What is taekwondo?

Taekwondo is a modern martial art, characterized by it’s fast, high and spinning kicks. There are multiple interpretations of the name taekwondo. Taekwondo is often translated as ‘the way of hand and foot’. My definition of the name Taekwondo is

  • Tae=’to strike or block with the foot’ or ‘to kick’, it also means ‘jump’
  • K’won=’Fist’, ‘to strike or block with hand’
  • Do=’The way of’ or ‘art’.

Put this together and Taekwondo means: “The art of Kicking and Punching” or “The art of unarmed combat”. The sport has been founded in Korea and is one of the popular modern martial arts.

Finding an effective self defense school has always been difficult. Nowadays most martial arts schools focus on things other than self defense. Most are focused on teaching children or training for competition.  There are really only a handful of schools that teach martial arts in their original form. It’s sad but true that it’s hard to find a martial arts school that’s all about martial arts.

That’s why we created this site. We’ve been teaching  Taekwondo for over twenty years. It’s a phenomenal art with principles of body motion just not found elsewhere. Over the years we’ve taught hundreds of people this incredible fighting art. Many have come from extensive martial arts backgrounds. They have all been amazed by it’s principles and all will agree. It’s the most effective fighting art they’ve ever seen.

However, there are only a few online Taekwondo schools.  Finding a qualified teacher in any fighting style of martial art is difficult. It’s especially difficult with Taekwondo. The art, like many other great arts, was nearly lost. It was preserved by only a handful of practitioners. An ancient art nearly lost forever.

We’ve put together LIVE Online Training just for the beginner. This LIVE Online series takes you from knowing nothing to understanding the basic foundation of the art. You’ll be learning basic but effective self defense techniques that with a little practice will be effective for you. However your not only learning self defense techniques, your also learning the proper mechanics of the art. Should you decide to go further these mechanics will have you ready to proceed to the next level.
