Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our body and mind. Today, it has become a global sport that has gained an international reputation, and stands among the official games in the Olympics.
Taekwondo has been developing with the 5000-year long history of Korea, being called by several different names in the course. In Korea, Taekwondo began as a defense martial art called "Subak" or "Taekkyon," and developed as a way of training body and mind in the ancient kingdom of Koguryo, under the name of "Sunbae." Taekwondo today is similar to the martial arts in other Oriental countries and shares some features with them, because in the course of its evolution it has gained many different styles that existed in the martial arts of the countries surrounding Korea, like Japan and China.
Taekwondo pursues harmonious growth and improvements of life through its unique activities. This is why one could say Taekwondo is a way of life. To ultimately enable ourselves to lead more valuable lives, we would do well by finding the guiding principles deeply hidden in Taekwondo.
What Are Martial Arts Values?
When we talk about martial arts we are talking about respect, honor, integrity, loyalty and the development of other personal attributes such as humility, maturity, a disciplined character and inner peace. Children who participate in a martial arts training program also tend to demonstrate the characteristics of good citizenship and appropriate judgment in confrontational situations.
One effective way to accomplish this is by attending martial arts training classes with your child or as a family. Every member of the family can benefit from the development of a positive atmosphere in which to reinforce the physical, emotional and spiritual values available through martial arts training.
