Taekwondo The way we flow Our hands and feet We put on show Jumping spinning in the air Striking out our target there This mighty form of self defence A contact sport so immense Spectacular performance of an art The hand and foot taking part Taekwondo Come on have ago Romanticism beauty show Throughout history we’ve been taught Mind and bodys' train of thought Discipline to enhance the spirit Systematic and scientific Physical fighter that truly feels Those traditional martial artist skills Taekwondo Such a calming flow Fluid movements fast or slow A graceful art that shapes mind and heart Physical state of harmony’s past Meeting a challenge with calm and peace Shapes and conditions the whole physique Brings well-being and inner strength Self-control and development So now your journey starts to begin The way of the fist and foot within © Copyright KC.Leake 18th May 2015 All Rights Reserved

Loved it. My young son took Taekwondo lessons. Could break a board with his foot... and was a brown belt... But couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag when needed... He did learn later tho... But the training was still good for him.

Kevin, brilliant write.... As as trustee of Deva Judokwai Sports and Community Centre I must say that my choice is 'The Gentle Way'.....although we do have an active Taekwondo club there also. Must admit though it is possibly not so gentle as to suit my 69 years now!....Ivor
