Tae Kwon-Do literally means the art of the foot and fist. It is a Korean martial art which although having its roots in the ancient Orient, was developed in its present form in the middle of the last century. Inaugurated in 1955 by its founder General Choi Hong Hi, Tae Kwon-Do was introduced into this country in 1967. By using the various techniques in Tae Kwon-Do you will learn how to deal with a violent situation, blocking or evading the opponents attack and effectively counter attacking. Although chiefly known for the high kicking techniques of Tae Kwon-Do, it also incorporates punches and strikes, blocks and releases and even pressure points, locks and throws.
