Friday 6pm – 7pm
Instructor: Carina Glover (email@example.com)
Taekwondo classes at Ty Scowtio are run by Carina Glover. Carina holds a 5th Dan and is very dedicated to her students’ progress.
Taekwondo is not only a combat sport, but can be considered a way of life for some enthusiasts. The word Taekwondo comes from three Chinese/Korean words: Tae, meaning to kick or jump. Kwon, which means fist or hand; and Do, meaning “the way.”
UTI (United Taekwondo International) classes are different from other classes. You could say they are for people therefore wanting to learn Taekwondo as a martial art rather than as a competition sport.
One can say that basically UTI instructors aim to provide the following:
- To develop themselves together in Taekwondo.
- They wish to simply develop Taekwondo as a martial art.
- It is important for them to share their knowledge and insights gained with others.
- They feel that organisational activities often distract from their principal objective of practising Taekwondo.
- However they suffer frustration. This is as a result of the many (sub)divisions (of organisations and federations) and the ‘clan mentality’ (contact only with members of the own organisation) in the martial arts world.
