SC Taekwondo is a student governed Club Sport open to all members of the Smith College student body. We practice regularly to prepare for promotion tests, collegiate tournaments, and performances. Most of all, we practice for our own physical, mental, and spiritual benefit and enjoyment.
We welcome anyone, regardless of martial arts experience, to observe or join our club during our scheduled practices. We ask only that newcomers and returning members submit the required Student Athlete Forms (See FAQ) annually, prior to their practice of each year. We also ask each person who enters the practice space to be willing to follow dojang etiquette.
We practice both the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) and International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF) styles of poomsae/forms, but we practice only WTF Olympic style sparring. Promotion tests are administered and students are certified under the WTF, which is governed by Kukkiwon Headquarters in South Korea.
