselves if necessary. Taekwon-Do is not only a combat sport, but is also a way of life for practioners around the world.
The word Taekwo-Do itself is made up of three Chinese/Korean words: Tae, meaning to kick or jump; Kwon, meaning fist or hand; and Do, which means “the way.” Loosely (if not literally), it can be thought of as “The Way of the Hand and Foot.”
While famous for its wide range of impressive kicks, Taekwon-Do also emphasizes breaking power, such as splitting wood and bricks using only the bare hands and feet. Training involves a variety of techniques, to include punching, kicking, dodging, jumping, parrying and blocking. Taekwon-Do also focuses on sparring and learning formal patterns of movement called tuls.
Taekwon-Do is for everyone of any age or ability, and there are many benefits to starting Taekwon-Do whoever you are – confidence, motivation, fitness, weight loss and a sense of personal achievement, to name but a few.
