What is Taekwondo?
Taekwondo (태권도/跆拳道) is an ancient Korean form of unarmed combat dating back hundreds of years characterized by its emphasis on advanced kicking techniques. "Tae" represents the system of kicking techniques, "kwon" represents the system of hand techniques, and "do" is the art of experiencing the ultimate being through physical and metaphysical enlightenment. What's unique about Taekwondo is that it is one of the few martial arts that is constantly evolving and improving based on new understandings in science and kinesiology making it one of the safest martial arts to practice. Today, Taekwondo is an official Olympic sport with over 8 million official black belts around the world making it one of the most widely practiced martial arts.

How will Taekwondo benefit me or my child?
There are many reasons why Taekwondo is one of the most widely practiced martial arts in the world. One of those reasons are the vast benefits outside of just getting in shape or having an afterschool activity. Here at Taekwonkids, we don't just emphasize things like "kick higher" or "run faster" - we instill the importance of hardwork, discipline, and respect towards others and ourselves. A sense of responsibility and achieving high grades in formal education is encouraged of every single student that walks through our door. It doesn't matter if your child only practices for a few months or a few years, these values will stick with them through the rest of their lives, branching off into other areas such as school and work. Giving your child the gift of Taekwondo is one of the most beneficial things you can do.
