What is Taekwondo?

Tae Kwon-Do is a form of unarmed combat that has its origins in ancient Korea  and has grown in popularity to become the most widely practised martial art in the world.

 Translated from Korean :

Tae – Meaning Foot
Kwon- Meaning Fist
Do – Meaning Art

Therefore Tae Kwon-Do is … “The Art of Foot and Fist”

It is best known for its spectacular jumping and spinning kicks, but also incorporates punches, blocks, locks, holds, throws and strikes and is a highly effective self defence system.

Tae Kwon-Do is also a globally practised sport and has been an Olympic event since 1988.


It is a great way to get fit and stay healthy, to learn how to defend yourself, to meet good friends and have great fun!

That’s why millions of people all over the world are already doing it!
