The art of Genesis Taekwondo is enriched with a long history dating prior to the first world war. The style of martial art we teach is based on ancient Korean teachings passed down to our master instructor from the original masters of Taekwondo. This ancient art has since saturated the world with taekwondo schools. At Genesis Taekwondo, our teachings are as close to its original form as possible. Genesis Taekwondo involves dynamic techniques of unarmed combat for self-defensive purposes, combining the skilled application of powerful punches, flying kicks, blocks, dodges and interceptions. Our practitioners use well trained hands, arms and feet to affect the rapid destruction of any attacker. The official founder of Genesis Taekwondo, Master Michael Harper, was trained by one of the original Masters of Taekwondo.
