Did you know?
Norman has been teaching Taekwon-Do since 1997 with Magua Taewkown-Do being established in 2001. Cardio Martial Arts/Kickboxing being tought since 2001 and officially at FFC in 2005 (making our club one of the first to do this in SA and one of most experienced in SA)
MTG Taekwon-Do the only club in the country directly connected to the original Founder of Taekwon-Do’s Son, Grand Master Choi Jung Hwa, (known as military Taekwon-Do, as that is where it was first developed), therefore being the closest to the source of this diverse and impressive martial art.
Authentic Taekwon-Do is also the most modern of the traditional martial arts! Steeped in ancient asian martial arts techniques as well as western influenced techniques. All evolved and tweaked to be based on modern biomechnics and scientific principles which aims to build techniques which are effiecint, powerful & also safer on ones joints/body.
Taekwon-Do is for all ages and not only reserved for the young and fit. Our classes suite all capabilities and we proudly have older members aswell. Authentic Taekwon-Do also is about much more than only kicking! While Tkd is known for its kicks, because they grab alot of attention, the entire body is used as a tool for self defence.
Taekwon-Do (styles as a whole) is the most popular and widespread marial art on the planet. Our ITF organisation is one of the widest spread martial arts organisations in the world in its own right.
Yes, it is a serious martial art, but great fun aswell!
