The Taekwon-Do taught in this class is the original Korean martial art form developed by General Choi Hong Hi, the founder and father of Taekwon-Do. Students will learn self-defense, discipline and respect from the original Taekwon-Do Tenets of Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control and the Indomitable Spirit. Training will be both physical (exercises designed to produce power and stamina) and academic (introduction to some Korean words, history, and technical teaching).
