Taekwondo Class

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art. Literally, the Korean word “Taekwondo” translates to “the way of the hand and foot.” However, Taekwondo is much more than simply learning kicking and punching techniques. It is a way of life that asks its participants to tune into and strengthen their minds, bodies, and communities. It blends self-defense and performing arts to produce an aesthetically beautiful martial art with a strong emphasis on respect for peers and teachers.

How do we approach Taekwondo?

At the beginning of every class, students bow to show their respect as they enter the room. Once everyone is lined up, students say the phrase “Bow to the Taekwondo master” in Korean (“Charyut, sabumnim-kae, kyung-nae”) and bow in respect to the Taekwondo Master and helpers. They then turn and bow to each other. A brief discussion of the week’s Black Belt Life Skill follows.

The class warms up and stretches together, then works on learning and developing Taekwondo techniques. At the end of most classes, students have an opportunity to practice by working with kicking targets and shields.

At the very end of Taekwondo class, students bow to the Taekwondo Master, the helpers, and each other before the students are dismissed to transition to their next class.
