About this event

For those interested in learning fast and elaborate kicking moves as well as self-discipline, Taekwondo is the course for you! One of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, this course teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our body and mind. Taekwondo is the right way of using Tae and Kwon (translated as "fists and feet"), or all the parts of the body that are represented by fists and feet. It is also a way to control or calm down fights and keep the peace. This concept comes from the meaning of Tae Kwon 'to put fists under control' [or 'to step on fists']. Thus Taekwondo means "the right way of using all parts of the body to stop fights and help to build a better and more peaceful world." In this class, students will focus on martial arts characterized by punching and kicking techniques, with emphasis on head-height kicks, spinning jump kicks, and fast kicks all the while working on their self-esteem and self-control. The benefits of this class are quite numerous, each of which can go a long way in improving both mental and physical health. Join us!
