About Taekwondo

Taekwondo is a non-contact martial art from Korea. Translated, it literally means ‘the way of hand and foot’. It is an artistic discipline, a self-defence system, a fun fitness activity and, most importantly, a way of life.

The Art is well known for its powerful and exciting kicking and punching techniques, which include fast hand and foot combinations, spectacular jumping and flying kicks and powerful blocks and strikes, all executed with skill and control.

The physical training component of Taekwondo develops strength, speed, flexibility, faster reflexes, improved co-ordination and the ability to protect oneself from attack.

Regular training makes you fitter, stronger and more flexible and provides a tremendous sense of achievement and satisfaction. But there is so much more to Taekwondo than the purely physical side.

The philosophy of Taekwondo emphasises moral, emotional and physical development, with the aim of building a better and more peaceful world.

That philosophy, together with the values and traditions of martial arts training, gives students a moral code of conduct to follow. It is this code of conduct that separates Taekwondo from other forms of exercise. It is best summed up by it’s five tenets.

The five tenets of Taekwondo are:

• Courtesy
• Integrity
• Perseverance
• Self control
• Indomitable spirit

When Taekwondo training incorporates these values and traditional rules of behaviour, the practitioner learns self control and gains an inner strength that develops character, integrity and self confidence.

It is this holistic development of body, mind and spirit that truly sets Taekwondo apart and empowers the practitioner to enjoy endless benefits across all aspects of life.
