Did you know that our style of Taekwon-Do has its origins in Shotokan karate? The founder of TKD, General Choi Hong Hi, studied it prior to forming TKD. Watch how a Shotokan karate practitioner compares and contrasts some of our movements with his art.

Taekwon-Do aims to build a more peaceful world - a lofty ideal indeed. But what can the individual do to help achieve this?
Individuals who have a sense of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit can influence their family. Working outwards, families influence communities, who in turn can bring change to cities, countries and then the world.
When we actively work toward breaking down barriers due to differences in culture and beliefs, then we foster greater understanding and tolerance of people with different ethnicities to ours, which in turn leads to a more peaceful world.
In Palmerston North, tomorrow marks the beginning of the Festival of Cultures with the Brazilian inspired lantern parade at Te Marae o Hine / The Square, and then on Saturday at 10:00 am is World Fair Day featuring crafts, food, and performances.

Inspiration from the Dragon's Den - January 26th 2021
Fear is not your enemy. It is a powerful source of energy that can be harnessed and used for your benefit. Often we are afraid of a thing, or an act, or a new challenge because it is an unknown quantity or factor. Everyone hates the unknown, the unexpected.
The fear of failing or false expectations appearing real hampers everyone at sometime or another throughout their lives.
What we need to do is adjust our attitude towards fear. What holds us back is not fear itself. The tighter we hold on to the attitude that fear is something ‘bad’ and we can’t do the things we want until it goes away, the more stuck we will be.
Genuine confidence is not the absence of fear; it is a transformed relationship with fear. When we realise this, we can use it to our benefit, see it as an indicator for growth and a guide towards removing barriers that hamper our improvement.
