Taekwondo is a Korean martial art and the national sport of Korea. Taekwondo may be loosely translated as "the art of the foot and fist". In the last 3 decades, Taekwondo has been a very popular sport and this form of martial art has resulted in the varied development into several domains: such as combat techniques, self-defense, sport, exercise, meditation, and philosophy. Taekwondo training generally includes a system of blocks, kicks, punches, and open-handed strikes and may also include various take-downs or sweeps, throws, and joint locks.

Renaissance incorporated Taekwondo into the PE curriculum to develop its students on the following fronts; self-defense, exercise and discipline. Taekwondo is offered on an annual basis for a 9 week term. The program is lead by a master instructor and is held at the Renaissance Youth center. This program is offered for grades KG through High School. Over the years, our students have become adept at this sport and have progressed to attain the different ranks. The junior ranks are usually identified by belts of various colors, depending on the school, so these ranks are sometimes called "color belts". Geup rank may be indicated by stripes on belts rather than by colored belts. Students begin at tenth geup (oftn indicated by a white belt) and advance toward first geup (often indicated by a red belt with a black stripe)
