Our goals and mission statement:

• To teach the FIVE aims of Tae Kwon DO; Respect, Humility, Perseverance, Self-control and Honesty
• To contribute to a safe and peaceful community
When we state that our goal is to teach the highest quality martial arts, it refers not only to high standards of technical skills, but to the character development and leadership skills that are an essential element of truly learning Tae Kwon Do. Therefore, our training includes skills valuable in daily life: cooperation, respect, self-control, focus, and confidence. We know from experience that training in Tae Kwon Do helps students in their personal and professional life. The positive character traits that develop will help them at work and school, at home and on the playing field.


USTC Curriculum

Although Tae Kwon Do is a system of self-defense, it is more than a physical fighting skill. It represents a way of thinking and a pattern of life requiring strict discipline. It is a system of training both the mind and the body in which great emphasis is placed on the moral development of its students. Students receive instruction in principles such as respect, humility, perseverance, self-control and honesty. Students will learn to work together as a team and develop a strong sense of community with-in the group. Students will be taught to use their minds to avoid conflict whenever possible. They will learn to use their spirit, mind and body to punch, block and kick with effective precision. Each participant will be issued a dobok (uniform) and a white belt. They will learn a form, sabanchuk (kicking form), basic motion, counting from 1-10 in Korean & board breaking, along with several other self-defense techniques. Master Kim will provide top quality instruction to each of his students. He believes that the most important aspect of Tae Kwon Do that he can convey to his pupils is his spirit. It is the spirit that will live on much longer than the mind or the body and is something that can be handed down through the generations. One’s spirit is something that can never cease to exist.
