Tae Kwon-Do is not a sport because the goal isn’t about winning. When a hockey team loses they alternate players. If a baseball team is losing they’ll look to the coach. But with Tae Kwon-Do it doesn’t matter if you’re winning or losing, the goal is to improve.
It’s like a family with a team spirited effort.
It includes your instructor, your assistant instructors, your peers, and the students below you.Our team is a family. We work together, sweat together, and we bleed together.
About our team mantra.
Pil Sung. That’s our team mantra. It stands for certain victory through indomitable spirit and courage. Every day we arrive at the dojang wearing the same uniform. We are a team of people improving ourselves mentally, physically, spiritually.
You’re not in this alone.
If a student doesn’t show up for two days, I call him. Or we’ll have his friends call him, because we’re all in this together. It’s always been a matter of just getting yourself here because I promise you’ll feel better than you did before you arrived.
We all have those days.
Sure we all have those days were we don’t feel like training. It’s easy to come home from school or work and plop down on the couch, eat potato chips, and watch television. That’s why we encourage each other to come in together. That’s teamwork.
We work together.
I use teamwork with all my instructors. We have regular meetings to stay connected and keep our fingers on the pulse of the school. We make sure we touch everybody’s soul. Maybe a student is having a rough time at home or maybe the student is struggling at school. We work together and communicate with one another to see how we can help.
Are we a sports team? No, we’re not. We’re better than that.
