in Stillorgan Taekwon-Do School. The
sisters (13) from Sandyford have been learning this Korean art of self defense
at St. Laurence's Community Centre, Kilmacud for just over a year.
Green belt symbolises that the girls are proficient at defending themselves with
a variety of blocks, kicks, strikes and punches.
how does he tell the girls apart, their instructor Floyd Keane (4th
Degree Black belt) said "They're completely different in their attitude and
even some of their techniques are different.
They're like Yin and Yang".
techniques are based on scientific principles and depend on skill rather than
brute strength so it is suitable for people of all ages and size.
