Taekwon-Do class


Summary of Tae-Kwon-Do

The Art:
Tae Kwon Do is derived from several martial arts with its main influence being ‘Tae-Kyon Kick Fighting’. Literally translated ‘Tae’ is to kick or smash with the feet, ‘Kwon’ means to intercept or strike with the hand and ‘Do’ is the way of the art.

Tae-Kwon-Do teaches Tuls/Patterns: Concentration, technique, skill, balance, dynamics and elegance are just few requirements needed to perform these sequences of pre-arranged movements against imaginary opponents.

Self Defence: Our way of Tae-Kwon-Do teaches a broad range of self defence techniques from defences against open handed attacks and weapon attacks using kicks, strikes, locks and other methods. Many of the techniques we teach have been forgotten or disregarded by other schools of Tae-Kwon-Do. We strongly believe in the self defence of this martial art and the traditional training.

One Step Sparring: One Step Sparring is a series of practicing moves to develop speed, focus and develop self defence techniques, the basic routines are pre-set, as you progress through the ranks the moves become your own choice to develop your techniques.

Fitness Training/Weight Loss: Tae-Kwon-Do is well known for the fitness levels and skills that practitioners develop and demonstrate, in training you will experience bodyweight training, stamina training, weight loss, interval training and feel more toned, more lean a and a much healthier lifestyle and a hardened body for protection.

Theory: In Tae-Kwon-Do training you will learn about the history of this beautiful martial art, and learn many of the techniques in Korean native language and an understanding of the language.
