TAEKWONDO is Back on
Building Strength, Confidence, Compassion, and Leadership through Martial Arts.
Taekwondo is the Korean art of self-defense. Literally translated, TAE means kick or to strike with the foot, KWON means fist or to strike with the hand, DO means discipline or art.
Beyond the physical aspect of the martial art, it is designed as a non-violent practice and system of complete body exercises as well as being a way of life. It includes physical techniques, mental discipline, and a deep philosophy.
Practicing Taekwondo offers a myriad of benefits, including:
PHYSICALLY - Students will develop coordination, gain strength, increase flexibility, and improve cardiovascular conditioning. All of these physical aspects help to develop a strong body.
MENTALLY - Students will build self-confidence, gain better judgment, and improve self-control. All of these mental disciplines help to develop a sound mind.
PHILOSOPHICALLY - While developing a strong body and a sound mind, it is appropriate to learn the valuable philosophical tools and lessons in life offered by Taekwondo philosophy.
Among these lessons: The way to be honest, always standing for justice. How to respect and help others. The meaning of loyalty and courtesy.
By incorporating these aspects into their lives our students continue to develop strength, humility and self respect.
