The UMBC Tae Kwon Do Club is a free student organization
where you can learn the Korean martial art of Tae Kwon Do.
Our students are taught in the style of the World Tae Kwon
Do Federation (W.T.F.). Our purpose is to become more aware of one's
mental and physical potential and to develop the attributes of courtessy,
integrity, perseverance, self control, and indomitable spirit.
(The Tenets, or Principles, of Tae Kwon Do)
All ranks and fitness levels are welcome! New students are invited
to come to any class. Wear something loose and be prepared to sweat!
If you like what you see, a uniform can be purchased from the club.
