At the Tanny Academy of Martial Arts, we teach traditional Taekwondo. We teach the official ITF TaeKwon-Do curriculum developed by General Choi Hong Hi as outlined in the TaeKwon-Do Encyclopedia. Here is a brief overview of our curriculum.
Our training covers the original 24 Chang hon patterns, fundamental movements and techniques, breaking, self defense, and sparring as well as conditioning.
Our children, teens and adult ITF Taekwon-do classes are based on the 5 tenets of Taekwon-do:
COURTESY (Ye Ui)
INTEGRITY (Yom Chi)
PERSEVERANCE (In Nae)
SELF CONTROL (Guk Gi)
INDOMITABLE SPIRIT (Baekjul Boolgool)
ITF Taekwon-do was developed by General Choi Hong Hi. The philosophy of the Taekwon-do was largely influenced by oriental philosophers such as Confucius and Lao Tzu, by Buddhism, and by the philosophy of martial arts. Our student creeds reflect the philosophical influence and is the basis of our training:
- I shall observe the tenants of Taekwon-do.
- I shall respect my instructors and seniors.
- I shall never misuse Taekwon-do.
- I shall become a champion of freedom and justice.
- I shall build a more peaceful world.
