Taekwondo: Martial Arts

Taekwondo Fosters Strength and Powerful Relationships

Martial arts is a term applied to a variety of different disciplines, with karate being one of the most well-known. While these disciplines share a common origin in the Far East, there are variations in the movements of each. The biggest difference between karate and taekwondo is that karate’s focus is more on hand techniques, while taekwondo’s focus is on kicking techniques. Our legs are faster and stronger than our arms, which makes them valuable for self-defense. Using taekwondo allows you to create distance between you and an attacker and keep you out of the range of injury.
