Our goal is provide quality instruction in the traditional
Korean style of the Martial Arts - Taekwondo - which means, literally translated,
"The Way of the Hand and Foot".
What is Taekwondo?
More than simply a sport or means of self defense, Taekwondo
is a way of life. Its ideals date back to ancient Confucians and Buddhists.
These ideals include: Loyalty to country, Obedience to parents, Trustworthiness
to friends, Respect toward teachers and elders, and Finishing what you
Focus: A Key Benefit
Awareness of the mind and of the world around us -- focus
-- is an central part of Taekwondo training. Students develop the ability
to focus while learning the moves and routines, or forms, of Taekwondo.
This skill carries over into everyday life, improving study and work habits,
active listening ability, and self-protection skills. Awareness of oneself,
of the world around us, and of harmony with nature are strongly emphasized
in the study of Taekwondo.
We emphasize to our students that violence is to be avoided
in the face of conflict. The true student of Taekwondo will walk away
from the taunts of a bully, rather than show him up with a kick or punch.
We teach students to block and evade strikes, and to use fighting skills
only as a last resort.
