DEFINITION OF TAEKWON-DO

To put it simply Taekwon-Do is a version of unarmed combat designed for the purpose of self-defence. It is more than just
that, however. It is the scientific use of the body in the method of self-defence; a body that has gained the ultimate use of its
facilities through intensive physical and mental training.
It is a martial art that has no equal in either power or technique. Though it is a martial art, its discipline, technique and
mental training are the mortar for building a strong sense of justice, fortitude, humility and resolve. It is this mental
conditioning that separates the true practitioner from the sensationalist, content with mastering only the fighting aspects of
the art.
This is one of the reasons that Taekwon-Do is called an art of self-defence. It also implies a way of thinking and life,
particularly in instilling a concept and spirit of strict self-imposed discipline and an ideal of noble moral rearmament. The
nearest description of it is almost a cult.
Translated literally "Tae" stands for jumping or flying, to kick or smash with the foot. "Kwon" denotes the fist-chiefly to
punch or destroy with the hand or fist. "Do" means an art or way - the right way built and paved by the saints and sages in
the past.
