GRANDMASTER SUNG CHAN CHANG

Master Sung-chan Chang has over 38 years of martial arts experience. Master Chang is a Seventh degree black belt in the traditional Korean martial art of Taekwondo, certified by the Kukkiwon. The Kukkiwon is the official World Headquarters for authentic Taekwondo. Master Chang was born in South Korea, and is a graduate of the world famous Yong-In University, where he was awarded a Master’s degree in Sports Management, specializing in Taekwondo. Master Chang is also a Seventh degree black belt in Yongmoodo. Master Chang is one of the elite few who is not only a Master in the arts of Taekwondo and Yongmoodo, but also has a formal university graduate degree in physical education and teaching.


At the core of our philosophy is that we must take proper care of our bodies and minds. In order to advance as martial artists, we must practice Taekwondo. However, it is essential to incorporate quiet time, proper diet and hydration, and rest. We must also think positively, avoid speaking negatively at all times and serve others. By practicing these things daily to keep our bodies, minds, and spirits in good health, we will begin to increase our positive energy. We remind students that internal change (eliminating bad habits) is never swift and will not be as recognizable as the external changes the body shows from the physical training that occurs. Yet the internal changes are more important and are absolutely essential to succeed as a Taekwondo practitioner.
