Tae Kwon Do is a traditional martial art from Korea dating back to ancient times. Tae Kwon Do is known for its amazing kicks, traditional forms, and is an official Olympic Sport. Its governing body is the World Taekwondo Federation in Seoul, South Korea. In addition to being a full-body workout, Tae kwon Do prides itself in developing character in its practitioners.
Tae Kwon Do teachings are based on 5 tenets: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, Indomitable Spirit.
The Korean word "poom-sae" means a "form" or "pattern of movements." It is actually a planned series of movements that combines the physical skills (such as blocks, strikes, kicks, stances and more) with the mental skills (such as balance, coordination, discipline, strategy, focus and more). The target of these movements is an imaginary opponent of the practitioner's own size.
One-Steps are self defense movements designed to introduce students to practical application of techniques. They teach basic block & counter techniques, targeting, distancing, angles and follow up.
