As it is literally translated from Korean language, Tae means "to kick or strike with the foot," Kwon means "fist or to strike with the hand," and Do means "discipline or art." Combined, TaeKwonDo literally means "the art of kicking and punching"--"the art of unarmed combat." Over the years, TKD had become a unique Martial Art that incorporates the quick, straight line movements that is seen in various Japanese systems and the flowing circular movements that are seen in most Chinese styles. What truly separates TaeKwonDo apart from all other styles is its varied and uniquely powerful kicking techniques. Yet, TKD is far more than just a system concerned with physical power, it is an art directed towards the moral development of its students.
The Tenets of TaeKwonDo
TKD is built upon 11 commandments that are used to guide the moral development of students. Not a single student will be able to fully understand these tenets can ever hope to master the true essence of the art. You can find these written on the walls of our dojang:
