Why the name ICENI Taekwon-do?
Our Taekwon-do club name ICENI, comes from the ICENI tribe, whose warriors defended their way of life and their lands in this region thousands of years ago.
They fought with courage and indomitable spirit, standing up for what is true and just.
Symbolising something that we can all still identify with in todays modern world.
The Triskele (Triple Spiral) symbol the ICENI used is said to be the oldest symbol of spirituality.
The spirals symbolise the inner and outer worlds, and the themes of birth, death, and rebirth, as well as the unity of mental, physical, and spiritual self.
Woad is a blue coloured dye the ICENI used to paint symbols on themselves. We have named our Tiger “Woad”, who symbolises our fighting spirit!
mind, body, indomitable spirit
Also, in Taekwon-do competitions Hong is red and Chong is blue, so that’s why we have our Tiger image in both colours.
So now you now what ICENI stands for, come and join us!
