What is Tae Kwon Do?

Tae Kwon Do began in Korea over 2000 years ago and has transformed over time to what we practice today. Tae Kwon Do translated literally mean “the way of the hand and the foot”. Designed as a nonviolent form of self-defense, it is an exercise in respect, discipline, and self-control.

Modern Tae Kwon Do is arguably the most popular martial arts in the world. A great way to improve physical fitness, self-discipline, and self-confidence. Adults and children alike can benefit not only from the physical side of Tae Kwon Do but also the philosophical side. Tae Kwon Do is an excellent pathway for the young mind growing into adulthood.

Improvements in stamina and coordination as well as increases in strength and flexibility can be expected with dedicated practice of Tae Kwon Do.

The philosophy, or “tenets”, of Tae Kwon Do are Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-control, and Indomitable spirit. These ideals join the body, mind, and spirit on a common plane. 

Tae Kwon Do is not only good for the body but for the mind as well. You can develop not just the skills for self-defense but the self-confidence to put those skills to use if needed. The goal of Tae Kwon Do is self-improvement.
