Tae Kwon Do

Tae Kwon Do is a Korean martial art that combines combat and self-defense techniques with sport and exercise. The club is divided into competitive and non-competitive sections, where members can choose whether they want to compete or just practice and join in social fun. Competition is divided into sparring and forms. All people, any experience level, are welcome.

~Competitions and Goals:
As a club, Pepperdine Taekwondo hopes to enhance the collegiate experience through opportunities to learn and participate in taekwondo with other intercollegiate teams. For serious competitors, the yearly National Collegiate Taekwondo Championships provides an avenue to make the United States National Team and compete at the World University Games.

At the 2014 National Competition at UC Berkeley, Pepperdine Taekwondo experienced success as competitor Young Kim reached the quarterfinals of the tournament. For the 2015 National Competition at Princeton (tentative location), we are looking to take 4-6 competitors for the tournament.
