About Bowen Taekwondo Club

Bowen Secondary School Taekwondo Club was established in 2000 as a full-fledged CCA. ‘Tae’ means to kick or smash with the feet, ‘Kwon’ implies punching or destroying with the hands or fists and ‘Do’ means the art or the way. Hence, Taekwondo means the art of foot and hand fighting, emphasised in leg techniques and gravity defying aerial kicks. ‘The way’ indicates not only the physical but also the spiritual aspect of this form of martial art.

Therefore, Bowen Taekwondo Club’s training revolved around two main activities:

a. Poom Sae demonstration (Taegeuk/Poomsae Mastery or Mastery of martial art forms)

b. Sparring (Hand-to-Hand Combat/Unarmed Combat Mastery)

  4. Dear Sir,

    We are organising a Chun Khun Do/ TaeKwon-Do seminar on the 17th and 18th of September at the Martial Arts Room at RP. Enclosed the brochure. We wish to encourage all martial arts students to take part as this is open to all forms of martial arts. It encompasses self defense techniques.

    The instructor is Supreme Master KIM BOK MAN, Technical Founder of TaeKwon-Do and Father of TaeKwon-Do in Singapore so to speak as he was instrumental in bringing TaeKwon-Do to Singapore and Malaysia in the 60’s and 70’s.

    Every 5 students who sign up, 1 attend free. Therefore if combined, the cost will be less than $ 200 for the 2 full day seminars, which includes training fees, t shirt and weapon stick, lunch and drinks.

    Detailed brochure can be provided upon request.

    Regards,
    Dr William Choo
    5th Degree Black Belt
