Traditional Taekwondo    Lansing, NC

What is Taekwondo?

Taekwondo is a traditional Korean martial art dating back more than 2000 years. Meaning the “way of kicking and punching”, it was initially viewed as a form of military training which varied considerably in form. For some 2000 years, a range of martial arts were practiced on the Korean peninsula. During the early 20th century, taekwondo became the dominant form of martial arts practiced in Korea. Subsequently, taekwondo was designated as the Korean national martial art to be promoted internationally. Taekwondo develops flexibility, agility, speed, power, stamina, making it a 360-degree fitness regimen. Due to its roots in martial arts, it also demands discipline and courtesy, while offering practitioners self-defense and self-belief.(http://www.worldtaekwondo.org/about-wt/taekwondo/) It is guided by 5 main principals: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit.
