Tae Kwon Do is now the most popular Martial Art in the World. Originating in Korea it is characterised by its powerful kicks and strikes but also incorporates sweeps, takedowns and groundfighting to make it the complete style.
Tae Kwon Do is also an official Olympic Sport!
Tae Kwon Do is a traditional and practical martial art that translates literally as 'The Way of The Foot and Fist'.
However, Tae Kwon Do holds a much deeper meaning beyond that of its literal translation. It implies discipline of the body, mind and spirit. In fact, a way to a better life.
Contrary to what many will say, when taught properly and practised correctly, Tae Kwon Do is a very effective and practical method of self defence.
Tae Kwon Do is most definitely not a hobby or a trend. It is an ancient art form that is a way of life, promoting good health, conduct and strength of character.
Tae Kwon Do, as with any true martial art, begins and ends with respect.
Discipline, focus, perseverance and integrity are the foundations for which all practitioners learn and build upon.
