The traditional unarmed Korean martial art. Literally, Tae means kicking. Kwon means punching, and Do refers to a way of life. Taken together, the aim of training in Taekwondo is to enable each student to achieve integrated control of body, mind and spirit to benefit not only one's martial arts accomplisments, but also one's entire way of thinking and living.
At Vermont Taekwondo Academy we nurture the positive attitudes and spirits of our students while addressing individual physical challenges. Students are taught to continually strive to uphold the five tenets of Taekwondo (courtesy, integrity, perserverence, self control, and indomitable spirit) while they are at the Dojang, as well as during their every day lives. Vermont Taekwondo Academy services the student as a whole regardless of age, ability or background.
Training at Vermont Taekwondo Academy includes practicing kicks and punches, learned choreographed patterns, self-defense and sparring techniques. There is a strong focus on improving overall fitness levels, flexibility, and core strength of students, as well as developing mental focus, self confidence and self control. At Vermont Taekwondo Academy students are encouraged to work together in a mutually supportive environment and in friendly competition.
