Our child has been taking Tae Kwon Do lessons since she was six and the benefits we feel are multifold. They include better health, knowledge of self-defense, and a stronger emotional and spiritual self. We very much appreciate also Grand Master Song’s positive approach to his teaching such that students are never fearful about making mistakes. The result is that students feel committed to their chosen martial art and the enjoyment level is enhanced. One unusual and highly beneficial aspect of Grand Master Song’s school is the fact that it offers a range of martial arts training. There are a few martial artists who are experts in both Tae Kwon Do and other martial arts such as Aikido and Tai Chi as is Grand Master Song. We also appreciate the fact that Grand Master Song is accomplished as an individual outside the realm of martial arts, being a talented artist and someone who has several post-secondary qualifications. He instills in his student’s commitment not only to the physical, but also intellectual pursuits. Finally, as with all good martial arts schools, the focus is on determination, integrity and courage. these are the values the school strives to encourage and these are the values the school teaches can be incorporated successfully in the lives of all the students of the school regardless of ethnicity, gender, age, disability or any other such difference which under other circumstances unfortunately divides people.
