What is Taekwondo?

Taekwondo is both an ancient Korean Martial Art, and a modern International Olympic sport.

Taekwondo is a mental and physical discipline designed over 2000 years ago with the ultimate goal being mental and physical health. That is the health of ourselves, our family and our friends.

Taekwondo serves as a means of self-protection, giving one the assurance of being able to do so if the need arises. Our program is styled to keep the body conditioned, and the mind clear. It provides confidence and self-control.

These goals are accomplished through the quality instruction received at UMAA, combined with your strong desire and regular training.
