Students will learn the kicking and punching techniques used in Sport Taekwondo competition, as well as traditional forms and stances. Class is dynamic and upbeat, and the students will get a good workout. Class is intended to be introductory, so students that have done a significant amount of Taekwondo before will probably not find the class to be very interesting.
