Miramar Taekwon-Do

​​​​​​​

The Miramar Club was first established in 1975 and is an official member of the International Taekwon-Do Association.

What is Taekwon-Do?

Taekwon-Do was first developed by a Korean Army General, Gen. Choi Hong Hi, in the 1950s and 1960s.

“Tae” means to jump or kick with the foot; “Kwon” means to punch with the hand or fist; and “Do” means art or way.

Taekwon-Do is also an exciting sport with many spectacular events such as sparring, patterns, power breaking and the high flying special techniques competition. But it is also a martial art suitable for all ages and abilities.

Classes are run for everyone from beginning to advanced levels, including special classes for children.

Taekwon-Do was designed for self defence, and there is a strong emphasis on the moral aspects of the art, such as discipline, humility and self control. These non-physical aspects are known as the “Do”. 

Members of International Taekwon-Do are taught aspects of “Do” as a part of the grading syllabus and are encouraged to live by the tenets of Taekwon-Do, which are:

Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control and Indomitable Spirit.

It is a popular activity for families given that all members of the family can practice Taekwon-Do and be challenged as little or as much as they like.
