International Taekwon-Do Club

 

WHY SHOULD I STUDY MARTIAL ARTS IN THIS CLUB?

We are a Taekwon-Do Club focused on the UD experience

 

Your life at UD and beyond will be enhanced by study in our club.

 

The International Taekwon-Do Club is a UD Recreational Sports Club. Youll workout with UD students and alumni, and learn the Korean martial art of Taekwon-Do focused on the UD environment. This will help you get or stay in shape, defend yourself, gain confidence, and have fun!

 

Our goals are simple:

 

  Help you defend yourself;

  Combine physical skills with mental discipline to enhance your life;

  Teach skills that you will use far beyond any English, History, or Math class to help you succeed in life.

 

How can our Club possibly do that? You will learn:

  To combine kicks and punches with releases and common sense to avoid danger and to be confident in any situation;

  Concentration and Focus, key mental traits of martial artists, and how to apply these skills to any aspect of your life;

  The rhythm of how YOU learn in a no-pressure atmosphere; knowing yourself is a key to future success.

 

As a student progresses in the club, other skills develop:

  concentration skills as applied to study or meditation;

  understanding of internal motivation;

  teaching as applied to public speaking skills;

  perseverance and encouragement as applied to positive attitude in life;

  leadership as applied to management in professional life.

 

A typical class lasts about one hour. First, well make sure everyone stretches out and warms up. Then we begin learning or reviewing techniques such as kicks, punches, and blocks. Well then use these in drills with heavy bags, pads, or other equipment you can really hit hard! Well have a self-defense or sparring time where you get to see how to apply the techniques. We try to rehearse situations where Taekwon-Do could help you. No experience is needed, just initiative and interest to learn.

 

Instructors are typically black belts. (Non-black belts also teach to enhance their skills and help build leadership qualities.) Our black belts do more than just give martial arts advice. Most are alumni or are senior professionals in industry, and can provide you with advice far beyond how to do a block or kick.
