Martial Arts in Perth, Western Australia
Traditional Taekwondo is a form of Taekwondo that was exported out of
Korea between 1950s and 1960s. It was developed mainly by Korean
Shotokan Karate instructors. This early form of Taekwondo is unlike the
sporting variety you see at the Olympics. Like Shotokan, it has powerful
and devastating hand techniques plus powerful and versatile kicks.
The architects of Taekwondo were looking to form a martial art catering
towards the needs of a newly developing Korean army. They redeveloped
Shotokan Karate patterns to form a new training program for army
personnel. These patterns make for a very effective training approach by
combining time-tested and modern applications. Read
