WHAT WE DO
We teach Olympic style taekwondo which is open to all ages. This includes Olympic sports sparring and it is a great way for children and adults to gain confidence and utilize their taekwondo skills in a real-world environment and lose their fear of being hit. Traditional Poomsae or Patterns are a set sequence of movements that consists of the various fundamental stances, blocks, punches and kicks logically arranged in a meaningful order in response to attacks from multiple imaginary assailants. Each Poomsae pattern consists of an established sequence of movements which has a philosophical meaning, and each Poomsae has its own character and distinct quality. Poomsae teaches a student balance, technique, coordination and self-discipline. Self Defence is also taught Self-defence may incorporate many of the following elements: Educating in how to be more aware of one's surroundings, with emphasis on potentially threatening situations.
