About Tae Kwon-Do

"Way of Foot and Fist"

Translated from Korean, Tae means to jump, kick or smash with the foot, Kwon means to punch, strike or destroy with the hand and Do is art, method or way. Tae Kwon-Do refers to a Korean fighting system which uses hands and feet to deliver kicks, punches, strikes and blocks to defend yourself.

Tae Kwon-Do is rightly called a “martial art” because it has actually been employed by the Korean military. Even in these days of long range weaponry there are times when the soldier engages in hand to hand combat and it is under these circumstances that Tae Kwon-Do has proved itself effective.

Tae Kwon-Do is also an exciting combat sport in which skills are tested in rigorously controlled competitions.

Tae Kwon-Do is an excellent way to improve fitness, flexibility and self confidence for adults and children alike and is a superb form of self defence. Tae Kwon-Do is safe, practical and most of all enjoyable.
