Translated literally, Tae Kwon–Do means “Art of hand and foot techniques in self defense”. However, it is much much more than that. A holistic Martial Art of Mind and Body.
According to the founder of Tae Kwon–Do, General Choi Hong Hi the o b j e c t i v e s of Tae Kwon-Do are:
- To cultivate character
- To bring out one’s strong strength
- To trim and slim the body
- To display graceful techniques
- To cultivate one’s mind.
It is a ‘Way of Life’ and it touches very aspect of our existence. A Tae Kwon-Do student must strive to develop and achieve a balanced ‘Total Human Being’ with high moral character, strong mind and strong strengths (physical,
spiritual and mental) who will contribute towards building a
better and more peaceful world.
KidoKwan is a way of focusing one’s energy (KI) and achieve the Balance and Harmony of MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT for a ‘TOTAL HUMAN BEING’.
