Tae Kwon Do Westchester: White Plains, New Rochelle,
Tae Kwon Do is the most recent of the modern Asian martial arts. Tae Kwon Do developed via a
combination of Karate and indigenous Korean martial arts,
emphasizing competition, katas and striking similarly. However, Tae Kwon Do also emphasizes kicks,
especially high kicks. Tae Kwon Do classes are similar to
Karate in that they may include stretching, basic movements, forms and competition. Quite often,
Tae Kwon Do training is partnered with Hapkido, a Korean
martial art that developed from Daito Ryu Aiki Jujitsu, and thus shares the same roots as Aikido.
Application of self defense technique may also derive from
Hapkido. While Tae Kwon Do itself emphasizes external (hard) power and teaches destructive
technique initially followed by control, partnering with Hapkido
may change this dynamic. Weapons use in Tae Kwon Do is an additional element of practice.
Exercise is often aerobic.
In Westchester County, Tae Kwon Do is in Northern Scarsdale and
Mount Vernon as well as New Rochelle, White Plains &
