Taekwondo

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art and the national sport of South Korea. It combines combat techniques, self-defense, sport, exercise, and in some cases meditation and philosophy. Training includes a system of blocks, kicks, punches, and open-handed strikes and may also include various take-downs or sweeps, throws, and joint locks. It often incorporates self-defense techniques borrowed from other martial arts, such as Hapkido and Judo. It is defined by its focus on jumping and spinning kicks, and fast kicking techniques. Taekwondo sparring has been an Olympic event since 2000.

We offer Taekwondo programs for kids, teens and adults.

"How positive the lessons were inside and outside of the gym . . . it's about the tenets of Taekwondo. It's about integrity, self-control, perseverance . . . it conforms into every aspect of your life."
