What is Taekwon-do?
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art and self-defense technique. A true folk art, it has evolved over a period of 2000 years. Taekwondo was developed as a defence for unarmed persons against enemy attacks. The art is based on defensive spirit and its code forbids unfair assaults or unnecessary use of force and fosters humility, discipline, generous attitudes and friendship.
Our program develops well-rounded students who are able to do much more than championship events. Through discipline and training the student learns to coordinate mind and body and obtains access to extraordinary power and speed of response.
