Taekwondo is both an ancient Korean Martial Art and modern international Olympic sport that has many individual benefits and appeals to a wide age range and ability levels. The five basic tenants of Taekwondo are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit. These tenants are incorporated into the daily instruction and consistently demonstrated by all of the instructors and students. Taekwondo encourages each person to have a positive attitude towards themselves and others. Respect for all is an expectation that is consistently reinforced. This creates a safe environment for everyone to learn the skills they need, at their own pace, to achieve their highest level of success in Taekwondo. The positive attitude and self-confidence that is gained through participation in classes carries over into other areas of a person's life, including school, work and personal relationships. Finally, Taekwondo is an excellent workout and promotes greater overall physical health and well being.
