Taekwondo, a Korean martial art, literally translated means “the way of kicking and
punching”. The world's most popular martial art, Taekwondo is known for it's exciting
kicking techniques which employ the leg's greater reach and power (compared
to the arm). Students will train with an emphasis on discipline, respect, and self
control. Taekwondo promotes self esteem and confidence while improving strength,
coordination, concentration and flexibility, making it a great cross-training exercise for
sports and other athletics.
Our program is set in a structured environment where students develop and progress at their own pace. All students, regardless of ability will participate at all times – in Taekwondo, no one sits the bench. And it is one of the few athletic activities where parents and children can participate together. Whether for the physical fitness, attaining skills in self defense, or for just for the fun of it, Taekwondo is challenging and rewarding for the old and young alike. Classes are taught by Mr. Brett Williams and Mr. Bon Vu of the Rochester Taekwondo Club and will be open to ages 8 and up.
