Congratulations on your first step towards self-improvement and learning to protect yourself.
At Koo's Taekwondo Academy, we are committed to providing the highest quality martial arts instruction empowering our students with valuable skills for daily life and contributiing to a safe and peaceful community.
Here at the Koo's Martial Arts Academy, our motto is "cultivation of exceptional attitude by fostering our students mind, body and spirit."
Taekwondo can be a fun, educational, and healthy way for children not only to keep physically fit but also to learn respect and how to understand and resolve conflicts peacefully. But this can only happen when Taekwondo is taught as a whole endeavor. Physical self-defense can only properly be taught in the context of self-understanding, which is, helping young people avoid and resolve conflict before it becomes a physical confrontation. These skills, of conflict avoidance and resolution, need to be taught tighter with conflict management, that is, mental self-defense together with physical self-defense. This enables young people to use their brains as a first line of defense to cope with being bullied, without having to resort immediately to physical means. Physical self-defense skills give Taekwondo students the confidence not to fight and therefore to use mental skills first. Taught in this manner, Taekwondo can be a valuable way for young people to acquire important social skills, skills that will naturally make for healthier and more peaceful relationships.
Taekwondo is not only kicking and punching but more importantly, at the Koo's Taekwondo Academy, we are committed to teaching our students the life skill that will help them succeed in any endeavor they may choose to do.
Welcome to the Koo's Martial Arts Academy.
THE JOURNEY OF 1,000 MILES
The journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step. Nearly everyone believes that they can take a single step and walk a few blocks without much trouble, but few people think that they can walk 1,000 miles. The only difference between the person who walks a thousand miles and those who won't try is, attitude and perseverance. If you look at the 1,000 mile journey as a group of mile walks, then what seeme impossible becomes believable. If you start and never stop, you will succeed.
On behalf of myself and my instructors, welcome to our academy. We are here to encourage and help you. We want you to set your goals high. You dreams can come true.
ENJOY THE CHALLENGE
CLEAR MIND AND STRONG BODY
