The 5 Tenets of Tae Kwon Do

  The Five Tenets of Tae Kwon Do and What They Mean



        Enduring respect for and consideration of self and others.  Being polite, using your manners  and having humility.

ADHD and Tae Kwon Do

The child that has ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is gifted. This special child is creative and spontaneous with the ability to hyper focus on any interesting task.

Conversely, this same child is a challenge to parents because they can often be aggressive, hyper, distractible and impulsive. The world views these children as "hard to handle" which can permanently harm self-esteem.

Children are frequently distracted or inattentive and often impulsive on occasion, but a child living with ADHD experiences these attributes most of the time.  A parent has a great deal of influence in helping their child perceive these character traits as advantageous, not a liability.

There Are Always Second Chances!

Many years ago, a troubled man stood at the crossroads of his life.  He fought with this parents, performed poorly in school and had trouble making friends.  Like many his age, he also struggleD with issues of identity:  He often thought to himself, "Who am I? and Where do I belong?"

 In a desperate bid to fit in with his peers, he joined a street gang, and so began his life as a street thug.  Then after a violent street fight and encounter with the police, he realized his life wasn't on the right track.  It was time for a change. . .

Christ says that you should find your talents and mulitply them. With Mr. Burn's guidance and encouragement our children have found one of their first talents and are well on their way to discovering all of who they are. The Burns family has been a blessing to our family as well as the parents and children that have discovered their talents in his dojong. A great family atmosphere where people and their children seem to have known each other for years. God has blessed what he has built.
