Taekwondo is a martial art founded in the traditions and history of korea. There are millions of people worldwide who enjoy the self satisfaction that comes with being a student of taekwondo. It brings physical, mental, and spiritual oneness to a person, naming just a few of the benefits provided by practicing.

This site focuses more on the I.T.F.(International Taekwondo Federation) style, which tends to focus more on the traditonal values and older ways of taekwondo. You will also find a brief background on the W.T.F (World Taekwondo Federation) style, which is more grounded in competition. Also in these pages you will find out about the history of taekwondo. How students progress through the ranks from the beginning(white belt) up to 1st dan black belt, and the knowledge learned by a student as they progress.

It is important to note that this site was developed purely for educational purposes(my education) and as such I am open to criticism and suggestions for improvement via the Comments and Questions page, Thank you.
