About TKD

Taekwon-Do is a Korean form of martial art of self-defence which literally translates as "The Art of Hand and Foot". Taekwon-Do was developed and founded by Grand Master Choi Hong Hi 9th Dan, a General in the Korean Army. Some of the aims of this system are to develop a sense of discipline and self-confidence in the practitioner in a non-aggressive manner.

The basic tenets of Taekwon-Do are: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit. In this way, we try to promote a sense of justice and respect for one another in a hard working but fun and safe environment.

The hard physical work is matched with an insight into the realm of Eastern philosophy, since we believe that mind and body should work and grow together in order to maintain a balance which serves as support for the world we live in.

Taekwon-Do is the fastest growing form of Martial Art in the world today, and its popularity has surpassed barriers of race, sex, age, nationality and religion. In other words, Taekwon-Do is practised and enjoyed by millions all over the planet.
