A WORD FROM OUR HEAD MASTERMy vision is to instill in their students a sound mind and strong sense of self-confidence. Students will learn discipline and respect through the art of Taekwondo. There is much more to Taekwondo than kicking and punching. It has been designed as a non-violent art system for the entire body and mind. It is, quite literally, a philosophy and a way of life. All WCT students will be taught Respect for their country, self, fellow man and all authority.

6TH DEGREE BLACK BELT / HEAD MASTER
Through Taekwondo training, we strive to develop the full potential in our students, enabling them to embrace the challenges of life more successfully, while setting the highest standard of excellence. World Champion Taekwondo will provide unparalleled Taekwondo martial arts training throughout Connecticut and all 50 States of the United States of America with top world champion Master Instructors with a minimum of 4th Degree Black Belt. All the Master Instructors have been chosen and trained by Grand Master Park before establishing their own schools. This will be done while maintaining the main Taekwondo training focus: respect, discipline, confidence and self-confidence. WCT students will learn more than basic techniques of self defense, they will learn the five benefits of Taekwondo which are the cornerstones of the philosophy that embody the art: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control, and determination. WCT Masters will develop in every student a strong sense of self confidence while maintaining the Taekwondo training focus: respect and discipline.
OUR VISION & GUIDING PRINCIPLES
To maintain and develop only students who adhere to and maintain the five benefits of Taekwondo. To train, monitor and maintain only; the students who show respect for self, others and country and students who show determination and discipline.
Our schools and teaching methods are guided by a common set of values which are very similar to the Boy-Girl Scouts of America. We believe that training in Taekwondo is an opportunity to teach important values which will not only help our students achieve higher ranks in Taekwondo, but also will stay with them and help them their entire life. God gave us one body, one mind and one sprit; it is our job to take care of and develop all three.
