About Taekwondo
 
Taekwondo translates to ‘The Art of the Foot & Hand’. It is a Korean Martial Art which although having roots in the ancient Orient, was developed to its present form in the middle of this century.

Our training follows the five tenets of Taekwondo:

禮儀
Courtesy

Respecting others, having manners as well as maintaining the appropriate etiquette at all times, both within and outside the dojang.

廉恥
Integrity

Determining what is right or wrong and having the conscience to feel guilt if one has done wrong and to stand up for what is right.

忍耐
Perseverance

Trying time and time again until achieving a result which is adequate towards what one was trying to achieve.

克己
Self-control

Having control over one's acts, thoughts and actions.

百折不屈
Indomitable spirit

Having the courage to stand up for what you believe in, no matter what odds you are up against, and to always give 100% effort in whatever you do.
