Tae Kwon Do
TaeKwonDo is distinctly a Korean Martial Art that requires no weapons. It has been practiced for over 20 centuries by kings, soldiers, and civilians as a form of instinctive self-defence and to improve one’s physical fitness, health, and inner peace. TaeKwonDo, translated literally, is: the way of kicking feet and striking hands. TaeKwonDo utilizes both mental and physical development, which provides a setting for emotional well being, free from stress and fear, a complete system of self-defence, a popular new sport, and a truly unique approach to living. TaeKwonDo is not only for the strong, but for any person, old, young, male, female, big or small...who wishes to master an art.
