While these qualities are easy to talk about; to instill them in today's youth and our life styles is not an easy task.

TaeKwonDo, we take pride in setting our educational and motivational focus on the aforementioned qualities.
Grandmaster Park provides more to his students than a place to work out after school. It is our hope that you will allow us to take you on this journey to stronger self- confidence and accomplishment through our program.

Practice hard and you will soon accomplish far more than you thought you could do at TK TaeKwonDo with Grandmaster Park.
Kukkiwon as the World Taekwondo Headquarters has vitalized Taekwondo in the form of the leading martial art by globalizing it since its foundation in 1972.
It laid the groundwork for Taekwondo's globalization by holding the 1st World Taekwondo Championships and establishing the World Taekwondo Federation(WTF) in 1973. In 1978, Kukkiwon finally succeeded to unify Taekwondo by integrating 10 separate Taekwondo Kwans; Chung Do Kwan, Moo Duk Kwan, Jido Kwan, Song Moo Kwan, Chang Moo Kwan, Kang Duk Won, Jung Do Kwan, Oh Do Kwan, Han Moo Kwan and Kwan li Kwan.
Kukkiwon continued to cultivate the Taewondo spirit and skills after establishing WTF and the 1st World Taekwondo Championships, It organized Kukkiwon Taekwondo Demonstration Team in 1974 to travel worldwide introducing and spreading the Taekwondo spirit and skills. Kukkiwon continued to promote the martial art Taekwondo actively by conducting overseas tours for Poomsae training, international seminars and academic interchanges like the World Taekwondo Leaders Forum. It has dispatched 12 Taekwondo instructors to 12 underdeveloped countries in an effort to enhance the growing Taekwondo value. And Kukkiwon facilitates and diversifies its plans to further expand and globalize Taekwondo on the Taekwondo Friendship Training Program. Such efforts are useful to register Taewondo as an official sport in the Olympics and maintaining its status as a true Olympic sport by increasing the number of Taekwondo practitioners.
