Taekwondo is a form of Korean martial arts. In Korean, “tae” means "to strike or break with foot", “kwon” means "to strike or break with fist" and “do” means "way", "method" or "art". Thus, taekwondo may be loosely translated as "the art of the foot and fist" or "the art of kicking and punching". The sport combines combat techniques, self-defence, and exercise. This sport also inculcates discipline and determination in pupils. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. Pupils practise hard in preparation for their grading tests.
In Maris Stella, the Taekwondo Club has been established for more than ten years. Pupils are taught basic poomsae patterns for the different coloured belts and sparring moves. Our pupils are encouraged to participate in the Inter Primary Schools Taekwondo Championships and Invitational Tournaments organised by the Singapore Taekwondo Federation.
