Indomitable Spirit Martial Arts is a family orientated Taekwon-Do School and was founded in August of 1984. Classes are available for both children and adults, beginner to advanced.
There are many things that people find that they like about Taekwon-Do. For many, these reasons are personal and unique. However, here are some benefits that you can expect to experience at Indomitable Spirit Martial Arts:
Self Defense: At Indomitable Spirit Martial Arts, Taekwon-Do instruction is focused on teaching a highly effective form of self defense. You will be taught techniques that will neutralize an attack and how to take control of the situation not just physically, but mentally as well. Every exercise, that is practiced, from blocking drills and patterns that ingrain the techniques into instinct, to free sparring that teaches how to see attacks coming, to physical conditioning, helps prepare the student to respond properly in a self defence situation.
Physical Fitness: In order to perform the advanced techniques of Taekwon-Do students must continually improve their level of fitness. For many people, this byproduct of the art becomes a reason in itself for continuing training. Physical activity includes aerobic (blocking drills and forms) as well as anaerobic activity (sparring), strength training (pushups and squats), and stretching (dynamic and passive). Regular practice will help you develop your body, maintain your health, and give you more energy.
Mental Clarity: Whether it is doing one more push up than you thought you could do, controlling your body through a complicated form that required both strength and balance, or focusing your energy into a punch that will break a board, Taekwon-Do demands a firm control of mind over body. As the body becomes a physical manifestation of the mind, inattention, confusion, and lack of resolve will show themselves physically. Likewise, clarity of thought, focus, and confidence will result in clean, quick, crisp techniques. For many people, the strength of will and clarity of thought that is developed in the Dojang goes beyond Taekwon-Do and into daily life.
In addition to the higher level mental benefits, many people find that they enjoy Taekwon-Do, just as they will many other sports. It can be challenging, exciting, and accessible for everybody regardless of age or gender.
