What is Taekwondo?

Taekwondo is an ancient Korean art of self-defense which has been developing for over 20 centuries. The fundamental components of Taekwondo are kicking, blocking and punching. Today, it is a global sport that has gained an international reputation, and stands among the official games in the Olympics.

Taekwondo is not only a method of physical conditioning. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our mind and body. Taekwondo enhances our mental discipline, concentration, respect, patience and self-control.
