What is Taekwon-Do all about

Once you reach 2nd Kup you are nearly the finished article, all the skills are there, they just need polishing. At this level you will be introduced to advanced one step sparring, where you have to deal with any attack (not just an obverse punch) and demonstrate to your instructor how you are able to despatch your attacker efficiently. You will also be eligible for the coveted black club suit

Participation

Grading Pattern - Hwa-Rang


Hwa Rang is named after the Hwa Rang youth group which originated in the Silla dynasty around 600 AD. This group eventually became the actual driving force behind the unification of the three kingdoms of Korea. The 29 movements refer to the 29th Infantry Division where Tae Kwon-Do developed into maturity.
