TaeKwon-Do was founded by General Choi Hong Hi from Korea,
and combines the best of Karate, Kung Fu, Kick Boxing, Jujitsu, Wang Chun,
and other martial arts. TaeKwon-Do is undergoing a metamorphosis as it
grows and changes and improves over time.
TaeKwon-Do includes fitness training, stretching, offensive
and defensive techniques such as punching and kicking, semi-contact sparring,
breaking of boards and bricks, and world-wide competitions which any student
can attend or take part in. No other martial art has such a broad and encompassing
program. Take a look at the pictures and videos and see for yourself what
TaeKwon-Do is about.
TaeKwon-Do is the world's most popular martial art and has schools located
world wide so that once you've started, you will never have to start over
again, even if you move away to another city or another country.
The most senior Grand Master in the world is Grand Master Rhee Ki Ha who
is located in the United Kingdom. You can meet the Grand Master and learn
from the founder of the United Kingdom TaeKwon-Do Association yourself
if you train with us. (www.ukta.com)
The tenets of TaeKwon-Do are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control
and the indomitable spirit. Grand Master Rhee instructs us to be human
weapons, however, we are also trained to have the characteristics to manage
this powerful ability.
