HISTORY
Taekwondo is an ancient Korean martial art form of self-defense that originated some 2000 years ago. Taekwondo has grown into a world-wide sport that is now practiced in over 150 countries around the world by more than 50 million people. In keeping with its world-wide popularity, Taekwondo was selected over other Asian martial arts as a metal event in the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
Taekwondo trains the body by practicing the basic movements, a series of combination moves, free sparing and knife defense techniques. The Taekwondo teaching methods develop a strong, healthy and agile body as well as character and spirit through perseverance, practice and patience.
