SUMMARY OF TAEKWONDO
Tae Kwon Do is derived from several martial arts with its main influence being ‘Tae-Kyon Kick Fighting’. Literally translated – ‘Tae’ is to kick or smash with the feet, ‘Kwon’ means to intercept or strike with the hand and ‘Do’ is the way of the art.
Competition Tae Kwon Do is split into two sections: Sparring: All matches are semi-contact will full safety equipment worn to avoid any risk of injury. The pace is fast and furious. It has been described as the most visually breath-taking sport since Chariot Racing! Winners are decided from a point system with referees constantly monitoring the bout to keep strict control on contact. (note: Competition Tae Kwon Do is purely optional).
Concentration, technique, skill, balance, dynamics and elegance are just a few requirements needed to perform these sequences of pre-arranged movements against imaginary opponents.
