Taekwondo Characteristics & History

Taekwondo is an Olympic sport and a Korean martial art.  The emphasis on kicking techniques makes the art very beautiful.  As one can imagine, it takes years to develop the balance and flexibility necessary to correctly execute the kicking techniques of this form.  The style is a “hard” system that utilizes hand techniques minimally.  We utilize Taekwondo (TKD) and instruct classes in West Hartford, CT that use aspects from this martial art form.

Taekwondo class is a great choice for kids. The fun and structured classes teach good character, social responsibility, and of course the art of taekwondo!

Karate teaches kids discipline, respect, and self defense.

Children tend to have flexibility that adults needs to work extra hard to attain. Kids are also excellent at pattern memorization. These two qualities give them an edge when beginning their martial arts journey into Kung Fu. Our classes are fun, and children build character while they excel physically.
