       Staying Fit Staying Alive!

      Security is the issue of increasing importance to all people, especially women. As many law enforcement authorities will tell you, a person who exudes an air of confidence is less likely  to be attacked by a would-be mugger.
    Along with developing the physical ability to defend yourself, comes the mental ability to survive in a given situation.  Development of this skill is based on the five tenets of Taekwon-Do.  The characteristics are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control and indomitable spirit.
     Certainly Taekwon-Do is not a panacea when one is seeking to become physically fit.  In fact, most Taekwon-Do practitioners engage in other athletic activities such as running, biking, swimming, skiing, weight-lifting, tennis, and racquetball.  The difference between other activities, for instance aerobics, strives for fitness but there is no other purpose for the movements practiced.  However, in Taekwon-Do, the ultimate goal is to be able to defend yourself (or a loved one), in a situation where physical harm is threatened.
      Taekwon-Do is the ideal alternative that combines fitness and safety to a safeguard against becoming a victim.  A person would be well-advised to seek a competent Taekwon-Do instructor to learn the skills that could last a lifetime or perhaps save a lifetime.
