The Philosophy of Chung Won Institute

Established in 1980, Chung Won Institute of Taekwondo is considered by many to be the home of tradition and innovation. We believe martial arts are not just a hobby, but a way of life. The purpose of the martial arts is to enable individuals to achieve their full potential, both mentally and physically. Without the mental aspect, the physical aspect is meaningless. At Master Chung’s Taekwondo School, this is the philosophy we maintain.
