I am not proud to be called Grandmaster.
I am grateful. Grateful that people find me worthy of that title.
I would like to welcome you all on my new website. My intention is to use it as a community in which we can work together on the spreading of our beautiful Korean Martial Arts, in quality and in quantity.
I feel Martial Arts, when learned in the right way, by good, open and honest instructors, based on the right values will contribute to a better understanding amongst each other and therefore to a better world.
This better world starts in your street, your dojang, your city and your country. Do your part and influence your students to do their part in creating this better world.
If you are a Master or in the future even a Grandmaster, never ever forget what I taught you in all these years past and I will always repeat in all those years to come:
YOUR STUDENTS ARE NOT THERE FOR YOU, YOU ARE THERE FOR YOUR STUDENTS !!!!
MARTIAL ARTS IS NOT ABOUT FIGHTING, IT’S A TOOL TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN ACCORDING TO OUR TENETS:
1. Courtesy (Ye Ui)
Taekwon-Do students should attempt to be polite to one another and to respect others. Students should address instructors as Sir and to bow to the instructors before and after classes. Turning up early or on time for classes is also an aspect of courtesy.
2. Integrity (Yom Chi)
One who has integrity is able to define what is right or wrong and have the conscience, if wrong, to feel guilt. Taekwon-Do students should strive to be honest and to live by moral principles.
3. Perseverance (In Nae)
Perseverance means having patience. One of the most important secrets of becoming a leader in Taekwon-Do is to overcome every difficulty by perseverance. Confucius said,” One who is impatient in trivial matters can seldom achieve success in matters of great importance.”
4. Self-Control (Guk Gi)
Without self-control, a Taekwon-Do student is just like any fighter in the street. Loss of self-control is disastrous both in sparring and personal affairs. “The term of stronger is the person who wins over oneself rather than someone else”, Lao Tzu.
5. Indomitable Spirit (Baekjul Boolgool)
A true student of Taekwon-Do will never give up, not even when faced with insurmountable odds. The most difficult goals can be achieved with indomitable spirit.
