As a new student of Taekwondo, you are entering into a very ancient system for training both your mind and body. Taekwondo is a martial art which developed in Korea over thousands of years. Taekwondo means literally “the art of striking with the hand and kicking with the foot.” It is known for its many beautiful kicks.
Our style of Taekwondo is known as Choong Sil Kwan. This means, literally, the School of Constant and Never Ending Improvement. In other words, everyone in our school, even your instructors and black belts are working to become better.
The first stage of Improvement that a student enters is the Imagination level. Everyone has different reasons for training in Taekwondo, but we all share the fact that we have a dream. At this point we emphasize the importance of not only visualizing results but also setting both short and long range goals which will enable us to reach our dreams.
