About Tae Kwon Do

Tae Kwon Do is the popular Korean martial art known for its dynamic kicking techniques. Participants learn skills and techniques in a safe, fun environment. Each student is looked at as a unique individual and as a member of a team. The skills taught are progressive with built-in incentives for students to achieve success and maximize potential.

Beginner students are introduced to a combination of kicking and punching techniques, self-defense and forms. The training also includes mental skills that improve memorization.

Intermediate to Advanced students are challenged with more complicated mental and physical skills, including advanced forms, self-defense techniques and the study of musculoskeletal systems and the history of martial arts.

Advanced students prepare for demonstrations and competitions, including advanced self-defense techniques, forms and weapons training (Bo Staff, Kamas and Nunchuks).

A uniform and sparring equipment can be purchased and is mandatory for testing purposes. Check must be made payable to the JCCNS. Tournament participation is not mandatory.
