What is Taekwondo?

Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our body and mind. Today, it has become a global sport that has gained an international reputation, and stands among the official games in the Olympics.


Taekwondo can be characterized by unity: the unity of body, mind, and life, and the unity of the pose ["poomsae"] and confrontation, and cracking down. When you do Taekwondo, you should make your mind peaceful and synchronize your mind with your movements, and extend this harmony to your life and society. This is how in Taekwondo the principle of physical movements, the principle of mind training, and the principle of life become one and the same. On the other hand, the right poomsae lead to the right confrontation, which will eventually produce great destructive power.

  • Confidence

  • Discipline

    • Discipline is part of the code of practice for students and is present in every aspect of the art. An atmosphere of friendly discipline is maintained helping the child to develop mental, physical and spiritual well being.

  • Respect

    • Taekwondo is all about respect. Punching, kicking and throwing are all secondary to the respect. Learn to treat others as they wish to be treated and practice respect for self, parents, teachers and peers at every opportunity.
