Self Defense
Self Defence (Hosinsul) is one of the four principles of taekwondo. Although taekwondo is a "self defense" sport in itself, it focusses on high and spinning kicks which are not very suitable for real life (street) application. Hosinsul is a mixture of all kinds of techniques, including grappling/locks as well as defending against armed attackers etc
Tae kwon do is also a way to build up more confidence. Rather than only knowing just learning taekwondo, we have to apply the principles of Taekwondo in our life. Though it is a martial art, its discipline, technique and mental training are the mortar for building sense of justice, fortitude, humility and resolve day to day issues with confidence.
Self Control
Without self-control, a Taekwon-Do student is just like any fighter in the street. Loss of self-control is disastrous both in sparring and personal affairs. "The term of stronger is the person who wins over oneself rather than someone else", Lao Tzu
What students and parents have to say about NTC...
In addition to the skilled instruction of Master Sean, Master George and Instructors is the friendship and camaraderie among the students and parents of younger students. Being a member of NTC is a great experience for the entire family.
-Robert Melendes
Master Sean and Master George have an amazing manner with their students, both children and adults. I watched my son gain new confidence and skills; learn discipline and respect; and have a fantastic time as he progressed toward his goal of earning a black belt.
-Greg Neagle
We feel so fortunate to have found NTC, it has been a deeply rewarding experience for my family. Master Sean and Master George are highly skilled instructors, who guide their students through clearly defined curriculum, with consistent feedback and encouragement, while providing a positive, fun and safe learning environment for all students. We are grateful for such caring and dedicated Masters, the hard-working staff and all the wonderful families we meet at NTC.
-T. Chung
NTC has become a sort of home where fellow students have become like family; it is a safe, friendly, and comfortable environment. The Masters consistently direct intensive classes with clear instructions, thorough warm-ups, excellent conditioning exercises, and a balanced approach to learning techniques from session to session.
