about the art - Tae Kwon Do in Glendale & Surprise

Tae Kwon Do literally means, (tae) to smash with the feet, (kwon) to punch with the fist, (do) the art or method; in essence, the art of kicking and punching.

Historically, 1955 signaled the beginning of Tae Kwon Do as a formally recognized art in Korea. During that year a special board was formed which included leading masters, historians and prominent leaders of society. A number of names for the new martial art were submitted. On the 11th day of April, the board, summoned by General Choi Hong Hi, decided on the name of Tae Kwon Do—which he himself had submitted.

Tae Kwon Do replaced the different and confusing terms such as Dang Soo, Gong Soo, Tae Kyon and Kwon Bup.

At our Academy, the teachings of the legendary Grandmaster Hee Il Cho are taught. These techniques are not limited to just dynamic kicking, but also incorporate western-style boxing and kick boxing techniques. Grappling was added to complete the curriculum which concentrates on the four zones of self-defense.

Arrowhead Martial Arts Academy has incorporated weapons and a demo team—"Team Thunder"—to round out our curriculum
