Tae Kwon Do
Tae Kwon Do is a free-fighting combat sport where an individual uses their hands and feet to repel an opponent. Tae kwon do literally means the “way of kicking and punching”. It consists of sharp, strong angular movements with free flowing circular movements to produce a balance of beauty and power. Teakwood’s trademark is the kicking techniques, which are both spectacular and difficult. All the moves are based on the defensive attitude, which was originally developed for self-protection.

Equally important to Tae Kwon Do in being a superior art of self-defence, it is also a mental discipline.

Children must be 8 years and above.

Tai Chi
Tai Ch’i (also known as Taiji) is a Martial Art. All Martial Arts are characterised by their degree of hardness or softness. In this sense Tai Ch’i is soft. When practising the Tai Ch’i forms, each position cultivates and flows energy into the vital organs of the body. These movements are often described as “swimming on dry land”.

Most people are drawn to Tai Ch’i after watching a group practising. Without any particular explanation, we somehow accept that this beautiful and serene set of movements brings a feeling of personal harmony. It is a well known fact that the benefits of Tai Ch’i are considerable.
