What is Taekwondo?
Taekwondo is often characterized by unity of body-mind-spirit-life, as well as unity of poomse(forms) and confrontation. When performing Taekwondo, one should make the mind peaceful and synchronized with movement, extending this harmony with life and society. This is how the principle of physical movement, mind training, and life become one.
Disciplines of Taekwondo
Taekwondo has four disciplines:
* Patterns * Sparring *Self-Defense *Break Test
It is the combination of these four disciplines that make the art of Taekwondo.
Objectives of Taekwondo:
Taekwondo is primarily a kicking art, often with a greater emphasis on the sport aspect of the art. Taekwondo stylists tend to fight at an extended range, and keep opponents away with their feet. It is a hard/soft, external, fairly linear style and is known for being very powerful. There is a lot of competition work in many dojangs. Training tends to emphasize sparring, but also has forms, and the basics are important as well.

This class focuses on Taekwondo & Habgido techniques that ranging from Moderate Level Skills through Advanced Level Skills.
Habgido (All Belts - Advanced)
Strikes may be delivered by a number of different body surfaces. This includes the use of hands, feet, arms, legs and head. Rigorously learning and practicing proper strike techniques are important to your development as a martial artist. Should you ever need to use Habgido to defend yourself or others, your body will respond in the way you trained it.
If you learn proper strike techniques and practice them with concentration and rigorous adherence to what you learned, your body will automatically deliver effective strikes when confronted by a need to defend yourself. If, on the other hand, you practice Habgido in a haphazard, sloppy and casual manner, your body will be ineffective as a weapon and surviving a threatening confrontation will depend far more on luck than on your neglected skill.
