Taekwondo 태권도Taekwondo Preschool

Taekwondo is known for its emphasis on high kicking and fast hand techniques, which distinguishes it from other popular martial arts and combat sports such as karate. However, the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) believes that because the leg is the longest and strongest limb a martial artist has, kicks thus have the greatest potential to execute powerful strikes without successful retaliation.

About Korean Language


In taekwondo, Korean language is often used. During tests practitioners are usually asked what certain Korean words used in class mean. These words are fairly common amongst taekwondo schools, but accuracy of pronunciation can vary greatly.

Taekwondo can also be a great way to learn the Korean language by engaging in conversations with practitioners while at school. Here is a basic list of commonly used words that might be expected. Knowing the fundamental basics is very important for your learning path as you build your skills and knowledge. When you reach senior belt you are expected to guide the junior belts when they are beginning Taekwondo such as showing by example.
