For centuries, martial arts have been an integral part of Korean culture and heritage. Improved and passed down from teacher to student, the origins of Taekwondo can be traced back two thousand years, but it was not until after World War II that interests in Korean national pride and ancient martial arts led to its official development in 1955. Today, Taekwondo is practiced by school children and military alike as a way to build a strong sense of cultural pride and humility through strict discipline, physical conditioning, and mental training.
Taekwondo is a well rounded, empty-handed martial art that uses no weaponry. It’s numerous unique kicks and hand techniques make it ideal for self-defense and physical fitness while building character, integrity, and honor for people of any age. Training exercises the entire body, a physical science constantly evaluated and improved until individual movements are perfected into one. Through great concentration and effort, the mind must also work to achieve excellence in technique and effectiveness, making Taekwondo a discipline of mind and body.
