TaeKwonDo is one of the most systematic and physically dynamic Korean traditional martial arts, with powerful stances and active movements. TaeKwonDo (TKD) literally translates into “the art of hand and foot”: Tae ("kick”) + Kwon (“fist”) + Do (“art" or "method"). It is a discipline that enhances the student’s spirit and life through training the mind and body. At FHMA, students are educated by an award-winning Hall-of-Fame Master in fighting techniques, street self-defense (including de-escalation of confrontations) and poomse (forms). The curriculum is designed to challenge each student physically and mentally and to impart skills that build a sense of confidence as well as foster a peaceful state of harmony in our community and beyond.
