These individualshad become well versed in many Japanese martial arts during the occupation, such as Karate, Judo, Ju Jitsu and Aikido, along with western boxing.
Taekwondo is a martial art which has developed from the early days of the tribes living on the Korean Peninsula. Before the use of weapons, combat techniques were developed for means of defense andoffense.

Students practise at their own pace, as gently or aggressively as they like, and areencouraged to develop to the best of their individual abilities.
