What is Tae Kwon Do?

What is Tae Kwon Do? Tae Kwon Do, translated as “The Way of the Hand and Foot,” is a Korean martial art characterized by fast, high and spinning kicks.  There are five main objectives in Tae Kwon Do:
  • Develop an appreciation for Tae Kwon Do as a sport and an art
  • Achieve physical fitness through positive participation
  • Improve mental discipline and build confidence
  • Learn self-defense skills
  • Develop a sense of responsibility for oneself and others

In the practice of Tae Kwon Do, there are four main disciplines studied, each playing an important role in developing a well-rounded and well-trained artist:

  • Poomsae (Forms): A series of movements for offense and defense techniques designed to express the style of conduct in which mental strength, Tae Kwon Do spirit, and physical refinements manifest.
  • Sparring: The sport of engagement in which athletes test their physical, mental and spiritual limits while attempting to achieve the highest number of points in a full-contact match.
  • Self-defense: Attaining the confidence and technical skill to defend oneself in the most antagonistic of situations.
  • Board Breaking: The physical expression of mental strength and breaking down barriers.

When learned together, these disciplines teach the student valuable skills in technique, focus, patience, perseverance, self-control, and self-confidence! No matter your age, ability, or fitness level, we are proud to help you continue your fitness journey through the martial arts. Join us in Potomac to get started!
