M.Ed., ND. D.Sc. Chief Instructor/Founder Elite TaeKwonDo Institute
Welcome to the Elite Tae Kwon Do Institute. As a member of this institute, you should take pride in the fact that you will be receiving top quality training. I believe that Tae Kwon Do is more than just kicking and punching, it is a continuous learning process. I also believe that Tae Kwon Do demands that its practitioners learn respect. Respect the good in life and make the good a way of life. Respect is essential to Tae Kwon Do practitioners. To develop this respect, one must first learn to respect his own body. If one respects his body, he will train and care for it properly. With proper training and care, the body will stay healthy and grow strong, and so will the mind. Another virtue essential to the development of the martial artist is humility. One may learn to kick and punch in a few months, but a lifetime is spent learning the way of Tae Kwon Do. Great strength is achieved through humility, and the greater the humility, the greater the strength. As chief instructor of the institute, I intend to continue to produce quality. Learning Tae Kwon Do with E.T.I. is not an easy task. Remember: Nothing that is truly good comes easy, and no one likes anything that is hard. There is a reason for our being called the “ELITE” Tae Kwon Do Institute. We are separate from the rest. So if you appreciate quality, you will enjoy working out at the institute to attain your goals. As you reach your highest level of potential you will come to understand what Tae Kwon Do can and will do for you.
