HARMONY TaeKwon-Do

TaeKwon-Do is one of the world’s most popular martial arts and now older adults and seniors have the opportunity to learn ITF TaeKwon-Do too. TaeKwon-Do literally translates to the art of kicking and punching. While traditional Taekwon-do focuses on kicking and punching, Harmony Taekwon-Do focusses on the “art”. Harmony TaeKwon-Do offers countless physical and mental benefits to the practitioner by adapting the traditional TaeKwon-Do program to be more suitable and harmonising for the older adult. Ms. Nicole Stratychuk, 5th Degree Black Belt Instructor is certified by the International TaeKwon-Do Federation to teach the Harmony TaeKwon-Do program. She has been practicing TaeKwon-Do for 25 years and looks forward to bringing this exciting new program to Lethbridge. Wear comfortable clothes, indoor shoes and bring a water bottle. Instructor is Nicole Stratychuk.
