Taekwon-Do for everyone
On this April 6th our Taekwon-Do groups join the White Card digital campaign to raise an approaching to peace, empathy and solidarity. ITF Taekwon-Do is a martial art and a way of life, but we are also an sport, and also a recreative activity and a tool for social development. And this is my work alongside with many people that I will lose count if I mention all of them. But, if they read this article they will know that from the bottom of my heart I thank them. Through programs such as Kids Program, Harmony Program and Adapted Program we bring people from all range of ages to learn and enjoy Taekwon-Do in a different way. Also we follow our five tenets: courtesy, integrity, perseverance and indomitable spirit that permeated and shaped the everyday training of Taekwon-Do. And we are qualifying instructors to teach better with good teaching methodology and the beast with a an empathetic attitude. So, everyone who step inside our dojang have stepped on the path that is worth taking. With ITF Taekwon-Do we make feel our students it was the right choice to begin with this martial art, the way to become a martial artist and become a better person everyday.
I never thought of dedicating my life to a hobby I started many years ago, especially a martial art like Taekwon-do. However, the satisfaction of contributing to build a better world with the teaching of the different Taekwon-Do programs that are offered in our teaching center is priceless. I thank everyone in one way or another who have allowed me to carry out and keep spreading ITF Taekwon-Do in Taiwan. A country to which I do not belong, but I considered as my second home.
