| Self Defense
|| Self Control
| Self Defence (Hosinsul) is one of the four principles of taekwondo. Although taekwondo is a "self defense" sport in itself, it focusses on high and spinning kicks which are not very suitable for real life (street) application. Hosinsul is a mixture of all kinds of techniques, including grappling/locks as well as defending against armed attackers etc
|| Tae kwon do is also a way to build up more confidence. Rather than only knowing just learning taekwondo, we have to apply the principles of Taekwondo in our life. Though it is a martial art, its discipline, technique and mental training are the mortar for building sense of justice, fortitude, humility and resolve day to day issues with confidence.
|| Without self-control, a Taekwon-Do student is just like any fighter in the street. Loss of self-control is disastrous both in sparring and personal affairs. "The term of stronger is the person who wins over oneself rather than someone else", Lao Tzu
|Taekwondo helps channel aggressive energy into socially acceptable forms of personal confidence.
Anyone can appreciate and participate
in Taekwondo-men, women, and children for the age of four. Taekwondo training is particularly valuable for children because the discipline respect self-confidence and athletic abilities trained carries over into the students academies, social and family lives.
