JH Kim Taekwondo Institute -
Martial Arts Training for Kids, Teens & Adults






SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY & TENETS

Although the school holds on to traditional values, we recognise that Taekwondo as an art must constantly evolve, requiring the dedication of practitioners to improve all of its facets.

Our Philosophy

Non-Political
We devote ourselves solely to teaching and practicing the art of Taekwondo. Anyone who shares with us the desire to become a good martial artist is welcome at our school, and can rest assured that there are no politics here.

Complete System
We teach Taekwondo as a complete system. This includes hand and foot blocks, punches, kicks, sweeps, joint locks, grappling and throws, as well as sport Taekwondo (Olympic rules). Some students may choose to specialise in one or more of the specific areas, but the school will always provide classes on all aspects of Taekwondo.

Analytical Approach 
Any technique used by a martial artist must make good sense and be based upon sound physical principles. The practitioner must have a clear understanding of why each technique is done a certain way. Therefore, technical discussions with other students or instructors are encouraged in our school.

A Home For Martial Artists
We want each of our members to view the dojang as his/her home as a martial artist. Every member is allowed unlimited access to the school and classes during our extensive school hours.

School Tenets

Improvement of Mind and Body
We strive to achieve a harmonious balance in ourselves. The purpose of our school is not to produce tough and dangerous people, but to provide the means by which students bring out the best in themselves both physically and mentally. We provide balanced development for our members.

Ethical Self-Conduct
We advocate contributing to making this world a better and safer place for humanity, not through vigilantism, but through ethical self-conduct. Our students are instilled with the importance of responsible behaviour. As more people follow this path, the influence of ethical behaviour will grow stronger.

Unity Among Members
Our Dojang is a small international community in itself, with students from many nations and heritages. And yet, our love and practice of Taekwondo have brought us together. When we treat each other as family in our Dojang.
