About KA Martial Arts Franklin
Songahm Taekwondo is the style of martial arts practiced by KA Martial Arts students. While famous for its wide range of kicks and known as the “Kicking Art”, Taekwondo also emphasizes breaking power, such as splitting wood and bricks using only the bare hands and feet. Training involves a variety of techniques, to include punching, kicking, dodging, jumping, parrying and blocking. Taekwondo also focuses on sparring and learning formal patterns of movements called forms. Songahm Taekwondo is a style specifically developed over 20 years by Eternal Grand Master H.U. Lee to make it accessible to anyone willing to learn and to truly reflect Taekwondo and the strength and beauty of its kicking techniques.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt (10 belts total) is one of incremental learning and skill development that students of any age any fitness level can embark on.
