DSMA Teaching Philosophy

To teach TaeKwon-Do so that it has something to offer every student regardless of aptitude or ability. To strive to provide an energetic, supportive, and disciplined learning environment where goals are repeatedly set and achieved. Success will be measured in personal pride and accomplishment. In addition to the physical goals I will help my students achieve, I will also set moral benchmarks by teaching the five tenets of TaeKwon-Do:

Courtesy – Integrity – Perseverance – Self-Control – Indomitable Spirit
