|The Regina West Zone Taekwon-Do Club, an affiliate of the
West Zone Board, offers instruction in the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF) style of Taekwon-Do.
The West Zone Taekwon-Do Club classes are orientated towards a recreational family program for fitness, coordination and self-discipline while learning the self defense art of Taekwon-Do. The classes are suitable for all age groups and fitness levels.
The Saskatchewan Taekwon-Do Federation International (STFI) provides technical direction. Master Clint Norman, ITF 8th Dan Black Belt and his assistants provide instruction. The STFI is a member of the Canadian Taekwon-Do Federation International.
Taekwon-Do is not only physical training. It also teaches the student to observe and put to use the “Tenents” of Taekwon-Do. The Tenents of Taekwon-Do are as follows: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit.
The results of Taekwon-Do training for children and teens are improved physical and mental fitness and a heightened level of self-esteem. Taekwon-Do training will surely aid in the development of successful and respected members of the community. Adults of all ages benefit from the exercise leading to improved fitness and enjoyment of a healthier lifestyle.
Classes are held Monday and Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoon in the gymnasium at Henry Janzen School, 222 Rink Avenue. You may attend any class as a spectator or wear sweat pants and a T-shirt to participate as a beginner. There is ongoing registration for beginners and you may register in person at any class. A discount is available when registering more than one family member. A valid Community Association membership is required, which is available from the club.
Taekwon-Do is a version of unarmed combat designed for the purpose of self-defense. It is an "art" as well as a series of techniques because it also implies a way of thinking and living.
Taekwon-Do can be loosely translated. "Tae" stands for jumping or flying, to kick with the foot. "Kwon" means the fist, punching or destroying with the hand or fist. "Do" means an art or way, the right way built and paved by the sages of the past.
Together "Taekwon-Do" indicates the mental training, the self-discipline and the techniques of unarmed combat for the purpose of self-defense.
Wrongly applied, Taekwon-Do can be a dangerous weapon. Therefore, mental training, self-discipline and a sense of right must always be emphasized to students.
