WHAT IS TAEKWONDO?
A modern Korean martial art is similar to karate. Taekwondo is a form of empty hand martial arts combat that requires the athlete to use all parts of the body in competition. Taekwondo is a self-defense discipline; the name is derived from the Korean words “tae”, meaning kick, “Kwon”, a punch or other blow with the hand or fist, and “do”, which is a way or method of operation. Among the general public, taekwondo is distinguished from other martial arts by its high speed, sweeping kicks, and emphatic punches. Taekwondo is a system of symmetrical body exercises or techniques designed for self-defense and counterattack in unarmed combat, making use of the hands and feet as weapons and defenses. However, Taekwondo is not merely a physical skill, it is also a way of thought and life.
Our Instructor and student also train in the Arts of Kickboxing and Muay Thai. We have combined several arts in our curriculum to give our students an edge and have them learn different arts. Our goal is to give a Hybrid Martial Arts that combines mainly Taekwondo and Kickboxing. We do add the basics of Jiu-jiujitsu also to work on ground self-defense.
