Why Learn Tae Kwon Do?

Tae Kwon Do is an extremely effective form of self-defence; it is also one of the best methods of achieving physical and mental fitness. Because Tae Kwon Do requires both upper and lower body striking skills, all parts of the body must be conditioned. The benefits are: increased power, speed, flexibility, strength, aerobic fitness and co-ordination, as well as weight loss and weight control. Tae Kwon Do’s non-physical benefits include the development of patience, determination, courtesy, and respect.
