TAEKWON-DO & AUTISM By Pamela Byrne

5th Apr 2016

When we think of Taekwon-Do, we think of power, speed, concentration, skill and incredible technique. When we think of Autism, we think of speech difficulties, behavioral problems, heightened or decreased senses and brilliant minds. When we think of Taekwon-Do, we think of incredibile ability. When we think of Autism, we think of disability.
