Korean Art, Chung do Kwan Tae Kwon-Do, is based on the values
of Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit. Not
only is Tae Kwon-Do a valid means of self-defense, but it also increases
coordination, sharpens alertness, strengthens the body, and develops respect for
the self and others. The feeling of accomplishment gained by the student helps
develop self-confidence, which is carried over into everyday life. Tae Kwon-Do
can help the shy become more confident and outgoing, and can help curb hostility
through its emphasis on respect and discipline.
Tae Kwon-Do, which is more than 2,500
years old, is an excellent cardiovascular developer. The aerobic exercise is
ideal for weight loss, and control. Students experience muscular development and
toning. Class workouts refresh the body, and are great for stress release.
Flexibility, balance, and strength conditioning include stretching and yoga. Additionally, the training is just plain fun.
With a focus on Discipline, Courtesy and Respect, quality
instruction is presented with an emphasis on the true philosophy of Tae Kwon-Do.
As a way of life,
Tae Kwon-Do is based on the ethical and moral standards by which we can
live together in harmony. We seek to eliminate violence by deterring the strong
from oppressing the weak through developing a power that must be based on
humanity, justice, morality, wisdom and faith, thus helping to build a better
and more peaceful world.
