Agility At Its Finest

Last update -- February 20, 2021

There are more than 130 recognized Martial Art styles, including 5 Tae Kwon-Do styles
We practice Traditional Chung do Kwan Tae Kwon-Do

Korean pronunciation: (Tᾱ Kwonʹ Dō)   Chung do Kwan spelling: 
(Tae Kwon-Do)

Some are quick to associate Martial Arts with violence and fighting. The focus of Tae Kwon-Do training is to establish Discipline, Courtesy and Respect. Although Tae Kwon-Do does develop self defense, the ability to protect oneself from danger comes only after many years of practice. The achievement of skill is measured by a student's dedication, sacrifice, devotion, and perseverance to the Art.
These photos show students enjoying the many benefits associated with Tae Kwon-Do training:  flexibility, strength, coordination, agility, and of course, discipline.

The philosophy or concept of board breaking dates back 2,000 years into Korea's rich and proud history. As we set goals in our everyday lives, we are often stalled and detoured by roadblocks and obstacles. A Tae Kwon-Do student must break down these barriers in order to reach their final objective. If an individual concentrates their full energy on an obstacle, while keeping focused on their goal, one will persevere.

Tae Kwon Do is an effective and great way to unify the mind and body. It helps develop one's health by increasing cardiovascular ability, strength, balance and flexibility. The combination of blocking, kicking and punching techniques, makes Tae Kwon-Do one of the ultimate unarmed self-defenses. Through the practice of Tae Kwon-Do you will become healthier, more coordinated, and confident in your daily life. Along with these benefits one can gain more self-confidence, self-discipline, respect, and better focus. Together, they combine into a powerful self-defense against any attacker. Anyone can begin from their present condition and enjoy continued success through Tae Kwon-Do training.
