About Taekwon-do:

Taekwon-do is a fast-paced Korean martial art that can be used for defence and offence. This martial art is especially famous for its diversity of kicking techniques and suits people from different groups of age, both as a competitive and general fitness sport.

Taekwon-do develops physical features of the body, such as coordination, agility, mobility and general fitness level. Additionally, it improves focus, perseverance and self-confidence in facing new challenges.

Taekwon-do can roughly be divided into six forms: basic techniques, patterns, sparring, special techniques, power breaking and self-defence. Further information about Taekwon-do’s forms can be found from Internation Taekwon-do Federation’s or Finnish ITF Federation’s website:
