What Is Taekwondo?

Taekwondo is a modern and spectacular martial art that focuses on self-defence through developing physical prowess and positive mental training. Developed by a Korean General in the early 1950s, it is renowned for its fast footwork and is often mistaken simply for just a kicking art.

However, real Taekwondo is much more complex. Taught and practiced correctly, it’s blocking, striking and grappling techniques make for a diverse combat style and allow people to defend themselves against multiple opponents.

Equally important, Taekwondo has its roots in a strong moral culture: practitioners learn such virtues as humility, respect for others, civic duty, responsibility and integrity.

Why Learn Taekwondo?

We live in a world where it sometimes seems that morality takes a back seat, and where physical prowess and fitness is limited to the few. Taekwondo works against these attitudes, by helping its students to:

Learn practical, effective self-defence
Develop strength and stamina
Improve self-awareness, co-ordination and reflexes
Lose excess weight
Develop muscle tone and improve flexibility
Enhance self-discipline
Focus the mind
Boost confidence
Feel rejuvenated

Taekwondo empowers those who learn it properly, they feel better about themselves, about their lives and about the world in which they live.

Who Can Learn Taekwondo?

The beauty of Taekwondo is that it can be learnt by anyone, irrespective of age, gender or physical fitness. It doesn’t rely on brute force or size and you can start to learn at age 4 or 64.

As long as you are willing to learn and ready to adopt the core philosophies of this unique art, then we can teach you. We also offer training advice if you’re suffering from a disability or a previous injury.
