The Art of Taekwondo
Taekwondo – the Korean Art of self-defence has become one of the most popular forms of martial arts worldwide. Taekwondo literally means ‘Art of Hand and Foot’ i.e. Tae Kwon Do. In Korean, Tae refers to the foot being used to jump or kick, Kwon means to use the hand and Do refers to the ‘art of the way’. So much more than just a self-defence program, as you become proficient in Taekwondo, you will be become a fitter, stronger and more confident version of yourself.
As You Progress
As a practitioner of the art, you will gradually progress from white belt beginner level through the ranks becoming fitter, faster and feeling stronger with each belt you achieve. As you become more skilled, you will be able to use punches, strikes, kicks, dodges and blocks for self defense and for enjoyment during class training. But the art is about so much more than just punching and kicking for self-defence. It enables you to get fit, have fun, build up the condition of your body and train your mind to be far more controlled and disciplined. When involved in lessons, you will release stress and tension whilst being shown how to perform powerful, synchronized hand and foot movements.
