Welcome to Masters Tae Kwon-Do And Family Fitness
Masters Tae-kwon-do has been providing martial arts instruction at 35 Van Kirk Drive in Brampton since 1995. This is a 6,000 square foot facility, fully air conditioned and with an aerobic flooring system in all training areas.
Masters Tae-kwon-do is focused on providing a strong instructor/student relationship. It is this interaction between the instructor and student that truly enhances the martial arts experience. Our team of highly qualified black belt instructors understands the importance of connecting with each student to address individual needs and concerns.
Our goal is to teach each student that Tae-kwon-do is more than just kicking and punching. We therefore place a strong emphasis on the building blocks that make Tae-kwon-do an art, rather than a mere assortment of physical techniques. This involves strict adherence to the 5 tenets of Tae-kwon-do, which are woven into the fabric of martial arts.
COURTESY (Ye Ui)
Tae-kwon-do students should attempt to practice the following elements of courtesy to build up their noble character and to conduct the training in an orderly manner.
To promote the spirit of mutual concessions To be polite to one another To distinguish instructor from student, senior from junior, and elder from younger To behave oneself according to etiquette To respect others” possessions To handle matters with fairness and sincerity
INTEGRITY (Yom Chi)
One must be able to define right and wrong and have a conscience. Students are taught that their actions have to live up to their words.
PERSEVERANCE (In Nae)
There is an old Oriental saying, “Patience leads to virtue or merit. To achieve something, whether it is a higher degree or the perfection of a technique, one must set a goal, and then constantly persevere.
One of the most important secrets in becoming a leader of Tae-kwon-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.”
SELF-CONTROL (Ye Ui)
This tenet is extremely important inside and outside the dojang, whether conducting oneself in sparring or in one”s personal affairs.
According to Lao-Tzu “the term of stronger is the person who wins over oneself rather than someone else.”
NDOMITABLE SPIRIT (Baekjul Boolgool)
It is shown when a courageous person and his principles are pitted against overwhelming odds. A serious student of Tae-kwon-do will be modest and honest.
If confronted with injustice, he will deal with the belligerent without any fear or hesitation at all, with indomitable spirit, regardless of whosoever and however much the number may be. Those who have pursued their dreams earnestly and strenuously with indomitable spirit will achieve their goals.
