What is Taekwondo?
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art. The name comes from Tae (foot), Kwon (fist) and Do (art, way of life), literally meaning "the art of hand and foot fighting". However, Taekwondo is a defensive and not an offensive martial art.
Currently, Taekwondo is practiced in over 158 countries with nearly 30 million practitioners registered with the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF).
Taekwondo as a Way of Life
Physical and self-defense training is a means to cultivate patience, self-confidence and self-discipline. It provides a sense of well being and the ability to defend oneself. Taekwondo concentrates on the development of a strong mind and spirit.
All students are introduced to live by the tenets of Taekwondo: "Courtesy", "Integrity", "Perseverance", "Self-Control (Discipline)" and "Indomitable Spirit (Fortitude)".
All students are introduced to life philosophies with the goal of establishing harmony with oneself and ultimately with others.
Taekwondo debuted as an Olympic sport in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Currently, Taekwondo competitions are held at local, Collegiate (NCAA), State, National and International venues. Taekwondo rise as a "martial sport" is driving it's popularity around the world.
