I am also a Taekwondo (WTF style) athlete competing in style (poomsae) tournaments, with previous experience in sparring competitions as well.

During the presentation I will briefly talk about the history of this Korean martial art and the philosophy behind its manner of practice. I will also perform and demonstrate certain techniques used in everyday training sessions, as well self-defense techniques that can be used by anyone, with or without prior martial art experience.
