Welcome to the world of Taekwando. Taekwando is one of the famous martial arts originating from Asia.
From Wikipedia "Taekwondo is a Korean martial art and the national sport of South Korea. It is also regarded as the world's most popular martial art in terms of number of practitioners. Kyeorugi, or sparring, is an official Olympic sporting event. In Korean, tae 태 跆 means "foot"; kwon 권 拳 means "fist"; and do 도 道 means "way"; so taekwondo is loosely translated as "the way of the fist and foot"."
Taekwando, besides the benefits of learning self defense, also has the benefits of disclipining one self to exercise and keep fit.
The LTMC offers GTF (Global Taekwando Federation) Teakwando Martial Arts training.
