Tae Kwon Do is a martial art that was developed as a form of self-defense in Korea over 2,000 years ago.  It combines physical, mental and spiritual training so that each student may develop to their fullest potential.

“Tae” means kicking or the techniques of using the feet; “Kwon” means punching, or the techniques of using the hands; and “Do” means the way through self-discipline and enlightenment.

Tae Kwon Do techniques encompass both the quick actions of Karate and the circular patterns of Kungfu, but it is best known for its use of one’s legs, to deliver powerful self-defense techniques.  Tae Kwon Do’s kicking methods are often executed with amazing agility, height and speed.  

It is the philosophy of Tae Kwon Do that all of its movements are based on developing a natural instinct for self-defense techniques, while progressing to a non-agressive and serene approach to stressful or conflict situations.
