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.
