Harlow & Sawbridgeworth Tae Kwon Do
Harlow & Sawbridgeworth Tae Kwon Do

What is Tae Kwon Do?

It is a version of an ancient form of unarmed combat practiced for many centuries in the Orient. Tae Kwon Do became perfected in its present form in South Korea.

 

Translated from Korean, "Tae" literally means to jump, kick or smash with the foot. "Kwon" means a fist,  chiefly to punch or destroy with the hand or fist. "Do" means art, way or method. Tae Kwon Do indicates the technique of unarmed combat for self defence, involving the skilled application of punches, kicks, blocks, dodges and interception with the hands, arms and feet to the rapid destruction of the opponent.

 

To the Korean people Tae Kwon Do is more than a mere use of skilled movements. It also implies a way of thinking and life, particularly instilling a concept and spirit of strict self-imposed discipline and an ideal of noble moral re-armament.

 

In these days of violence and intimidation, which seem to plague our modern societies, Tae Kwon-Do enables the weak to possess a fine weapon to defend his or herself and defeat the opponent as well. When wrongly applied it can be a lethal weapon.

COVID-19 & GRADING INFO

BLACK BELT GRADINGS

 

Alternative dates for these gradings are currently being considered in all areas.  These dates will be released as soon as venues become available.  The one certainty we know is that the gradings WILL take place as soon as we are given the option to do so within the new laws of each home nation.

 

 

COLOURED BELT GRADINGS

 

As many of you are due to have coloured belt gradings over the next few weeks, the Committee have decided to accept video or other media based gradings until further notice.  In order for these gradings to be authenticated they should be filmed in a safe environment and forwarded to your relevant examiner who will review then and return the results to you.  Examiner and TAGB fees should be paid as normal.  Some gradings may also be carried out using Zoom or other media formats.  Please consult your Grading Examiner before submitting your gradings. Also, remember, that in order to grade all students must have a current membership licence tonight


Below info is from 2nd December
