Taekwando

The Taekwondo CCA aims to nurture character through the discipline and values of martial arts. Students undergo intensive training to develop skills required for grading and competition. Selected students attend additional training to prepare them for National School competitions.

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art that was developed by Korean masters of Okinawan karate, taekkyeon and other Korean traditions in the 1940s. This martial art combines self-defense and combat techniques with exercise and sport. Sport taekwondo is divided into two main styles with differences in techniques, but taekwondo in general emphasises throwing punches and kicks from a mobile stance. Taekwondo was introduced worldwide in the 1960s when the original masters of taekwondo were dispersed into various countries around the world.

Uniform – Dobok or Gi
Dobok or 도복 (in korean) is the uniform that is worn by Taekwondo practitioners while partaking in the sports. It embodies the pride of the Taekwondo since it is done through training, sparring, competitions and even grading.

Poomsae
Poomsae (Forms) is ultimately the foundation of what you are taught in Taekwondo. Poomsae consists of the various fundamental stances, blocks, punches and kicks logically arranged in a meaningful order in response to attacks from multiple imaginary assailants attacking you from different directions. Each Poomsae consists of an established sequence of movements beginning with a blocking technique and ending with an attacking technique. All techniques, which are taught in the studies of Taekwondo, are used.

Kyorugi
Kyorugi is the term used for sparring. Sparring is one of the best ways to put all the basic or advanced techniques you have learned to-date, into real action. Keep in mind you should approach sparring with the true Martial Arts attitude by respecting your opponent’s capabilities. Also, you must always strive to put what you know to best use. Sparring demands that you bring together all that you have learnt as far as blocking, punching and kicking techniques, into your daily training.
