The Roots and History of Tae-Kwon-Do

Tae-Kwon-Do is the name given to the ancient Korean art of self-defense and has been practiced for over 2000 years. It emphasizes foot (TAE) and hand (KWON) techniques, as well as developing the spirit (DO) or mind of the individual. Unlike many other sports, TKD is known to enhance both physical and mental strength. The popularity of the sport has since spread throughout the world and TKD became an official Olympic sport in the 2000 Games.

The Benefits of Tae-Kwon-Do are many. It is an extremely effective form of self-defense and the perfect way to sharpen the mind and increase physical fitness. Students learn to develop greater concentration and flexibility while relieving stress. TKD also builds self-confidence and disciplines students to act with integrity and respect.

Tae-Kwon-Do is a continuous Journey of Learning and within the first month, the student will learn the basic stances, blocks, kicks and punches. Steady training allows the student to advance from a white belt to yellow and eventually black.

However, being a black belt is yet another exciting beginning of learning. While the first few years may have stressed learning new techniques, being a black belt entails its own curriculum of physical, but more importantly mental knowledge such as leadership. Taekwondo is a learning endeavor that never ends. It continues to train and shape you to BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE!
