Translated from the Korean, “Tae” literally means to jump, kick or smash with the foot. “Kwon” means a fist, chiefly to punch or destroy with the hand or fist and “Do” means art, way or method.
To the Korean people Taekwondo is more than a mere use of skilled movements. It also implies a way of thinking and life, particularly in instilling a concept and spirit of strict self-imposed discipline and an ideal of noble moral rearmament.
In these days of violence and intimidation, which seem to plague our modern societies, Taekwondo enables the weak to possess a fine weapon to defend themselves and defeat the opponent. When wrongly applied it can be a lethal weapon.
