THE MARTIAL ART

Taekwondo, or "the way of hand and foot, is a dynamic and scientific martial art renown for a rich culture and history as well as a competitive Olympic sport. The art is known for its emphasis on kicking techniques, which distinguishes it from martial arts such as karate or southern styles of kung fu. The rationale is that the leg is the longest and strongest weapon a martial artist has, and kicks thus have the greatest potential to execute powerful strikes without successful retaliation.

 

As of 2009, Taekwondo was practiced in 123 countries, with over 30 million practitioners and 3 million individuals with black belts throughout the world. According to the World Taekwondo Federation, "Taekwondo is one of the most systematice and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our mind body and mind"  (retrieved from worldtaekwondofederation.net).  

 

A WAY OF LIFE

According to the World Taekwondo Federation, "Taekwondo is one of the most systematice and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our mind body and mind"  (retrieved from worldtaekwondofederation.net).

 

PHILOSOPHY

The philosophy of Taekwondo can be attained through the cultivation and maturity of all three aspects of the Art: physical, mental, and spiritual. Once these three aspects have been instilled in a person, then the total maturation of the person will start a chain-reaction which will, with God's help, lead to a more peaceful world.
