Whether you call it Taekwondo, Tae Kwon do or Tae kwon-do, you will find it here in Brisbane (Australia) with Sun Bae Taekwondo & Hapkido. As Master Instructor, I welcome you to one of the most exciting and effective forms of self defence, of which I have been teaching in Brisbane since 1983 after having the rare and unique opportunity to learn directly from Korean Grandmasters in both the Arts of Taekwondo and Hapkido. No doubt, your interest in martial arts likely flows from the ongoing need for a fun style of health and fitness or the need for self-confidence or perhaps just purely the need for self defence. In any case, Sun Bae classes offer a unique style, combining the ancient Korean Arts of Taekwondo and Hapkido self defence together with the excitement of Olympic Style competition. Men, women and children around Brisbane from ages 5 to 55+ make up the broad range of Sun Bae students, attending centres throughout all of Brisbane in separate classes for children and adults. Within 3 months, at a pace of two lessons per week, you will have the ability to defend yourself with some simple kicks and strikes. Not only that, but your mental preparedness will be much improved.
Taekwondo" literally means the "art of hand and foot fighting". The origin of Taekwondo is obscured by many thousands of years of Korean history. The first organised development of Taekwondo training is thought to be around the first Century on the peninsula of Korea over 2000 years ago when the Three Kingdoms (Silla, Goguryeo and Baekje) ruled. However, it is estimated that Taekwondo was practised in a primitive form in ancient times as far back as 5000 years ago. In those ancient times, there was no means other than bare hands and the body for a weapon so it was natural to assume that bare-hand fighting techniques were developed.
It is suggested that Taekwondo was first practised as a method of evading attacks from wild animals as well as a useful tool in hunting for food and also as a means of strengthening the body. Techniques were learned from the experience of fighting against beasts whose defensive and offensive motions were the subject of analysis and mimicking. Since attacks could originate from any direction, movements were developed that allowed reflexes to counter from any direction. Specific patterns were formed for instinctive self defence which became a series of blocks, kicks and strikes. These patterns are still practised today.

Evidence of Origin
There is some speculation that Taekwondo is not indigenous to Korea and that it is a break off of Chinese and other Asian martial arts.
The legendary origins of the Eastern (Chinese) martial arts are generally ascribed to a Monk from India called Bodhidharma. According to legend and ancient Chan Buddist texts, Bodhidharma came to China in the Sixth Century AD where he founded a monastery at Shaolin-So. He began to teach breath control and meditation. But his followers were physically incapable of practising the strenuous techniques, so he taught them methods of strengthening their bodies and their spirit. These methods later combined with Taoism and I-Ching to form the basis for the Chinese martial arts of Kung Fu, Kempo and Tai Chi Chuan.
In Korea, the first tangible evidence of Taekwondo dates from the Three Kingdoms period where a mural painted on the wall of the Myung-Chong tomb located in Tunsko (Capital of Goguryeo) and built in the Goguryeo Kingdom sometime in the First Century . The mural shows two youths sparring. Other tombs found in this period contain similar murals which show figures practising martial arts. Accordingly, there is evidence that Korea was developing it's own martial art well before Bodhidharma arrived in China and we can be sure that Taekwondo is of Korean origin.
