Our Instructors hold numerous World, European and National titles. They are nternationally certified and extensively trained, not simply in Taekwon-Do skills, but also in the latest exercise and fitness training methods. We teach the most up-to-date techniques that are both effective and safe. Taekwon-Do involves the use of various hand and foot techniques to defend oneself against one or more opponents.The most important word here is DEFEND as Taekwon-Do is not an aggressive art.
Taekwon-Do For Children:
Taekwon-Do is a total learning activity. Lessons are tailored to your child's age and skill level. Your child begins by practicing basic patterns and forms, kicking, blocking, striking, and punching. These fundamental skills increase physical co-ordination, fleXibility, balance, and mental discipline. Taekwon-Do develops athletic abilities, self-awareness, and improves the child's capabilities in self-defence.
Taekwon-Do for Adults:
Taekwon-Do strengthens your body and improves your health through physical exercise and conditioning. Isometric and dynamic tension exercises will allow you to gain better muscle tone and increased strength. A gradual bUilding process of safe and easy stretching techniques will enhance fleXibility, while breathing and concentration exercises lead to sharper senses and reflexes. The discipline of Taekwon-Do leads to increased energy, better health and fitness, greater co-ordination , and higher self-esteem.
