What is Taekwondo?
Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our body and mind. Today, it has become a global sport that has gained an international reputation and stands among the official games in the Olympics.
Let’s take a closer look at the meaning of the word “Tae” “Kwon” “Do.” It is composed of three parts as shown in the English spelling, though it is one word in Korean. “Tae” means “foot,” “leg,” or “to step on”; “Kwon” means “fist,” or “fight”; and “Do” means the “way” or “discipline.” If we put these three parts together, we can see two important concepts behind “Tae Kwon Do”.
The Taekwondo class schedule is as follows:
Monday, Wednesday & Friday
- 5:00 pm – 5-9 yrs old
- 6:00 pm – 10 yrs and above
This school year we are accepting new students, if you are interested in a free trial class, contact us today!
Our program has a strong focus on Taekwondo as a self defense martial art and a discipline of life. We teach and practice sport, but we recognize that the formation of values and the teaching of techniques that work in a real context are more important.
