What is Tae Kwon Do? To put it simply, it is a form of unarmed combat designed for the purpose of self-defense.
Students learn techniques to defend themselves through intensive physical and mental training. Tae Kwon Do is more than just self-defense, however. Disciplined training is the mortar for building a strong sense of justice, fortitude, humility, and resolve. It is the mental conditioning that separates the true practitioner form the sensationalist, content with mastering only the fighting aspects of the art.
We at Sun Yi's Academy of Tae Kwon Do strive to uphold the moral ideals upon which the art of Tae Kwon Do was founded. These are called "Tenets of Tae Kwon Do," and they summarize what it aims to achieve:
These tenets guide all true practitioners of the art. The success or failure of Tae Kwon Do training depends largely on how one observes and implements the tenets.Tae Kwon Do is an excellent family activity open to all members. No one is excluded from studying the art; children and adults learn together. No student is too old to begin.
Because of all the good things which results from studying Tae Kwon Do, it is rightfully called "a way of life". Our goal at Sun Yi's Academy is to continue the long tradition of the art of Tae Kwon Do.
