Self defence, fitness, flexibility, concentration or just because its an interesting thing to do. Whatever your reason now is the time to try Tae Kwon Do with the Adelaide University club. For the remainder of 2001 Adelaide University Tae Kwon Do offers all students and staff a complimentary training session. Just turn up with something loose fitting to wear on Monday or Wednesday at 1pm in the Irene Watson Room on Level 5 or Tuesday 6.30pm in the Irene Watson Room, Level 5 of the Union Building.
For those unsure, Tae Kwon Do is a Korean martial art involving dynamic techniques of unarmed combat for self defence purposes, combining the skilled application of powerful punches, kicks, blocks, dodges and interceptions. Practitioners apply well trained hands, arms and feet to effect a practical and efficient system of self defence.
The physical exercise of Tae Kwon Do enables you to relax when the day has been stressful mentally through study. Similarly, the concentration and discipline developed during training aids comprehension and you can walk on campus at night with more confidence in your well being than a non practitioner. The above reasons are only the tip of the iceberg and many more factors encourage the massive amount of tertiary students involved in Tae Kwon Do.
Success on campus dates back 32 years for Adelaide University students. The amount of professionals who have been Tae Kwon Do practitioners is immense and the high percentage who continue to train upon graduation is a source of great pride to our club.
