Cardio Self Defense


    Taekwon do is a modern martial art with a history that spans back thousands of years in an ancient method of self-defense that has been refined with modern day physics to become one of the most powerful martial arts in existence.  It integrates the best foot,hand elbow and knee techniques,as well as joint locks and throws in a system of self defense combinations.

Taekwon-Do exemplifies the high standards set by the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF). It offers a beneficial program for all ages, that increases physical fitness and confidence, heightens mental alertness and has a strong ethical foundation best exemplified by the five tenants of Taekwon-Do: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit.


Cardio Self Defense differs in that it is more intent on the movements and raising the heart rate for effective calorie burning, rather than perfecting the techniques of the Martial Arts itself. This makes it more appealing to a wider range of people wanting to get fit and lose weight. Learning how to utilize parts of the body in generally unfamiliar ways, moves like blocking and attacking with the knees, can make people more aware of the capabilities of their own bodies, and that in turn can build confidence in what to do if they are attacked. The added flexibility that cardio Self Defense workouts provides to the body is also of great benefit in any form of self defense.
