What Is Tae Kwon Do?
Tae kwon do is an ancient martial art from Korea meaning “way of the hand and foot”, using both hands and feet. Hands are used to punch and block, as well as to split wood and bricks – at more advanced levels. Feet are used to kick, jump, and parry. The formal discipline of this martial art builds self-confidence for the student and teaches respect for others – fellow students, as well as the instructor.
Learn Physical & Mental Discipline
Expect improved physical and mental fitness levels from yourself or your children who are enrolled in our taekwondo classes. Each class begins with stretching, breathing, and meditation to loosen the muscles and focus the mind. Next, students practice a variety of martial arts techniques, drills, and patterns using the hands and feet to improve self-defense, physical coordination, and focus.
This type of martial art is a great workout for cardio and strength. Students punch, kick, jump, and practice coordinated movements that become more intricate as students gain knowledge and experience. Students also gain flexibility by learning how to stretch, enabling them to perform higher kicks, quicker strikes, and other advanced techniques. Students who take our taekwondo classes also learn self-defense. These moves can be very useful in evading danger and protecting yourself and those around you against harmful attackers. The physical and mental discipline acquired at our martial arts school enables you to advance in class, as well as in all daily activities.
If your child would like to compete in martial arts, we can provide the necessary training. Our founder himself has competed at the national and international levels. After studying Tae kwon do for two to three years, we recommend that your student take Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for a well-rounded foundation in martial arts. Talk to us about your child and his or her aspirations and we can develop a successful training program that adapts to them.
