Word to the Wise

"Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful, lest you let other people spend it for you."
- Carl Sandberg


Philosophy of Taekwon-Do

Mental Discipline * Character * Moral Culture

Philosophy
The utmost purpose of Taekwon-Do is to eliminate fighting by discouraging the stronger's oppression of the weaker with a power that must be based on humanity, justice, morality, wisdom and faith, thus helping to build a better and more peaceful world.

 

It is my firm belief that through Taekwon-Do, anyone can garner enough strength to become a guardian of justice, to challenge social disunity and, to clutivate the human spirit to the highest level attainable. It is in this spirit I am dedicating the art of Taekwon-Do to the people of the world. The philosophy of Taekwon-Do is based on the ethical, moral, and spiritual standards by which men can live together in harmony, and the patterns are inspired by the ideals and exploits of great men from Korean history.

Under no circumstances should Taekwon-Do be used for selfish, aggressive or violent purposes, either by an individual or group. Nor will Taekwon-Do be used for any commercial or political purpose whatsoever.

I have set forth the following philosophy and guidelines which will be the cornerstone of Taekwon-Do and by which all serious students of this art are encouraged to live.
-General Choi Hong Hi, Founder of Taekwon-Do

Link to biography of General Choi Hong-Hi

Be willing to go where the going is tough and do the things that are worth doing even if they are difficult.

Be gentle to the weak and tough to the strong.

Be content with what you have in money and position, never in skills.

Always finish what you begin, be it large or small.

Be a willing teacher to anyone regardless of religion, race, or ideology.

Never yield to repression or threat in the pursuit of a noble cause.

Teach attitude and skill with action rather than words.

Always be yourself even though your circumstances may change.

Be the eternal teacher who teaches with the body when young, with words when old, and by moral precept even after death.
