What Does Taekwon-Do Offer You?

Taekwon-Do can give you the ability and confidence to defend yourself powerfully and effectively. Whilst learning the various techniques you will also be developing a high level of fitness, flexibility and self-discipline. Rarely does another martial art offer the same strong blend of intense body conditioning and defensive skill development. Training in Taekwon-Do is very enjoyable and can bring with it a range of benefits:

Self-defence skills - You will learn basic and advanced offensive and defensive skills which will increase your ability to defend yourself from attack by one or more opponents. Significant training time is spent on defending against knives and other hand weapons, and against multiple opponents.

Moral code - Courtesy and respect toward others is an important part of training. Mental and spiritual development goes hand-in-hand with physical training in Taekwon-Do.

Improved health & fitness - Taekwon-Do sessions contain cardiovascular workouts, callisthenics, endurance training and all over strength development. This promotes weight loss, muscle development and suppleness.

Confidence and self discipline - Almost all people training in Taekwon-Do say that their confidence has improved and that this positivity extends beyond training into other areas of their lives.

Social interaction - Getting the most from Taekwon-Do is often about group spirit and teamworking with other students to develop your skills. Mutual encouragement and the intensity of training makes for a friendly and positive class environment.

Taekwon-Do classes are generally 1-1:30 hours in duration. Special training classes and seminars may be longer. The classes are generally split into 2 or 3 phases with the first phase almost always being a warm-up/fitness regime. Training may be pad-work, patterns, technical kicking, blocking, weapon-defence, grappling, sparring and various other types of training to develop technique, accuracy, speed and power. Clothing should be loose-fitting and stretchable - for example tracksuit bottoms and T-shirt - and no footwear is required.

Brief History

Taekwon-Do means literally "The art of hand and foot". It was founded by General Choi Hong Hi (9th Degree) of Korea. Taekwon-Do gained official recognition on April 11th, 1955. It was developed as the result of many years of research into other martial arts and into the application of modern physics to blocking and striking techniques. The aim with Taekwon-Do was to develop the most powerful martial art in existence, and science was the tool used to make this possible.

Who is Taekwon-Do For?

Taekwon-Do is hugely popular in Australia and around the world because it is very inclusive. Anybody who wishes to learn the art can do so, at a pace that suits you. Young or old, whatever your size or build, male or female - all can benefit from Taekwon-Do training. Children greatly enjoy Taekwon-Do training because of its high level of focussed activity. They tend to develop increased physical coordination, discipline and concentration which carries over into their other activities at school and elsewhere. Taekwon-Do emphasizes hard work and courteous behaviour from students without sacrificing fun and enjoyable training. Many people with disabilities study Taekwon-Do and gain greatly from it because training is flexible and geared to ability.

Taekwon-Do Gradings

Gradings are the means by which a student progresses through the Taekwon-Do syllabus. These are testing sessions held every three months to assess a students readiness to promote to a higher grade or belt. Taekwon-Do belts are: White - Yellow - Green - Blue - Red - Black. Each colour belt has one stage in between called a "Tag" and black belts are graded from 1st to 9th Degree. Typical time from white belt to 1st Degree black belt with regular training is 4 years. Being part of the International Taekwon-Do Federation, any grades that you achieve with Parallax Taekwon-Do are recognised Worldwide.
