Why Learn Taekwon-Do?Olympus0097

One Master said:

“For Self-defence: One never knows when he or she may be attacked. Since we normally do not carry side arms, a most effective way to defend ourselves and our loved ones is “empty hand fighting” and Taekwon-Do reveals the ancient secrets. Knowledge of these secrets can be life savings in times of danger.

For Health: Taekwon-Do is far more than self defence.
It is a superb means of mental and physical development.
Taekwon-Do practitioners are noted for their excellent health gained from the discipline and patience required by the art.

For Self Confidence and Poise: Taekwon-Do first and foremost requires that all students be polite and respectful and never use their knowledge for frivolous purposes or wanton harm. Yet a true student is able to dispel fear.”

What can be achieved through Taekwon-Do training? The student of Taekwon-Do develops an unbeatable self-defense through rigid training and professional supervised instruction.
In addition Taekwon-Do builds dynamic tension and makes balanced use of a large number of body muscles.
It provides excellent all around exercise and develops coordination and agility.
Taekwon-Do trains students in character, sincerity, effort, etiquette and self-control.

Who may learn Taekwon-Do? Classes are open to men, women and children as Taekwon-Do is one of the only true family martial arts; all can learn and participate together.
The degree of progress for any student is based on the individual coordination and attentiveness.
Physical fitness is essential for a happy, productive life, and invariably, people who are capable of defending themselves are less troublesome and better citizens.
