Link’s Martial Arts Tae Kwon Do
Tae = foot Kwon = hand Do = way
Tae Kwon Do is one of the most recognized martial arts around today. Tae Kwon Do is known as “the art of kicking and punching”. There are many varied styles of Tae Kwon Do, with many different “poomse” or forms that can be studied. Most hand and foot techniques are similar throughout the Tae Kwon Do styles. The most basic being the front kick, roundhouse kick and side kick. However Tae Kwon Do is most recognized for its high jumping, high flying and spinning kicks.

Our curriculum has been carefully laid out for each age group:
In the Adult Student Success Journal, Curriculum covers instruction in forms and one steps, hand and foot techniques individually and in sets, self defense, siniwalis, KDM, point sparring skills, knowledge and most importantly personal self-improvement. Each rank has corresponding test sheets and the students know ahead of time what material they will be tested on.
The Junior Black Belt “Youth” Student Success Journal, Curriculum covers instruction in forms, hand and foot techniques individually and in sets, self defense, siniwalis, point sparring skills, knowledge and most importantly personal self-improvement. At each level a student must complete an“Are you Ready?” worksheet. This worksheet insures that no student is prematurely advanced in rank. Youth students must meet the testing requirements in 3 areas. Attendance, Journal Work, and Curriculum.
