TaeKwonDo literally means ‘the way of the hand and foot’. ‘Tae’ stands for jumping or flying, to kick or smash with the foot. ‘Kwon’ means punch or to destroy with the hand or fist. ‘Do’ is simply the way. TaeKwonDo is more than a martial art, it is a way of life. It is a version of unarmed combat designed for self-defense. For centuries TaeKwonDo has been an integral part of the Korean society. The art’s effectiveness comes from the development of body flexibility and fluid movements as well as pure strength. Techniques are based on the physics of movement in conjunction with an understanding of the body. Through intensive physical and mental training, students can gain ultimate use of the body’s facilities. TaeKwonDo has no equal in either power or technique. TaeKwonDo has gained world-wide popularity for its simple and effective self-defense applications as well as a means of keeping fit, staying healthy and controlling weight. The main goal of TaeKwonDo is to achieve total mind and body control through training.
