Taekwon-do is a Korean unarmed art of self-defense. Literally, Tae means to use the feet to kick or stamp. Kwon means to use the hands to strike or block. Do means the way. Therefore, Taekwon-do is loosely translated as "the way of kicking and punching".
Whilst Taekwon-do is a form of mental and physical training for self-defense and good health, it is also a way of thinking and living. The aspects of discipline, technique and mental training are the building blocks for a strong sense of justice, courage, humility and empathy. Taekwon-do is good for everyone to practice: kids and adults, male and female. The objective of practicing Taekwon-do is to develop good character traits and to attain a healthy mind and body through regular training.
