Universal Martial Arts :: Philosophy of Taekwon-Do

Philosophy of Taekwon-Do

The philosophy of Taekwon-Do can be summed up by the last two phrases in the ITF Student Oath:

"I shall be a champion of  freedom and justice."

"I shall build a more peaceful world."

By practicing Taekwon-Do and living in accordance with its fundamental values, we will become good citizens and be able to create a better world.

The development of the Taekwon-Do philosophy by our founder General Choi Hong Hi, was influenced by oriental philosophers such as Confucius and Lao Tzu, by Buddhism, and by the philosophy of martial arts. However, the fundamental values, as expressed in the tenets of Taekwon-Do, are universal.

In the Encyclopaedia of Taekwon-Do, General Choi showed us how to find a harmonious balance between the physical and the mental.

The utmost purpose of Taekwon-Do is to eliminate fighting by discouraging the stronger’s oppression of the weaker with a power that must be based on humility, justice, morality, wisdom and faith; thus helping to build a better and more peaceful world.
