Taekwondo Training

WHAT IS TAEKWONDO

It is a version of an ancient form of unarmed combat practiced for many centuries in the Orient. Taekwondo became perfected in it’s present form in Korea. Translated from Korean, ‘Tae’ literally means to jump, kick or smash with the foot. ‘Kwon’ means a fist- chiefly to punch or destroy with the hand or fist. ‘Do’ means art, way or method. Tae Kwon-Do indicates the techniques of unarmed combat for self-defense, involving the skilled application of punches, kicks, blocks, dodges and interception with the hand, arms and feet to the rapid destruction of the opponent.
