  • 10 Reasons Martial Arts Benefits Kids

    Kenny Myers, a child care expert from Texas, has a great article at http://www.kenneymyers.com/blog/10-reasons-martial-arts-benefits-kids/. Kenny is not a martial arts instructor or school owner, just a child care expert, so his article focuses on children. However, in many respects I would go so far as to say the title should be "10 Reasons Martial Arts Benefits Everyone".

    Without reposting his entire article, the 10 reasons he lists are:

    1. Fostering Self-Discipline
    2. Boosting Socialization Skills
    3. Encouraging Physical Activity
  • Grandmaster Joon Pyo Choi Biography: Unversity Study, part 6

         I entered Pusan National University in March as a freshman. I had not learned my lesson very well in high school however. As I had done in high school, I didn't study, and any chance I had, I spent my time practicing Taekwondo. If I had five or ten minute, I would step outside and practice kicking. My grandmaster was Byung Jik Ro, but he resided in Seoul, so I continued to study on my own.

  • Mind Supports Body, Body Supports Mind

    The July Senior Class was held July 6th at the Main School in Reynoldsburg. Over 50 students of all ranks attended and Senior Grand Master Choi led instruction. He started with traditional Moo Gong Ryu skills, then continued with Geukki kicking drills. Each of the five basic kicks were completed in a square pattern: 2 kicks in each direction. Then a third kick in each direction was added. For Front Snap Kick, it was a Jump Front Snap Kick. For Side Kick, a Sliding Side kick. For Round House Kick, a Skipping Round House Kick.

         During the school year, I trained in Taekwondo every minute that I was awake. I'd go to Taekwondo class after school, and then run home for dinner. After dinner I had to do homework, but I only wanted to think about martial arts.

  • Grandmaster Joon Pyo Choi Biography: Traveler, part 4

         South Korea after the war was a dangerous place. The streets were wild and just walking down the street could lead to a fight. The war had affected the whole country, and those were the things that we had to endure.

  • March Senior Class Teaches that Success in the Dojang Leads to Success in Real Life

    The March Senior Class was held March 2nd at the Main School in Reynoldsburg. Senior Grand Master Choi continued teaching his unification of all Moogongryu basics, with the addition of forward and backwards Innae. Traditionally, Innae #2 - #9 is performed by stepping back with the right and then the left foot. Senior Grand Master Choi showed how Innae could be performed forward, by stepping forward with the right or left foot before performing the block and the strike.
