Fitness Of Mind As Well As Body
The tremendous physical training is only part of the ultimate goal of TaeKwonDo training. The true focus is on the harnessing of human potential, the power each of us possess but rarely ever tap. If TaeKwonDo is to be called an art of self defense, then its goal is best described in this manner: the best self defense is that of a serene, self-contained person, at peace with himself and the world around him.
This type of personal development emphasizes but is not limited to the development of mental discipline, emotional self-restraint and a philosophy of kindness, humility and strong moral character. One who has mastered TaeKwonDo is a powerful but gentle individual.
“Knowledge in the brain, honesty in the heart, and strength in the body” is a motto that martial artists around the world share. TaeKwonDo’s quest is to spread its logic, goodness, and philosophy for the cause of world peace.
