Taught Tuesdays and Thursdays, I.T.F. Taekwondo is the base art at The Way.
Differing in style, philosophy and technique from the Olympic style Taekwondo (or WTF/Kukkiwon Taekwondo), which is so common in Korea, I.T.F. Taekwondo, which focuses on the art and self-defence, it is what makes The Way truly unique here in Seoul.
Following the Ch’ang Hon patterns system (Chon-ji, Dan-Gun, Do-San, etc.) and incorporating modern physics and biomechanics to increase effectiveness, I.T.F. Taekwondo is a formidable style. Our Taekwon-Do classes are augmented with techniques from Hapkido and sound principles for self-defence.
Master Kim Hoon (8th degree black belt) is one of the instructors to have reestablished I.T.F Taekwon-Do in South Korea. He majored in Taekwondo at the famed Kyunghee University, and was the captain of the Korean Tigers Demonstration Team for 10 years, visiting over 30 countries and working as a World Championship Director.
Our other ITF Taekwon-Do instructor is Sanko Lewis (5th degree black belt) with over 20 years of martial art experience. Mr. Lewis also have black belts in Hapkido and is persuing a PhD in martial art studies at Kyunghee University.
