Philosophy of our Teaching
Our Philosophy is simple – Discipline. Results. Achievement. Confidence. Success!
Hand-picked by Kwan Jung Niem Hiawatha himself, every instructor must complete years of rigorous training prior to becoming a Sabum Niem (Senior Instructor). To preserve the school’s high ideals, they must continually train to stay current on the latest and most effective self-defense techniques and instructional methods as well as nutritional and exercise physiology regimes. We expect the most quality from our instructors and in turn, you can expect unequaled Martial Arts instruction.
Regimented and Fun Dojang environment hold student’s attention and improve their ability to learn. Learning helps to build a strong foundation of self-confidence, accomplishment, focus and discipline.
Developing self-confidence will teach children to respect themselves and, most importantly to respect others. It will give them focus, dedication, motivation, and a non-quitting spirit. These traits, learned by training and working hard, not only will help students in the Dojang, but will give them the confidence to know they can be successful at anything they put their mind to. Martial Arts is especially helpful with school work.
Discipline. Results. Achievement. Confidence. Success!
Each of these virtues cannot be achieved without the other. Success depends upon the eagerness to be disciplined enough to see results, to achieve your goals and to become self-confident as a result of accomplishing your first goal… TO SUCCEED!
