What is TAE KWON DO?
Tae Kwon Do is a Korean Martial Art designed for unarmed self defense and counterattacks. Tae Kwon Do is the art of kicking and punching. It incorporates the linear movements of Karate (Okinawan-Japanese style of fighting) and flowing circular patterns of Kung Fu (Chinese styles). It is greatly know for its unique kicking techniques not comparable to any of the two mentioned styles.
What will it teach me?
Tae Kwon Do will develop and teach you to have a feeling of security through physical fitness, poise and grace and sporting unarmed . (the most important thing, however, is that it gives you a peace in mind-confidence and self-discipline of yourself.)
1. Self defense - Essentially the art of Korean Karate is the art of self-defense and designed for protective reasons. This is why Karate should not be used wrongly or violently. Karate, however, requiring only a minimum of strength and physical contact, has become the favorite type of self-defense for women.
2. Patience - Man is a soul and has what he calls a mind and body. Through proper training of this art a Karate person is able to clearly understand himself and knowing his truth he becomes a freer person who can keep his patience and use correct judgment in all affairs.
3. Courage - Karate strengthens the will and fortifies a person against obstacles, weakness, disappointments and the discouragements of life so he may enjoy greater health, peace and happiness.
