What is Taekwon-Do?
Taekwon-Do is a relatively modern martial art. Introduced to the world in 1955, it
is based on an ancient fighting system called Taek Kyon – used by an elite force for centuries to defend territories of Korea against invasion. Taek Kyon was renowned for its skill in unarmed combat and particularly its devastating kicks.
Taekwon-Do, the art of hand and foot fighting , or the martial art of self defence, has further applied science and the principles of physics to the moves of Taek Kyon in order to increase the effectiveness of the already powerful techniques. Taekwon-Do uses the whole body, and doesn’t rely on strength alone, because of this, it is suitable for men women and children of any age and stature.
