1. WHAT DOES MOO DUK KWAN MARTIAL ARTS TEACH?

In our school, we teach a highly effective system of Korean martial arts called Tae Kwon Do. We teach explosive kicks, punches, joint locking, and a myriad of weaponry, molded into a dynamic style emphasizing speed, power, and fluidity. Our superior techniques come from years of learning, researching, and organizing moves that make this art effective and practical.

2. WHY SHOULD I STUDY TAE KWON DO?

For self-esteem, strength, and a rigorous exercise program. We live in a society where a basic knowledge of self defense is required and where the stress of everyday life sometimes takes its toll. Martial arts teach self-achievement, respect, and cultivate mental and physical strength.

3. MARTIAL ARTS DEVELOP LONGEVITY!

Practicing martial arts, such as Tae Kwon Do, helps to slow the aging process and strengthens the cardiovascular system as well as helping to develop flexibility in the muscles and joints. Aging, as far as modern science is concerned, is inevitable, but you can slow things down by avoiding catastrophic or traumatic changes in your body: things that developed through stress, illness, and working long hours. Tae Kwon Do unites the mind, body, and spirit.

4. MARTIAL ARTS IMPROVE MEMORY!

5. IS TAE KWON DO FOR EVERYONE?

The answer is YES! Emphatically so. Unlike other styles of martial arts, Tae Kwon Do is designed to fit the individual’s needs. You don’t have to be young, flexible, or even in good physical shape. All that will come in time as you progress in the study of Tae Kwon Do.

6. CHILDREN’S TAE KWON DO!

Research in the area of child behavior tell us that a child’s personality begins to form between the ages of 5 and 7. Martial arts can contribute towards developing a healthy attitude about one’s self and others. This is done by teaching courtesy, respect, and fair play; while instilling a sense of achievement and self-esteem.

Children will be learning martial arts tradition, discipline, problem-solving skills, and confidence. They will learn to relate, assimilate, and communicate skills that prepare them for their transition within the public school system. Most of all, learning Tae Kwon Do in a healthy family-like environment is just plain fun!
