Taekwondo as a martial art is a life long journey. The Black Belt is a symbol of excellence, not a symbol of destination. Getting a Black Belt is not the purpose of training. Being a Black Belt is the natural consequence of years of sweat, effort and determination that continue in all aspects of life. A new Black Belt signifies that the holder of such rank is accomplished enough in the basics to begin serious training.
While a Black Belt helps instruct other students and passes on what he has learned, he also recognizes how much more there is for him to learn and continue his own training and advancement. By teaching others, the student is also analysing his own abilities and improve, as well as developing leadership skills.
This is part of the circle of Taekwondo. This keeps the art of Taekwondo alive for many generations and is the principle on which Taekwondo has sustained itself for thousands of years. The knowledge and art of Taekwondo is a gift that is meant to be shared with others who strive to learn and to improve themselves
Our Leadership Program aims to help Black Belts who want to take their Taekwondo practice to a higher level as well as learn and develop leadership skills that would be useful in all areas of life.
