Mr. Jung is a 2nd-degree black belt that has trained in taekwondo for about 10 years. During his time in Jeon’s Taekwondo, he has participated in all aspects, such as doing extra sparring classes, leadership classes, and joining the demonstration team to perform countless times. Mr. Jung has a love for exercise and thus is enrolled in Kinesiology at the U of A, the study of human movement.
Mr. Jung loves teaching in ways that are active and exciting for students, as he finds that some kids have a better time learning when the atmosphere is engaging and allows them to move. He recognizes the important role that a martial arts class might have compared to school, which teaches in a different way. Taekwondo has methods of teaching that are unique to itself that are able to improve one’s character.
What Mr. Jung feels has changed most while doing taekwondo is his attitude and confidence, and he wants to help kids to be stronger not only physically, but mentally. At first, he was uncertain of himself, but through practicing taekwondo, he was able to find a community that enjoys the same things that he does and was able to naturally make friends and longtime interests.
Mr. Jung’s main focus is to help each student individually in what they need. For example, it could be to help those who have too much energy to release it through learning in an active way. Or it could be to help those who lack confidence, to learn the basics to defend themselves, or to be more confident in their daily life. Whatever it is, Mr. Jung strives to give others the experience he had while doing taekwondo.
