Training as a Wings Academy Taekwondo student centers on the study and practice of three main aspects of Taekwondo.
Board breaking is a demonstration of speed, power, and accuracy in combination which results in an exciting technical display. Often times, extravagant showings of board breaks are integral parts of demonstrations to the public generating excitement for the sport. This is a testing requirement for belt promotion and is often showcased as an event at tournaments and competitions.
Wings Academy Taekwondo does a number of demonstrations in an effort to bring attention and excitement to Sport Taekwondo in our home state of Wisconsin. We have participated in Taekwondo demonstrations at Milwaukee's Grand Avenue Mall, The Bayview Bash Festival, The 4th of July Community Event in Bayview, The Mispibo Fitness Autism Speaks Conference, and numerous other venues. It is our hope that through increased exposure people will seek out and participate in one of the most exciting martial arts available today. Through education and consistent performance, Wings Academy Taekwondo hopes to make the opportunities afforded by Sport Taekwondo widely available in the Greater Milwaukee Area and increase the involvement of the state of Wisconsin in the larger world of Taekwondo competition.
