                What is Tae Kwon Do?

Taekwondo Tae Kwon Do is the art of Korean unarmed combat based on the ancient form of Korean self-defense, Tae Kyon.  The orgins of Tae Kwon Do streach back over 4,000 years to the early Indian and Chinese Monks who traveled the Orien.  The Monks practiced a form of self defense, along bandit infested roads, known as Shaolin Ch'uan Fa (Chinese Kempo Boxing or Kung Fu).  By the forth century, the martial art techniques arrived in the northern provinces of Korea where local people evevtually developed the predecessor of Tae Kwon Do, called Tae Kyon.

Tae = 'Foot' or 'to kick' or 'to jump'

K'won=Fist' or 'to strike or block with hand'
Do = 'The way of' or 'art'

Put this together and Tae Kwon Do means: "The art of kicking and punching" or "The art of unarmed combat."


Disciplines of Tae Kwon Do

Tae Kwon Do has four disciplines:
  • Forms
  • Sparring
  • Self-defense
  • Break Test
It is the combination of these four disciplines that make the art of Tae Kwon Do.

Objectives of Tae Kwon Do:

  1. to develop an appreciation for Tae Kwon Do as a sport and an art
  2. to achieve physical fitness through positive participation
  3. to improve mental discipline and emotional equanimity
  4. to learn self-defense skills
  5. to develop a sense of responsibility for one self and others

Tae Kwon Do is primarily a kicking art, often with a greater emphasis on the sport aspect of the art. Tae Kwon Do stylists tend to fight at an extended range, and keep opponents away with their feet. It is a hard/soft, external, fairly linear style and is known for being very powerful. There is a lot of competition work in many dojongs. Training tends to emphasize sparring, but forms, and the basics are very important as well.

You may be fearful of others, or have kids that are bullie at school.  They may have problems with respect for teachers or even parents.  You may just want to do what it takes to become a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do.  If so, give us a call.  You will see grades change, respect change, shyness change and most of all one learns a skill with belt change and award of certificates.
