You will find traditional martial arts instruction at our school. This is our foundation. Taekwondo and Hapkido are taught both as a form of self defense and as a martial art, not a martial sport. Our instructors utilize both traditional methods and a modern teaching philosophy in our approach to provide the very best quality, in-depth knowledge, and training experience available in our Taekwondo and Hapkido programs.
From the beginning and throughout history, Taekwondo and Hapkido applicants who qualified and were accepted as students were required to learn the known core subjects of their time: Math, Science, Language Arts, Social Studies, along with Poetry and Calligraphy. Our school follows this same model. This is why our highest priority is placed on the “Cultivation of Character,” not just kicking, punching and acquiring new belts.
In staying with tradition, Universal Taekwondo-Hapkido students are taught a system of deeply rooted core values in association with embracing strong academics. Our school age Taekwondo and Hapkido students instruction begins with being introduced into a welcoming and structured environment. All school age students are required to present their academic progress reports/report cards to their instructors as soon as they become available.
In the past and now in the present, the intended purpose for such high standards are for the continual cultivation of character. Throughout history, society has held martial art masters and their students to a higher standard. Martial arts students are expected to become not just role models, but leaders, in all facets of daily life and in society. This system of teaching provides the necessary tools for success in life.
Beginning with our Little Tigers programs through and including our adult Taekwondo and Hapkido programs, you will see a consistency of well-orchestrated and organized discipline. along with consistently challenging instruction that is age appropriate. After one month since becoming a UTH student, you will notice a change. You will be different. After six months since becoming a UTH student, you will have changed in positively profound ways.
This, however, is only the beginning of your martial arts education. Every student will continuously be evolving throughout their martial arts journey. This is why Master instructor and student relationships are so important, counselling, guiding and always supporting. We believe decorum breeds camaraderie and loyalty through mutual respect.
Students at UTH should expect to be challenged and inspired as never before. Your mind, body, and spirit will be transformed as you pursue your martial arts education, while studying at our school.
We look forward to welcoming you into our martial arts family.
Master Daniel W. Kilburn
Where Character is Cultivated.
