TEWKSBURY — At Tuesday’s Community Market, a women’s self-defense group from Kwon’s Taekwondo gave a demonstration.
Located on Main Street in Tewksbury, Kwon’s Taekwondo was founded by Grandmaster Young A. Kwon in 1989. They offer several different Taekwondo programs, at all levels from beginner to advanced. The programs offered include the Children’s Program (ages 5 to 12), the Teen and Adult Program, and the Family Program, where children and parents take the class together.
Aside from acting as a form of physical exercise, Taekwondo also has many other benefits. Some include improved concentration, improved academic performance, heightened self-esteem, self respect and discipline, and stress reduction.
All instructors at Kwon’s Taekwondo are certified by the Kukkiwon (World Taekwondo Headquarters), the certifying body of the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF), which governs the Sport of Taekwondo.
In addition to teaching at and operating Kwon’s, Grandmaster Kwon also has written a book, entitled “108 Years: A Korean Way of Health.” The book is available for purchase on Amazon.
