Taekwondo is a discipline and uses sparring, breaking and forms to demonstrate skill and build confidence.


Sparring is a critical part of martial arts training. It teaches you distancing, footwork and applying techniques you learn in class. It puts the taekwondo student into a situation where they must respond quickly and accurately, just like a real world situation.


Breaking is a martial arts technique that is used in competition, demonstration and testing. Breaking is an action where a martial artist uses a striking surface to break one or more objects using the skills honed in their art form. Breaking builds confidence.


The taekwondo form is not intended as a literal depiction of a mock fight, but as a display of transition and flow from one posture and movement to another, teaching the student proper form and position. The form hones a student’s movements like stone sharpens iron.
