WHAT WE TEACH

TRADITIONAL MARTIAL VALUES

History

Chun Kuhn Taekwondo is a traditional martial art developed by Supreme Master Kim, Bok-Man, the most influential pioneer of Taekwon-Do. Supreme Master Kim’s martial arts training began in 1941 when he was just 7 years old. In 1955, Supreme Master Kim joined Gen. Choi Hong-Hi to develop Taekwon-Do for the Korean Army. Chun Kuhn Taekwondo represents Supreme Master Kim’s continuous development of Taekwondo since its founding.

Respect/Etiquette

Chun Kuhn Taekwondo begins and ends with respect. In the dojang, at home, at school, at all times. We bow when we enter and exit the training floor. We bow to the American flag. We bow to our masters, instructors and parents. We are encouraged to always do our best. We are expected to keep our uniforms, clothing and living spaces clean and orderly. We are expected to practice good hygiene. We are challenged to step outside our comfort zones and discover greatness.

Moral Character

Character development is one result of practicing a traditional martial art such as Chun Kuhn Taekwondo. Traditional martial arts follow similar moral codes or principles. In Taekwondo many follow General Choi Hong-Hi’s 5 Tenets of Taekwon-Do: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control & Indomitable Spirit. Such simple words, yet so difficult to master! These tenets, or character traits, represent the “Do,” the way or path, of traditional Taekwondo.

CURRICULUM

CHUN KUHN TAEKWONDO

Chun Kuhn Taekwondo is a traditional martial art. Few agree what the word “traditional” means. Chun Kuhn Taekwondo is traditional in that it teaches all the components traditionally taught in the art while stressing self-improvement and moral character. These components include line drills, step sparring, self-defense, defense against weapons, destruction, and free sparring. Some call Chun Kuhn Taekwondo a “complete martial art” because from the beginning Supreme Master Kim has developed and taught weapons in addition to an empty-hand curriculum. No other Taekwondo-based system offers an authentic Korean weapons curriculum unless it is borrowed from another martial art. Lessons taught in a traditional martial art such as Chun Kuhn Taekwondo are lessons one carries for a lifetime.

KUKKIWON (OLYMPIC) TAEKWONDO

Kukkiwon, or Olympic style, Taekwondo has developed into a global martial sport for competition, such as one finds in the Olympics. Kukkiwon Taekwondo is often characterized by an emphasis on competition performance to score points and best others. While there is certainly a place for friendly competition in the martial arts, Kansas Chun Kuhn Taekwondo continues to stress the Five Tenets of Taekwondo and self-improvement as greater goals beyond trophies, medals and accolades while teaching the Kukkiwon poomsae and Olympic-style, or continuous, sparring.
