taekwondo

Tae Kwon Do is a Korean Martial Art that is practiced all over the world. Literally translated, the Korean word "Tae" means to "kick with the foot". "Kwon" implies "a hand or fist to block, punch, or strike". "Do" means an "art" or "way". Thus, "Tae Kwon Do" means, "the art of kicking, blocking and punching". While similar in some ways to Chinese Kung Fu or Japanese Karate, Tae Kwon Do's most prominent feature is its emphasis on dynamic kicking.

Through disciplined training, Tae Kwon Do improves both the mind and body, placing great emphasis on the development of personal character. Students are taught that self control, self discipline, kindness, and humility must accompany their increased physical strength and ability. Tae Kwon Do is not merely a physical fighting skill; it is also a way of life.

In addition to being a effective form of self defense, Tae Kwon Do is also practiced as a competitive sport which is now even an Olympic event. Well defined rules have been established that make Tae Kwon Do sparring one of the most fast-paced and exciting competitions you'll ever see. While participation in competitions is completely optional, a fairly large number of our students, both adults and children, do choose to compete in local and national tournaments to put their skills to the test. In addition to sparring, most tournaments also typically involve poomse (sets of pre-defined movements against imaginary opponents) and board breaking.
