TaeKwonDo, an ancient Korean Martial Art, is the fastest growing Martial Art in the world.

We know that TaeKwonDo existed as far back as 50 BC, more than 2000 years ago. In these ancient times only warriors were allowed to use it. You may wonder how we know that TaeKwonDo existed so long ago. The reason is because archaeologists found pictures of people practicing TaeKwonDo on the ceiling of an ancient royal tomb in Korea called the Muyong-Chong.

Today, TaeKwonDo is the national sport of Korea. As with all martial arts, TaeKwonDo teaches punching, blocking and kicking techniques, but TaeKwonDo is unique in its emphasis on accuracy and power. It was a demonstration sport in the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, Korea, and an official event in the 2000 Olympic Games (Steven Lopez, from Texas, brought home a Gold Medal).

You don't have to be an Olympic althlete to enjoy the many benefits of TaeKwonDo. It trains both body and mind. It is a sport for everyone - men, women, and children. It is a wonderful way to gain self-confidence and strength.

With TaeKwon Do practice, you will:
  • Develop discipline and leadership
  • Build self-confidence
  • Improve self-esteem
  • Enhance flexibility
  • Develop quick reflexes and agility
  • Make friends
