What is Taekwondo

Taekwondo, a Korean martial art with a rich history, has evolved over centuries, blending tradition, philosophy, and physical prowess. The roots of Taekwondo can be traced back to the ancient Korean martial arts, such as Taekkyeon and Hwa Rang Do, practiced during the Three Kingdoms period (57 BCE – 668 CE).

Taekwondo is characterized by its emphasis on powerful kicks, dynamic strikes, and fluid movements. It is not only a means of self-defense but also a holistic discipline that promotes physical fitness, mental strength, and ethical values. The art's inclusion in the Olympic Games since 2000 has further elevated its global status and attracted practitioners from diverse cultures.

The below tenets are not only integral to the philosophy of Taekwondo but also serve as a guide for personal development and character building. By embodying these principles, practitioners aim to cultivate a well-rounded and morally upright approach to both their martial arts practice and their lives outside the training hall.
