Tae Kwon Do is the art of self defense that originated in Korea. It is recognized as one of the oldest forms of martial arts in the world, reaching back over 2,000 years. The name was selected for its appropriate description of the art: Tae  (foot), Kwon  (hand), Do  (art).Today, it has become a global sport that has gained an international reputation, and stands among the official games in the Olympics.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport based on ground fighting and submission holds. BJJ focuses on the skill of taking an opponent to the ground & controlling the opponent by  using the principles of leverage, angles, pressure and timing. The desired outcome of Jiu-Jitsu is to achieve a non-violent submission of one’s opponent.
