What is Scientia-Do?
Scientia-Do is a martial art club!
We are not a new “style” of martial arts. We are a club for people who simply wish to train in the martial arts. This is why we have such a unique name.
Scientia-Do comes from two sources - “Scientia” is a Latin word which roughly translates to “knowledge” and/or “skill” and “Do” is a term common to both the Japanese and Korean language, and it roughly translates to “the way of”. Hence, Scientia-Do means “the way of knowledge” or “the way of skill”.
Some of our members come to us interested in self-defence, fitness, strength, flexibility, and personal development. We try to develop all these through practicing strong and practical martial art techniques. There are two martial arts that make up the core of Scientia-Do training …
Tae Kwon-Do - a Korean martial art, characterised by its fast, powerful hand techniques and many high spinning and jumping kicks. This is the core art and the majority of the training we do.
Aikido - a Japanese martial art of throws and joint locking techniques, rolling & break falling.
