What is Tae Kwon Do?
Taekwondo (also known as Tae Kwon Do) is the art of self defense that originated in Korea. It is recognized as one of the oldest forms of martial arts in the world, reaching back over 2,000 years. The name was selected for its appropriate description of the art: Tae (foot), Kwon (hand), Do (art).
Tae Kwon Do primarily uses most parts of the body for defensive and offensive moves. Techniques consist of many different moves practiced and joined together for maximum efficiency. These different moves include basic stances, kicking, punching, striking, blocking and combinations of these moves form prearranged attacks and counter-attacks. Some of the moves are to develop basic speed and coordination, and others apply to actual defensive and offensive moves.
Tae Kwon Do improves confidence, self-discipline, and focus.
There is significantly more to Tae Kwon Do than merely keeping fit and learning offensive and defensive techniques. Students gain confidence, while learning discipline and focus.
