A Letter of Welcome to All New Students from Grand Master Ha

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you as a student of Yong In Taekwondo Academy. I know that it will not be long before you feel like and important part of our Taekwondo family. The understanding, accepting and friendly, family atmosphere that you will experience as a student is a source of great pride to my staff and me.

I recognize that people begin training in Taekwondo for many different reasons. These include physical fitness, self-defense, competition, self-confidence, discipline, philosophy and for a family activity. Though you may have joined with only one of these reasons in mind, you will soon be pleasantly surprised by the variety of different benefits you get from your Taekwondo training.

Throughout your training my staff and I will strive to help you become a complete martial artist, knowledgeable in all facets of Taekwondo. At the same time, however, we wish to bring you a pure version of Taekwondo, one that provides room for you to personalize it, to make it your own. Together, we will work to develop a strong foundation on which you can build. Whatever your goal, to lose weight, reduce stress, develop self-defense skills, become a black belt, or even an Olympic champion, I look forward to personally helping you achieve your goals.

I wish you the best of luck in your Taekwondo training.

 

Sincerely,

Grand Master Sungwoo Ha
