We have a body, a mind, and a spirit. It is the philosophy of Tae Kwon Do that all three must be strong and healthy and the well being of each is dependent upon the other two. For this reason, Tae Kwon Do aims at developing the whole person.
The body is developed through regular exercise. The purpose of this is not to build huge muscles, but to improve their tone and flexibility. Once a state of physical fitness is achieved, the focus shifts to developing speed, control and endurance. It is necessary to practice the techniques of Tae Kwon Do until they become almost automatic. To do this, one must develop a strong mind. One must learn to concentrate on an objective. One must learn to use the mind to control the movements of the body, using only the muscles necessary to a particular movement and keeping the others relaxed and ready for use at any time. The economy of movement saves strength. One must learn to focus all of one’s energy at a precise instant toward a particular point to achieve the most powerful effect. In addition to the benefits of a healthy mind and body, the code of the HWA RANG DO warrior is an excellent tool for building spiritual strength. It is important to remember that the development of the body, mind, and spirit occurs simultaneously; each is contributing to the development of the others in an ever upward cycle. To gain a full understanding of the art of TAE KWON DO, it is necessary to have some knowledge of the history of Korea. To observe how such a small country managed to survive through three thousand years of being besieged, raided, occupied and invaded and to come to know the unfailing spirit of the Korean, his challenging strength to withstand any adversity, his arduous, often difficult search for and inner desire of harmony.
