Philosophy

Choon Sil Kwan Taekwondo and Philosophy

The purpose of Chong Sil Kwan Taekwondo is to develop an individual’s mental and physical well being through a highly stylized and deliberate method of rigorous martial arts training. The result of this training is an empowering sense of self-worth, and the ability to control one’s physical state and personal destiny. The student is guided through four stages of philosophical development:

  1. Imagination
  2. Inspiration
  3. Actualization
  4. Realization

In the initial stage of philosophical development, students must learn to use their imagination to set goals beyond their current limitations and, from this, visualize their achievements in advance. This, in turn, strengthens their belief system to the point that specific goals are possible and obtainable. With goals firmly in mind, the students must learn to self-inspire themselves into action, as they develop a sense of self-worth. Without this, they may never strive for success as they may feel that they do not deserve the rewards that accompany achievement.

Actualization is taking the first step and entering into the process of the work and reward system. The development of a strong work ethic is the most important element in this philosophy. Even the most average of people can achieve excellence with a positive work habit.

Realization refers to the attainment of one’s goals. Upon reaching these achievements, new privileges are merited as new goals are recognized. This process perpetuates itself as the previous results offer new challenges and new responsibilities. This positive growth cycle not only improves oneself, but also the immediate world around you. This concept of “Constant and Never Ending Improvement” is the ultimate purpose of Choong Sil Kwan.

In the tradition of Taekwondo, our school has adopted the Tenets of Taekwondo and Student Oath. We feel that by living and developing these character traits, a student can have a better life and help others to do the same.

Tenents

  • Courtesy
  • Integrity
  • Perseverance
