Tae Kwon Do

Tae Kwon Do is the official martial art of Korea. The literal translation of Tae Kwon Do is: TAE (kick); KWON (punch) DO (way). Tae Kwon Do is a way of life. It is based on the premise of peace through strength of the mind, body and spirit.

 The Art of  Tae Kwon Do

Tae Kwon Do commonly known as the art of foot and hand fighting. This martial art believes the foot is more useful than the hand in defending oneself against an opponent. In general, a leg is longer and more powerful than an arm. A combination of blocking, leg striking and hand striking techniques are utilized in defending an attacker. Tae Kwon do is internationally known for its vertical and horizontal kicks.

Tae  Kwon  Do’s Purpose

Tae Kwon Do is an ancient Korean martial art that was originally designed to provide a set of principles for life and a method of physical training that enables a student to develop their self-confidence, self-control and self-defense skills. Since the conception of  Tae Kwon Do over 1,300 years ago, there have been numerous improvements, but it’s purpose has remained constant. It continues to stress the growth and preservation of the student’s mind, body and spirit.

Tae Kwon Do training incorporates cardiovascular exercise, self-defense techniques, balance drills, calisthenics and several other physical exercises. Training can improve your overall physical condition, strength, and muscle speed.

Over 100 million students in over 150 countries practice Tae Kwon Do. In Korea, the Presidential Protective Forces are trained in Tae Kwon Do, as well as the Republic of Korea Army. Several other countries are also adopting Tae Kwon Do into the training programs of their protective forces.
