Tae Kwon Do
is a martial art that originated in the area now known as Korea and is a recognized sport in the Olympic Games. TKD focuses on complete body exercise and a way of life. Individuals are challenged to incorporate the 5 tenets (principals) of TKD in to their lives: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, and Indomitable Spirit.
Although Tae Kwon Do includes combat techniques and self defense, it is guided by the principal that no attack should be made unless threatened, and teaches techniques to avoid conflict.
We train individuals age 5 through adult in Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido (emphasizes joint locks, sweeps, and throws) self defense, and competition training. Our focus is physically and mentally challenging. All students start as a white belt learning a series of patterns and movements, and self defense techniques. When you have demonstrated that you have mastered these skills, you will test for your next belt color. You will continue building on these patterns and movements as you test and receive each belt promotion. In addition to class room training, you have opportunities to attend camp, and to participate in tournaments and community events, building friendships along the way.
When you reach your Black Belt, the sense of accomplishment and
the experience will have meaning that will last a lifetime!
