Recently a friend asked me what I felt the benefits of Tae Kwon Do training are for me and what I feel my purpose is now that I’ve joined the SUSA program, so I will try to explain.
Personally, the greatest benefit has been time spent with my family, especially my son David. When he was 5 years old he expressed interest in joining Yoo’s Martial Arts but he was too young for the children’s class. However, he could attend family classes if he were with a sibling or a parent! So he and I decided to do it together and we signed up immediately. David and I trained for 9 years together through every belt rank all the way to 3rd degree black belt. We had a great journey together that we’ll always remember.
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art that has strong traditional roots but also has some elements of science to it. Taekwondo, at its heart, is a fighting system, but it has some strong sporting elements and it also has internal elements, which help to develop the mental strength and the ethics of Taekwondo practitioners.
To understand why the Olympics has included taekwondo as a sport and no other Eastern forms of martial arts you will need to understand the standard by which they choose which sport to include and which they will not. There are 2 issues that stand in the way more than anything for the inclusion of other martial arts.
