What is Tae Kwon Do?

Tae Kwon Do represents 2,000 years of history and tradition and is South Korea’s original and unique form of martial arts. It is easier to learn than other styles of martial arts and focuses on the aspect of self-defense. Studying the art of self-defense is an advantageous and useful life skill, because it allows an individual to be self-reliant. Tae Kwon Do is practiced in 190 countries by persons of all ages and backgrounds.

If you study with us at KM2A, you will join the ranks of over 90 million others who currently practice the art of Tae Kwon Do. You may have already seen our sport in the Olympic Games, since it has been a part of them since the year 2000 in Sydney, Australia. After that time, Tae Kwon Do became hugely popular and we here are always eager to have new students join us!

Martial Arts Teaching Style and Techniques

Our program relies on a series of steps, which gradually become more difficult based on one’s progression through the ranks of Tae Kwon Do. These steps are designed to be easier for beginners, and increase with difficulty, precision, and focus later on. The first step teaches the basics, such as blocking, punching, and kicking. These different movements, along with forms (or poom-se) need to be perfected and memorized prior to studying the second step.

The second step includes learning a jump kick, and board-breaking techniques using the hand. After mastering the second step, students are expected to be able to mix and apply their understanding of the first and second steps together before continuing with their Tae Kwon Do studies. The third step utilizes close-range techniques like grabbing, bending, twisting and throwing. This next step challenges students to react instinctively and at this point students are expected to be able to defend themselves sufficiently should the need ever arise.

The fourth and final step involves continuous training and perfecting of the aforementioned steps and techniques. Practicing will increase studentsᄀᆵ flexibility, self-confidence, self-reliance, self-defense skills, and help develop their physicality. And most importantly, continuous practice and repetition will help stabilize studentsᄀᆵ minds. The core teaching of martial arts is to train daily and achieve a healthy life while gaining wisdom and overall happiness.
